Become an Artist Member

Thank you for your interest in joining the Pasadena Society of Artists.

Our new member screenings are held twice a year. To get on the notification list for a reminder and receive more information closer to the date, please click on the “PSA Membership Inquiry Form” (in the text below, and/or on the left menu) and submit your info.

Submissions: Week of April 18 – 23
Jurying: April 24 - 28

Our Spring New Member Screening will be a virtual event where you can submit your artwork online. We will have from Sunday, April 18 to Friday, April 23rd to accept submissions. 

Because this is an online submission, we are asking for 4 pieces of artwork. For artists whose work is 3-D, you are allowed to submit more images to show the details as needed. Digital images must be JPG's, high resolution file, minimum of 1000 pixels or 7 inches on longest side. For your photos, use good lighting, crop images to the artwork, or if sculpture, plain backgrounds are important.

Also, there is a $15 submission fee and you will need an Artist Bio and an Artwork Statement reflecting the body of work you are submitting. More details for the procedure and requirements will be sent to you nearer to that date.

Thank you and we look forward to seeing your work.

To RSVP and if you have any questions, please email me at
