Join As An Artist

Are you interested in becoming a member of Steyning Arts? it means you:

– Will be invited to take part in Steyning Arts events, including our annual Art Trail and annual Christmas Gift Fair and Art Exhibition, occasional exhibitions and our Artist Professional Support Network meet ups.
– Can have a personal page where your work will be displayed on the Steyning Arts website.
– Will be eligible to participate in Members meeting, surveys and vote in Annual and Extraordinary General Meetings.

Steyning Arts runs entirely on volunteer power, so we expect members to share the work involved in organising exhibitions and events, and in keeping the organisation running smoothly.

The normal membership fee is £15 per calendar year. For new members, and those whose membership has lapsed, there is an additional joining fee of £10 to cover admin costs. So £25 in total in the first year, then £15 per year thereafter.  Fees for participating in specific exhibitions, trails and events are extra.

Payment instructions are provided below, and full details of membership terms and conditions are provided in the Steyning Arts Consititution.

We limit the membership numbers of Steyning Arts to ensure that we are able to offer space to all our artists wishing to exhibit at any of our events.

Our New Members Panel sits twice a year to consider applications, subject to capacity.

Deadlines for applying are 10th January & 10th August each year.

Notes for new members:

Our annual Art Trail usually comprises 22 – 24 venues including members own homes/studios and approximately 3 communal venues in and around Steyning.

If you would like to proceed and get involved in our other on-going events and feature on our website, please fill in the application form including 6 images of your work. These will be reviewed by the Selection Panel as part of the application process.

Sending Photos of your Work

This website is an important way of publicising the Group and its talented members. We can accept up to 6 photographs per artist. New members are asked to submit photos of their work as part of the application process.  Members can update some or all of your images once a year. Note that images you submit may be used for posters, flyers, social media and other marketing purposes.

When sending images make sure you name your image files clearly, with your name and an image number (e.g. JosieBloggs001, JosieBloggs002, etc.) Images need to be re-sized for use on the website with a resolution of 72dpi and a size of 1200pixels along the longest length.

Steyning Arts has prepared some useful, downloadable notes on how to photograph your work. Or you can contact Frank Bull if you would like your work photographed by a professional.

Any other queries regarding your page on the website, should be addressed to Martin Tome our website editor at
