Welcome to the PAW Members website

Applications to exhibit in 2021 will open on the 1st of November 2020 and close on the 31st of December 2020


New Members:

If you are interested in joining Purbeck Art Weeks Festival, please click on the titles below to find out more, or just click the button below to apply.

Members can exhibit at our central exhibition at Rollington, (a great place to dip your toe in the water for the first time, or offer a taster of your work to encourage visitors to your open studio), or hold an Open Studio, (lots of artists also share Open Studios – great for mutual support and to increase the variety of art for visitors).

The visual artists involved in PAW are a real mix of established, emerging and hobby artists of all ages. Many established local artists took their first steps at the Festival. PAW is a great place to start!

If you are interested in supporting PAW, but do not want to exhibit, why not become a Friend?

As well as the opportunity to exhibit, Membership includes:

  • A dedicated Artists Page on our main website
  • Access to this Member's Only Website
  • Membership of our Visual Artists Facebook Group

  • Regular meetings and social get-togethers
  • A supportive, friendly and helpful network
