SAOS is a membership scheme open to any artist or maker based in Surrey or in the bordering counties. You do not need your own studio to be a member and many artists work and exhibit in pairs or small groups. The annual membership fee of £45 gives the following benefits:

  • your own webpage on our website with up to 12 images of your work
  • being part of a searchable database of artists; ‘Find A Surrey Artist’
  • a monthly newsletter with details of all our events and other regional and national opportunities for artists
  • opportunities for training
  • support from the SAOS coordinator in promoting your studio
  • opportunities to take part in Summer Open Studios and our online shop (note that participants will be required to pay an additional registration fee)

All members are asked to renew their membership on November 1st each year. (If you join for the first time after May 1st, you will not be asked to renew until November of the following year.)
