Artist Membership

We encourage artists to apply for Artist Membership. We work to actively promote new artist members. Those who become artist members of the Society can submit their work at regular selected exhibitions, and have the opportunity to submit works to sell in our shop (subject to OAS evaluation). They will also be able to assess their work in comparison with others more objectively.

Artist Selection now takes place throughout the year and with new application forms, you can do it all from home and online. We are accepting a more diverse range of art, including paintings, works on paper, sculpture, ceramics, and jewellery. We now accept photography and digitally produced works.

Artist Members receive:

Free entry into the Otago Art Society’s major sponsored exhibitions.

Opportunity to submit work to be sold in the shop (subject to evaluation).

Promotion of you as a new artist member.
