Why do I need to pay membership and how is it used?

We are proud to be able to share the work of our represented painters, photographers and sculptors with our clients and visitors and when you take the work of these artists home you support both us and them. However,

Since our opening in 2016 Messums has undertaken some extraordinary non-commercial exhibitions and events that have showcased the work of some emerging and established artists. From the light installations of Bruce Munro to the re-creation of Elisabeth Frink’s studio within the barn itself your membership will be supporting a programme of unforgettable talent and events.

It is important to us that we continue to nurture our emerging talents and to take on creative endeavours with the support of our visitors. As a member you are participating in the growth of these artists and will be able to engage in their output. From free visits for schools to residencies and large scale installations in the barn your membership will be helping to bring creativity to the southwest.
