The NWS Newsletter is published 3 times a year. It includes announcements, a calendar for upcoming NWS exhibits, and images of the winning entries from recent exhibits. We also highlight the achievements of our talented members. Please note that we are not looking for workshop announcements or show openings, but rather, information that would be of interest to the society as a whole. Thank you!
If you have any newsworthy items, please download the most current newsletter for the guidelines (or read them below) and send them to for inclusion into our next edition. (Items that do not conform to guidelines will not be published. Similarly, long items will be edited.)


We are so proud that our members achieve so many accolades and therefore we are limited to what can be included in the newsletter.
We print:

  • Awards (only from National or International exhibits open to all artists. No “members only” shows. Indicate the award[s] you received.)
  • Recent publications that include your work
  • Special honors (i.e., Signature membership to national art groups; serving as Juror; having work added to permanent collections, etc.)
  • Inclusion in invitational, solo or two-artist exhibitions

We do not print:
  • Your workshops or websites
  • Your inclusion into exhibits (unless you get an award in an exhibit open nationally to all artists)
  • Items over 6 months old

Submitted material will be edited if it does not conform   to the above criteria OR in order to fit space available.


Indicate your member status (Signature or Associate)
Kudos: Format your submission in the 3rd person, using the Kudos section in the most recent newsletter as a guide. Please be specific about titles and dates.
Articles: Articles will be reviewed for content and relevancy. NWS reserves the right to accept or reject your article, and to edit its contents to fit.
In Memoriam: NWS will publish 1 submitted photo, space permitting.
Call for Entries: Your submission dates must fall within the month after our submission deadlines below.
We appreciate the effort of a personal email of your achievements instead of your monthly newsletter. Monthly newsletters unfortunately end up in our spam mailbox!
