You are cordially invited to become a Sustaining Associate Member of the American Watercolor Society. The Society is a nonprofit organization and dues are tax-deductible.

We are now accepting memberships for the 2022-23 Season, which runs October 1, 2022 – September 30, 2023. Membership begins immediately upon signup, regardless of time of year.  Those who join in advance of October 1 will receive the advance weeks or months as  “bonus” months of membership. Joining will entitle you to the Member’s reduced entry fee for our 156th Annual Exhibition. Annual dues remain at $50 US per year. (See next paragraph for foreign members)

Benefits of Sustaining Associate Membership include notices of AWS activities, the twice annual Newsletter, Exhibition Prospectus, Catalog of the Annual Exhibition (where you will be listed as an Associate Member), a reduced entry fee for exhibition submission and invitations to the Opening Reception and Annual Dinner. Because of the high cost of postage outside the United States, foreign applicants should include the following amount in addition to the $50 membership fee to cover postage costs: Canada $10.00, Mexico $14.50, all others $15.00.

Only Signature Members attend the Annual Business Meeting and use the AWS initial after their signature.

In addition to the Annual Exhibition,  Associate Members can submit to the yearly Online Associate Members Exhibition, a show open to Associate members only.

Sustaining Associate Members whose dues have lapsed may renew by completing and submitting the Sustaining Associate Application Form.
