The Color and Light Society of Southern Maryland is a group of visual artists from Calvert, St. Mary's and Charles County who are dedicated to artistic development and the creation of original works of art. We welcome any fine artist interested in contributing to this mission. We hope to provide an ongoing opportunity for growth and development through education, critiques, interaction with other art groups, and the community. The Color and Light Society's goal is to foster community involvement in the arts and provide a venue for showing and selling original art to the public.
A. There are two types of membership: Full (limited to 30) and Associate (limited to 15).
Associate Members pay an annual fee of $30, attend business meetings, activities, volunteer and contribute to the well-being of the organization. They do not exhibit their artwork with Color and Light until they are full members. To become Full Members an Associate will present 5 pieces of their art to the Show Ready Committee which will determine if the work meets the criteria for Color and Light. Upon approval the Associate will pay an additional $40 to become a Full Member, if the limit of 30 (thirty) has not been reached. Please note that all members are accepted at the Associate level only.
Full Members pay the annual $70, attend business meetings, activities, volunteer and contribute to the well-being of the organization, and may exhibit their artwork at shows and events in which Color and Light participates. Full Members may become Associate Members due to personal circumstances. (No refunds)
B. Requirements: To be in good standing a member must be from Southern Maryland and, whether Full or Associate, must have dues current, attend at least 2 business meetings and attend at least 2 other activities sponsored by the group. They must volunteer and contribute to the well-being of the organization.
