“The Art House is a fantastic environment to make and develop new ideas with an overwhelmingly-welcoming, encouraging and supportive staff team.” (Sophie Mahon, Graduate Residency Programme, Oct 2013)

The Art House provides time, space and support for artists wishing to develop their practice and to develop relationships with their audiences. Our Membership Programme is central to our work, providing visual artists with the resources and support they need to develop their practice.


“I became a member about nine years ago because The Art House was the only inclusive arts organisation I had heard of and provided regular bulletins about exhibitions and other professional opportunities for members.” (Marion Michell, Multi-Media 3D Artist and Art House Member)

We have a diverse membership base, spanning across the UK and overseas. Some – but not all - of our members identify as disabled. If you are a practicing artist and you share our belief that diversity in the arts is fundamental to the creation of artistic and cultural excellence, you can become a member of The Art House. Membership is open to visual artists, throughout their career regardless of artform or educational background.


“Having access to the extra support and mentoring through The Art House has been great” (Duncan Pearson, Artist in Residence, Jan 2014)
