Active Member Status is open to current Associate Artist Members of WAAM

A WAAM Associate Artist who wishes to attain Active Member status by applying online must submit 6 jpgs representing a body of work with a consistent point of view. Work will be reviewed by three jurors who are not affiliated with the WAAM.
Jurors are instructed to consider the competency of the artist applicants within their chosen genres rather than making curatorial judgments based on the juror's personal tastes. The process is not that of selecting an artist for a curated show but rather a professional evaluation that the artist is skilled at his or her way of making art.  

Jurors for 2018:
Sneha Kapadia formerly owner and director of the Woodstock Framing Gallery.
Robert Langdon, gallery director Emerge Gallery
Alison Constant, gallery director Art Bar

October applications are due by end of day Monday, October 22. Artists will be notified of juror decisions on Thursday, October 25 by e-mail.

There are also three other ways to become an Active Member. For detailed information click here.
