The Woodstock Artists Association & Museum was founded in 1919 by artists with the mission of providing a community of support and a space of “free and equal expression” for the arts. Whether you are an artist or art appreciator, you will find the WAAM offers a diverse and dynamic series of programs, events and exhibitions that engage, inspire and educate. Our membership is our most valued asset. You provide meaningful support to the work of the WAAM which for past 100 years has served as a vital cultural resource in the Hudson Valley/Catskill Region.

*Please note that artists must live within a 50 mile radius of Woodstock to exhibit.
