There are two levels of Membership – Full Members and Friends.

Full Members are those enthusiastic committed artists who are actively producing new work of a consistently good standard on a regular basis. They are often involved in a variety of art activities such as exhibitions both locally and nationally.

Full Members are elected to this level through a process of adjudication by a panel of SSA Members which takes place usually twice a year.

Friends are those who are enthusiastic and enjoy an involvement in art.

The SSA has a Management Committee who look after the day to day running of the Society. The committee welcomes new applications for both Members and Friends.
