What membership provides

Membership provides the opportunity to participate in ASMA exhibitions, events and activities, to have a gallery entry on our website, receive our regular Newsletter and join the Internet Chat Room between members.

ASMA Membership categories

The society has three levels of membership: Fellows, Exhibiting members and Members.

  • Fellowship is conferred on those members who have attained exceptional standards in marine art and marine knowledge, and is elected by vote of their peers.
  • Exhibiting Membership is the category the majority of our members fall into and is conferred on members whose work meets the Society’s standards. These members are currently practicing artists who wish to take advantage of a professional organization, which supports a community of specialized interests. Exhibiting Members may enter the Society’s exhibitions. Exhibiting members may use ASMA after their name.
  • Membership is for those artists who are working towards greater knowledge and competency or who are aspiring marine artists and wish to improve their standard. Members may enter the Society’s exhibitions; works are subject to scrutiny by a Selection Committee. A Member may indicate/publish that they are a member of the ASMA but may not use ASMA after their name. We also invite as members people who are keenly interested in marine and maritime matters but are not necessarily practising artists.  This offers a forum to historians, other maritime organisations, persons with marine background or careers in the naval or merchant marine, watermen, yachtsmen and those who are keen to further marine art.  Here one can use the resources of the Society to tap into a a wealth of experience, knowledge and artistic expertise.
