"Sailing on the Charles" by Maria Babb

The WSA gives members opportunities to exhibit their work, provides a supportive environment that will stimulate personal creativity, and encourages the sharing of ideas, knowledge and skills. Our community of members come from all over the metro Boston area as well as Cape Cod and the Islands. 

Membership benefits include:

  • group exhibits in community venues including the Wellesley Free Library and Wellesley Community Center;
  • shows judged by professional artists with cash awards given;
  • demonstrations in various media by professional artists;
  • a dedicated page on the WSA website for each Exhibiting Member;
  • the opportunity to become a member of a community of artists.

The Wellesley Society of Artists, Inc. invites new Exhibiting Members in all two-dimensional media through a juried submission process. We also welcome participants who join as Associate Members of the WSA. 

The membership year runs from September 1st through August 30th. 

Information for Exhibiting Member Artist applicants:

The WSA Membership Jury, consisting of a small group of Exhibiting Members, considers potential Exhibiting Members on a rolling basis. We encourage interested artists to contact the Membership Coordinator through the form below. Please note that we are unable to accept walk-in applicants. Applicants may apply once per 12-month period. 

Prospective Exhibiting Members should submit a brief artist’s statement or bio along with 3-4 images of your work with type of medium, titles of the artwork with dimensions without the frame.  The WSA accepts only two–dimensional artwork and does not accept photography, textiles, or metal work.
