About the Show

If you are an active PWCS member, the Members Show is an opportunity to showcase your work. It is also a chance to compete for cash awards and sell your work. Please note that this is an online show. There will be no physical exhibition of the works included in the show.

All work must be original and on paper. PWCS is one of the few art societies that accepts “Works on Paper” to include water media, drawings, pastel, charcoal, graphite, acrylic, gouache, colored pencil, pen/ink and hand-pulled prints.

Members may submit up to two entries. These must have been completed within the last three years, and not have been done under teacher supervision. All works must be original, not based on another artist’s work, on published material, or on another's photograph.

All works that meet the membership and entry requirements will be displayed. They'll also be considered for cash awards:

  • 1st Place - $500
  • 2nd Place - $300
  • 3rd Place - $200
  • 5 Awards of Merit - $100
  • 5 Honorable Mentions - $50

For more information about eligibility, submissions, and other details is available in the prospectus.
