Being elected to Fellowship status is a career milestone and acknowledges work that meets the highest standards of excellence in marine art . The Fellowship oversees all artistic affairs of the American Society of Marine Artists. Fellows are expected to serve the Society and Membership, respecting and enhancing the Society’s mission and the artistic standards of excellence the Fellowship represents.

With the honor of Fellowship comes an obligation to your peers and the ASMA:

  • Fellows are asked to jury the annual portfolio review held in the spring of each year. The selection process may be completed online or in person. Attendance is not formally required, but attending Fellows provide vital aesthetic observations that enrich the experience. This exchange of ideas between artists is written into the charter of the American Society of Marine Artists and is part of what keeps the Fellowship and the Society alive. This meeting is typically held in the Northeast.              
  • Fellows are required to submit one work to every ASMA National Exhibition.                                              
  • Fellows are asked to participate in sharing their personal observations and techniques with the membership via articles to be published in the ASMA News and Journal.                                                  
  • Fellows are encouraged to share their methods and materials at our National Marine Art Conferences via round tables, demonstrations, and presentations.                                                                            
  • Fellows are expected to learn the working mechanics of the Fellowship and the Society, with the expectation that they will serve one term on the Fellow’s Management Committee.

By submitting your portfolio, you have read and understand your prospective responsibilities and the expectations of the Fellows and the Society.

Should you reconsider having your portfolio reviewed; all fees will be refunded to you if request prior to 3/10/22.

Fellowship dues are $125 for 2022. If elected, you will be expected to pay the difference between your current dues and your new status for the year within 30 days.

Sincerest wishes,

Fellow Management Committee/ASMA
