We invite you to join or renew your membership to CMPS. There are two types of membership: one for artists ("Artist Members"), and one for members of the public who are not artists but wish to support and learn more about work in pastel ("Supporting Members"). Membership offers many benefits:

For Artist Members

  • Discounted entry fees to our open exhibitions: our Marks of Distinction National Exhibition, Pastels Plus International Exhibition, and others we may sponsor from time to time 
  • An inclusive, low-entry-fee Members-only exhibit, juried for prizes only, for both advanced and developing artists
  • Discounted registration fees for in-person and online workshops
  • Members-only perks, including:
    • free demos
    • free artist talks
    • drawings for free materials
    • featured artist and directory visibility
    • quarterly newsletter to share news and events
    • a members-only webpage with technique videos, tips, artist interviews, and other insider information
    • in-person and virtual social and painting get-togethers
    • member discussion forums, polls, and non-show get-togethers

For Supporting Members

  • Free demos
  • Free artist talks
  • Quarterly newsletter with information about CMPS artists and events that are sponsored by  CMPS, such as our national show, or by member artists, including special events such as holiday and solo shows, gallery receptions, or book signings

Membership is for the calendar year beginning January 1 and ending December 31, regardless of the date of payment.
