Application Requirements


All work must be original paintings, hand created, entirely the work of the entrant, and free from any copyright infringement. Works must be watermedia paintings on natural or synthetic paper, no canvas. Your source material must be your own design or your own photograph. No class or workshop paintings.

Entries must have been completed within the past 3 years (after Jan. 2021) and NOT previously accepted in any PWS Exhibition, including the online PWS Members Show.


Take the best photo of your painting – cropped to show ONLY the painting without mat or frame.

File Dimensions: Size your JPEG or JPG to be at least 1200 pixels on the longest side. 
File Size: Max 5 MB.


Paintings may be for sale or not for sale. If someone expresses an interest in buying a painting displayed in the Members Online Show, PWS will contact the artist who will be given the prospective buyer’s contact information.  It will be up to the individual artist to pursue and finalize the prospective sale.   PWS will charge no commission if a sale is made.  If a sale is made, PWS must be notified so the painting can be marked as sold on the website.
