The Association of Midland Artists comprises professional, semi-professional and aspiring artists, working in all media, and living and working throughout Warwickshire and neighbouring counties. We currently have members who focus on paint, pastel, drawing, collage, print, photography, textiles, ceramics, glass, jewellery, sculpture, and installation. Styles, philosophy, and approach range from realism to abstract, decorative to conceptual, traditional to new media. In addition, we have a small number of supporter members who are not actively practising as artists.
Members share a willingness to support and encourage each other. The aim is always for excellence.
We share our expertise via a programme of talks, workshops exhibitions, craft fairs , art sales and, of course, member pages on this web site, take your work to a wider audience. A Newsletter keeps members up to date with our and each other’s activities.
