Our 2017 May Members Exhibition takes place from Tuesday 16th May – Wednesday 31st May, 2017. Many artists have never had an opportunity to showcase their work, which is an objective of our member’s exhibition i.e. to provide exposure, build confidence and develop creativity.
This is a themed and juried exhibition. Please see the submission call here.
We will now carry out the jurying process digitally, thus eliminating the cost to you of framing and submission fees upfront. The framing cost and submission fees only apply after your artwork has been juried in.

Board of Directors
The Art Society of Trinidad and Tobago is pleased to present its annual November Members’ Exhibition, titled ‘Seeds For A Sustainable Future’. The opening night reception takes place on Friday 4th November at 7:00pm.
In the 1960’s, when the Art Society was newly formed, many of our artists were commissioned to help plant the seeds of nationhood. T&T was a new independent country and the Art Society worked hand in hand with the government and with game changers to foster national pride in who we were and who we could become. Their artwork captured the best of our beautiful land, our traditions, our religions, our habits, and celebrated our potential as a new nation.
Today, seven decades later, the tools we use to capture the world around us, have changed. With smart phones, digital cameras, video and social media accessible to many, as opposed to a few, fine art as a platform for creating awareness and driving social change, is channeled less often now, than in times past.
With this is mind, for this year’s annual exhibition, we challenged our artists to become a creative part of the UN’s International Year of Pulses. In many countries (including T&T) consumer, food industry members, and governments have little knowledge of pulses, their attributes, or their ability to contribute to the solution of many food related issues facing the world today. “Seeds For a Sustainable Future” is a way to highlight the nutritional benefits of the little beans we can produce here in T&T, and act for a healthy, hunger-free and sustainable world.
‘Seeds For A Sustainable Future’ will run until Friday 18th November, 2016 and a special invitation is extended to students attending primary, secondary and tertiary institutions. Admission is free. For more information, call 622-9827 or visit our website: www.artsocietytt.org
