Acceptance into three PSWC Pastels USA Open Exhibitions qualifies PSWC Members for Signature Status. As of 2008, a place award earned in a PSWC Membership Show may be used as one acceptance toward becoming a Signature Member.
Distinguished Pastelist Status
The Distinguished Pastelist designation is awarded to PSWC full-members who have received three awards within five consecutive PSWC International Open Exhibitions.
Maintaining Signature or DP Status

Support PSWC by becoming a Volunteer!
As we grow, staffing needs change and along with that, Board members' personal lives change, too. In view of this, we are in constant need for volunteers to take over positions or assist the current Board members in their respective duties. Please consider volunteering in this worthy endeavor and help PSWC grow and continue.
It's simple to join PSWC online. Membership Dues are due March 31st of each year. Payment is made through PayPal, but you don't need a PayPal account. Mastercard and Visa are also accepted.
