Our Membership Scheme is open to artists who want to work together, to promote their artwork.

To be eligible artists must demonstrate a sustained commitment to their art practice, and to the ethos of West Walls Artists. We are looking for artists producing quality outcomes, with which we can forge a genuine connection for mutual support and benefit. We wish to be on good terms with all other arts groups and organisations in the region.

Applicants should be aware that West Walls exhibitions are occasional, the ambition is to create regular opportunities, but this programme isn’t in place at present. One of the aims of our Membership Scheme is to gather the necessary people and resources to make this happen.

The scheme is designed to link artists together; providing new opportunities, and to provide extra income to West Walls to fund: exhibitions, publicity and professional networking. It will have 2 levels of membership basic and full:
