PATRON MEMBER - Annual Dues: $35, $50, $100, or $500
Patron memberships are for anyone wishing to support the fine arts in Maryland, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and other areas of the mid-Atlantic region. Patrons will receive links to our on-line quarterly news updates and are invited to all meetings and events sponsored by the Maryland Pastel Society. A Patron's generous donation is tax deductible, helps the Maryland Pastel Society's meet its general operating expenses, and helps defray the costs of all the programs the MPS brings to the community, such as workshops, lectures, and exhibitions showcasing soft pastel as a fine art medium.
CORPORATE MEMBER - Annual Dues: $100, $500, or $1,000
Corporations wishing to support the fine arts in Maryland and neighboring regions may also contribute to the Maryland Pastel Society. Corporate sponsors will receive links to our on-line quarterly news updates and are invited to all meetings and events sponsored by the Maryland Pastel Society. We also post a link to the Corporate Sponsor's webpage on our "resources" page. A corporation's generous donation is tax deductible and provides much-needed financial resources to ensure the continuation of major MPS programs like our biennial national juried exhibition, Shades of Pastel, as well as other pastel exhibitions throughout the state of Maryland, northern Virginia, and Washington DC., demonstrations and lectures by local and nationally acclaimed pastel artists, and workshops by nationally acclaimed instructors.
