How to become a Juried-Artist-Member:

After 6 months of General Artist Membership, artists may apply to become a Juried Artist Member by submitting 5 original and recent works of art for judging by a jury of 3 current juried members. The next panel is Tuesday- November 17, 2020 and work must be collected on Wednesday, November 18th - see application below for complete details.

Download the Juried Artist Member Application then call the gallery at 401-294-6840 to reserve your space.  Membership dues must be up to date as of May 1, 2020 and current for 2020-2021 by the November 17, 2020 jury panel.

Note: General Artist Members should not pay for a JAM until notified by WAA that the jury panel has accepted you.  If you are unsure of your status, please contact WAA before renewing.


Photo-Arts Group:

Membership into the Photographic Arts Group is included at no extra cost for ALL members.

The Photographic Arts Group seeks to help members achieve their potential in film and digital photography. We encourage sharing photographs for discussion and critique to help one another achieve that potential.  Guests are occasionally invited to present to the group; technical and other aspects of photography are discussed as well. In the summer, the group travels to photo shoots around the state.

All levels of experience are welcome.  The group meets the second and fourth Mondays of each month at the Wickford Art Association's Gallery at 7:00 p.m.  For more information please e-mail waaphotoartsgroup@gmail.com.
