Membership is open to all individuals, 18 years of age or older, that are interested in supporting the goals of the Society.
To help meet those goals, it is essential that everyone volunteer in some way to assist elected board members to accomplish the goals set out in the by-laws.
Members are expected to contribute at least five hours per year to a PWAS activity.
Membership includes eligibility to exhibit in shows and activities including participation in regional shows at which PWAS buys a space. Members may be required to pay a show fee and / or a percentage of sales to PWAS for shows in which they choose to participate.
Members may participate in PWAS sponsored group trips to art shows and various museums and galleries.
Membership offers the opportunity to be involved in Community Outreach Programs that offer you exposure as an artist. This includes shows at local venues such as High Schools, Libraries, etc.
Members are encouraged to attend monthly meetings that offer the opportunity to meet other artists, become involved in the operations of this organization, and enjoy refreshments. Special interest programs are set up frequently to highlight an art technique or skill. Programs may be presented by a PWAS member or by an invited guest artist.
Workshops are held as often as available, frequently on a weekend, to cover skills and techniques in greater depth than is possible at the monthly meetings. The cost for these workshops is kept affordable for members. PWAS non-members are frequently allowed to attend these workshops for a slightly higher fee.
