How to join Aberdeen Artists Society

Membership of the Society is open to artists resident both within and outwith the Northeast of Scotland. It’s on a rolling basis so your membership is valid for a year from the date you join. Besides being a member of a widely recognised independent art society, other member benefits include a discounted members submission rate for shows and a reduction in commission on sale of works from an AAS exhibition. The Society also aims to mount Members-only exhibitions at reduced submissions rates.

Ordinary Membership

In addition to the membership benefits noted above, Members can create their own gallery and artist profile in a dedicated area of the AAS website. Members may also use AAS Facebook, Instagram and Twitter accounts to publicise their own work and exhibitions.

Student Membership

The Society encourages Student Membership. This has the same benefits as Ordinary membership but at a reduced membership fee. To qualify, a student must show a valid and up to date student card when paying their membership fees.

Honorary Membership

Honorary Members are artists and others who have made a significant contribution to art, having been recommended for membership by the Council of the Society.

Honorary Members pay no fees or subscriptions to the Society.


Ordinary membership costs just  £30 per year

Student membership costs just £15 per year

Honorary membership (available by election only – see above) has no fees
