The Signature Artists' Guild is an elite sector of the Society.
Artist members whose work is recognized for consistent excellence.


To achieve Signature Status, the artist member must accrue

6 total points within any consecutive 5 year period. Acceptance in both the

                                             Best of America National Juried Exhibition and Best of America

                                           National Small Works National Juried Exhibition each count for one

                              point. Members who have achieved 1/2 points in the past Small Works shows will

                                  be granted 1 point retroactively for each acceptance toward Signature Status.

Artist members with accumulated points towards Signature status as of the end of 2019 will be 'grandfathered' and allowed to continue accumulating points under the old rules until the end of 2021. In 2022 the 'grandfathered' artists that do not achieve Signature status will move to the new rules (6 points within any consecutive 5 year period). All applicable points will revert to 1 point retroactively for each acceptance toward Signature Status.

The Signature Guild Artists are allowed to use the NOAPS designatory letters after their name or signature as acknowledgement of artistic achievement. We are very proud and we recognize them for their consistent excellence.
