Signature Member and Cardinal Fellow Points
Signature membership and Cardinal Fellowship are earned by accumulating “points.” The point system is explained in the Membership section of the Watercolor Society of Indiana By-laws, Article I, Sections 1-3. Article I. Membership Levels.
Signature Member: “WSI” following your name designates that you are a Signature Member. To become a Signature Member, your work must be accepted into two juried exhibits. Signature Members will be recognized in the Annual Juried Exhibition Catalog and in the Directory.
Cardinal Fellow: “CF” following your name designates that you have accumulated the 20 points required in the By-laws; these points may be a combination of “Artistic” and “Service” points. However, at least 10 of the 20 must come from being accepted into and/or winning awards in our Juried Exhibit. These are “Artistic” points.
“Artistic points” are earned by having a painting accepted for the WSI annual juried exhibit (1 point). Additional artistic points are awarded for Merit Awards (1 point) and the First Prize, “Wilbur Meese Memorial Award” Award (3 points). Points are not awarded for Honorable Mention.
