Pastel Society of the West Coast
PSWC Online Membership Show 2018

2018 Online Membership Show


DEADLINE: March 4, 2018 (11:59 p.m. PST)


There will be $2,650 in awards, including a Best of Show Award of $750 in each category.

Exhibition Details:
This online membership show is so exciting because you can enter your best work without the expense of framing and shipping.  Plus, General members can earn one point toward Signature Status by receiving a place award.  Accepted artists will be showcased on our website: http://www.pswc.ws/, as well as on www.OnlineJuriedShows.com reaching over 40,000 viewers.  The Award winners’ paintings will be shown on our Facebook page and an E-blast will announce the Award winners to all members. There will be a higher probability of acceptance because we will not have the accepted number limitations of a gallery show.

This online show for members only has 2 categories for judging. General members will be judged separately from the Signature/DP members.

We will have Best of Show, 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and Award of Merit for each category. Award of Merit is not considered a place award.

OPEN TO ALL CURRENT MEMBERS OVER THE AGE OF 18 years old. ARTIST'S MEMBERSHIP DUES FOR 2018 MUST BE PAID BY THE DEADLINE – MARCH 4, 2018, IN ORDER FOR ENTRIES TO BE JUDGED. It's easy to become a member by going to http://www.pswc.ws/ and clicking on Membership Info at the top of the home page.
