Artists who have been accepted for membership under a juried process. All artists who wish to apply as a Juried Artist Member must first hold membership status in one of the other categories of membership. Juried Artist Members are entitled to display their art at Summit Art venues and events. New members will be juried in quarterly, based on artistic merit in a process administered by a Jury Committee appointed by the President. Annual dues are pro-rated based on the new member jury dates. Summit Art retains a commission on art sales.
Summit Art is in the process of converting to an online jury process that we hope to have operational for the August jury session. Please check back in early August for more information.
