Maryland Pastel Society membership




In addition to the benefits of Artist membership, Signature members may:

• Exhibit artwork in all MPS Signature Member exhibitions
• Have two images displayed on a Gallery Page on the MPS website
• Be a "Featured Artist" in the MPS quarterly news update
• Serve on the MPS Executive Board

There are two paths to Signature Membership:

1. Automatic:

Artist members of the MPS in good standing are eligible for Signature membership after being accepted into three MPS juried exhibitions, calculated from the MPS's 2011 Shades of Pastel show. Eligibility is granted after being accepted into three separate shows; it is not based on the number of paintings juried into any single show.

Contact us if you meet the above requirements and want to change your membership status to Signature. The difference in yearly dues is $10.00, waived October through December. Contact Us

2. Self nomination:

MPS members in good standing may submit work to be juried. The MPS Executive Board reviews applications for Signature membership at their quarterly meetings. Deadlines for application and board meeting dates are listed on our website Calendar. If accepted, you confirm your Signature status by paying the difference in Artist dues, $10.00, waived October through December. If you have any questions, please Contact Us.
