We give art a chance to be seen by giving it a space to be shown.

Let us show your artwork and help you share your passion for art with your community. Membership with Associated Artists is open to any aspiring or practicing artist over the age of fifteen. Any artist, any medium, any style, and any level of artistic development. Creative novices exhibit side-by-side with practiced professionals, progressive ideas cavort with classical approaches. Every member finds an array of opportunities in which they may participate.

AAWS is located in the Milton Rhodes Center for the Arts centered in the heart of downtown Winston-Salem and features a variety of exhibits each year. Our primary gallery is the Womble Carlyle Gallery which boasts approximately 1800 square feet of flexible exhibition space so our artists can exhibit anything they create, from small intimate paintings to large instillation works we have the space to show it. All new members are Associate Members and may participate in Associate Member shows, All-Member shows, and our extensive Community Exhibits program that gets our artists work into businesses all around Winston-Salem.

Associate Members who are interested in professional accreditation and building their resumes may choose to apply for Juried Membership. Applications are accepted quarterly and reviewed by a panel of selected professionals. Upon acceptance, Juried members are allowed to enter their works into our juried art exhibits. In addition, Juried Members may participate in Associate member shows.
