Joining Us

Who can join Horsham Artists?

Anyone who lives and/or creates their work in the Horsham area and who, whether or not they sell their work, would describe themselves as an artist in the very broadest sense.

We define the Horsham area as a rough square with Rusper and Faygate in the top-right (North-east) corner, Rudgwick in the top-left (North-west) corner, Amberley in the bottom-left (South-west) corner and Small Dole and Steyning in the lower-right (South-east) corner.

Members must be over eighteen years of age.

We welcome both experienced practitioners and people who are just starting to explore their chosen medium. We do not operate any sort of interview or portfolio presentation process

What does it cost?

There is a one-off joining fee of £20.00 and an annual subscription that from January 2022 will stand at £20.00. The membership year runs from January 1st to December 31st

Membership entitles the member:

  • to participate in the Art Trail, Art Fair and any other Horsham Artists exhibitions and/or events. However, where there is a space restriction places will be offered on a first-come-first-served basis at the registration stage. As such, membership does not guarantee automatic participation in every event.
  • to feature on all Horsham Artists social media outlets including a dedicated page on the website
  • to attend all Horsham Artists social events
  • attend and vote at Horsham Artists meetings

 What Happens After I’ve Applied?

  • Once you have been accepted as a member, you’ll receive a welcoming email from Susan Tindall who is part of the Membership and Learning Events team. You will also receive information about setting up your page on the Horsham Artists website by sending your material to the Site Manager who will post it on the site. If you are able to come along to the meeting following your joining, either Susan or Mark Wilson (current Chair) will welcome you before the meeting begins.
