One of the benefits of being a member in an art association is being able to exhibit work in member shows. Member shows give an artist a chance to exhibit in venues that may not be possible as a solo artist, especially a beginning artist. Also, it is educational and inspirational to see the work of friends and peers. Viewing the variety of styles and subjects at the show is always a joy to experience.
Sometimes awards are granted by a judge to work of merit. One of my recent paintings was awarded an Honorable Mention, "Too Cold to Snow," at the recent Lake Country Pastel Society exhibit.
