    Following are rough guidelines board members follow in evaluating submissions. These are based on generally accepted guidelines for judging art.

    CONSISTENCY: The most decisive factor in judging a candidate for membership is the artist’s ability to speak with a recognizable voice through their work. Consistency in style and medium allows an artist to showcase their talents in the particular area in which they are most accomplished.

    VISUAL INTEREST: Visual interest is evaluated by looking at the strength of the work based on the elements and principles of art and design.

    CONTENT: The work is examined with an eye towards originality, expression and meaning.

    CRAFTSMANSHIP: Craftsmanship is rated according to the skill and degree of quality in the work and presentation.
