The Benefits of Membership


The Arts are an important part of life and our community. There are many ways to participate: as a working artist, as a learning artist, as a volunteer, as a donor, or as an arts supporter.



Art can be a very insular occupation. Many artists work alone in their studios with just a radio or CD player for company. For some, this is the best way to get those ‘creative juices’ flowing. For others, though, working together in small groups is more rewarding, and is the reason some artists choose to share studios or join in co-operative projects of creativity.
