Associate Membership

£20 per year

We invite our friends and supporters to join the SSA as Associate Members. We have always been proud to extend SSA membership to curators, art historians, gallerists, educators and anyone else with an interest in contemporary art who wants to support our work. Our Associate Members have been an important and valued part of the Society since it was founded in 1891, and they now enjoy many of the benefits that are extended to our artists.
