Membership Application Process

Member selection by a juried process has been developed to maintain excellence in member work and high professional standards of quality art. The CSA Board of Directors accepts national and international applications any time during the year.

Please submit the following items for membership consideration:

  • A biographical résumé (complete contact information, art training, education, background, etc.),
  • An art résumé (exhibitions, juried shows, demonstrations, publications, awards, professional affiliations, etc.),
  • Five or more electronic images of personal work for each applicable medium or the location of the artist’s website,
  • A check for $45.00 made payable to the Chicago Society of Artists. (This check covers the cost of $40.00 for annual dues and a $5.00 initiation fee. If the applicant is not accepted by the jury, the $45.00 will be refunded.)

Submit all of the above to:
