We'd love to have you join our happy diverse throng. There's nothing like the inspiration and friendships of fellow artists - be they budding or master artists!
Membership is just $30 per year or $25 for pensioners. However, for 2017 only, both renewing members, and new members will pay a once-off $50 levy to cover the costs of a major extension to the rooms. Consequently, the normal $10 joining fee for new members is waived for 2017.
Renewals are due in June each year for the next 12 months.
