    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.

    As many of you are aware, we lost our dear friend Fran Marze recently. Fran was an extremely prolific painter and her family has decided to donate the bulk of her work to McMurray Art League and the Pittsburgh Pastel Artists League as a fundraiser. So save the date to join Fran's friends in celebrating her life and her art. We will have an exhibit, sale, and reception Saturday, September 17, 2-6 PM, at the McMurray Art League studio.

    Fran was a member of many groups and had lots of friends. Please spread the word about this event in her honor.

    You can register to get a reminder email.
