Members who are accepted for membership are required to pay annual dues of $48.00.

Qualifications considered for membership include the applicant's dedication to artistic standards of excellence, professionalism, accomplishments, skills that benefit the Society and the artist's future potential. Applicants submit three pieces of artwork representing current media and style, created in the past two years. Artwork submitted is judged by presentation, talent and originality.

Please note that the jurying process is solely for the purpose of screening candidates for potential membership to PSA and is not a formal portfolio review nor a written critique. From time to time, however, we do have Portfolio Reviews and invite artists to participate. Please check "In the News" on our Home Page regularly for events, or join our mailing list (also on the Home page).
