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! Membership with Associated Artists is open to emerging and professional artists as well as art appreciators interested in supporting visual arts in the community. Membership benefits include:

  • Free admission to lectures, workshops, and most special programs 
  • Networking & volunteer opportunities with local artists and arts supporters 
  • Guaranteed exhibition opportunities  
  • Discounted entry fees for national juried exhibitions sponsored by AAWS
  • Ability to hold office in the organization and serve on committees


  • STUDENT $20
    High school students over the age of 15 and college students may join at the student rate. 

    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.

  • JURIED $75
    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.
