Allied Artists West (AAW) is a professional artists’ association based in Santa Clara County. The juried members include nationally recognized and emerging artists who have received wide recognition for their work, winning awards in prestigious national exhibitions. Some of the members are sought after as art teachers and are often called upon to jury art competitions and to demonstrate painting techniques to various art organizations. The works of the artists hang both in homes of private collectors and in corporate collections nationwide representing a diversity of media, methods, and perspectives.

The membership follows a rigorous selection process, requiring nomination by a current member and a presentation of past work to the entire group, who then votes in favor of or against acceptance.
