Signature members submitting for Fellowship consideration acknowledge the following requirements for becoming a Fellow:
The Fellowship oversees all artistic affairs of the American Society of Marine Artists. Each artist should respect and enhance the goals of the Society and the artistic standards of excellence that the Fellowship represents. With the honor of Fellowship comes an obligation to your peers and the Society. Each new Fellow is asked to actively engage in Fellowship activities, such as the annual jury session held in the spring of each year. It is one of the most important duties that the Fellowship performs. We currently use a dual method for the selection process, which allows jurying to be completed online or in person.
There is no formal requirement to attend the portfolio review in person each year, but it should be noted that all Fellows give personal input to the discussions, which enriches the experience for everyone. It is a significant part of what keeps the Fellowship and Society working and operating smoothly. Additionally, each Fellow may be called upon to submit an article regarding their personal artistic techniques that will be published in the ASMA News and Journal.
Members submitting for Fellowship should do so with the understanding that if elected, he or she will be expected to learn the working mechanics of the Fellowship, with anticipation of serving one term on the Fellow Management Committee.
By submitting this portfolio, you have read and understand there are expectations. If you have any questions before applying, please contact the current ASMA Managing Fellow, which can be found in any current issue of the ASMA News and Journal, or online at the ASMA website. After submitting your application, the Managing Fellow will send a separate Letter of Expectations to each submitting candidate to review.
Should you reconsider having your portfolio reviewed, all fees will be refunded if requested, provided it is within seven days after the closing date, before any submissions have been formally reviewed by the Fellows.
