Your membership works directly to bring local artists, community members, business owners, and the broader public together to increase our community's social and economic vitality. Your membership also connects you to a community of artists.

Your membership helps support Art-A-Whirl® (AAW), The Fall Fine Arts Show, and the NEMAA Artist Directory and Guide. Plus, it entitles you to year-round benefits (see options below) and eligibility to participate in exclusive members-only events and opportunities.

How does membership work?

New and renewing members who join or renew in November or December will have their membership rolled over through the following year. Members must join by February 1 to be included in the printed Artist Directory and Art-A-Whirl map.
