Signature Members are members who have exhibited a high degree of professionalism and skill. Signature members must supply additional information, and samples of their work to be considered. The jury will meet after enrollment is over. Final decisions are announced at the end of the same month.

$25 application fee
⭐️ Signature Artists will be named on our public Signature Artist Page, with links to their website and instagram.
⭐️ Signature Artists will be profiled on our Social Media pages.
Please note that signature members are juried in and inclusion is not guaranteed. Signature members demonstrate a history of professionalism based on their exhibit history (not limited to galleries), online presence, and the caliber of their work. You will need to submit additional documentation and 5 pieces of work (10 MB max size each). The submitted work does not have to be available, but should have been created in the last 5 years, and be indicative of your current style.
Artwork submitted will be evaluated on its first impression, composition, style, technique, craftsmanship, and cohesiveness as a body of work. Further, traditional and and realist work will be evaluated on accuracy of representation. Contemporary work will be evaluated on appearance of purposeful decision making in composition and color choice. Images should be clear, sharp, and well-lit. Artists working in 3 dimensional media may be asked to submit additional photos, upon review.
Decisions will be announced the last day of the month of enrollment.
