Signature Membership Application

Applicants for Signature membership are required to submit digital images of their work.  These images are reviewed by the Jury of Selection. Applicants must receive a two-thirds majority vote of the Jury for admission to Signature Membership.  The sole criteria for membership is the quality of the work shown in the images presented.  The applicant is expected to demonstrate a high level of skill as a painter and specifically in the use of the watercolor medium throughout all of the images presented for review.  Generally the Juries are conducted in September and May.

Annual dues are $40.00.  There is no charge for submitting an application and dues are not collected until after acceptance as a Signature Member.  Signature Members are allowed to enter all shows sponsored by the Society and sign “CNYWS” after their name when they sign their work.  They receive the Newsletter twice a year either online or pay for postal and are encouraged to serve on committees, the Board of Directors and as Officers of the Society.
