Why become a Member of PAW?

Members can apply to 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?

  • Access to this Member’s Only Website
