The International Society of Acrylic Painters


New Recognition Category!

26-Apr-2017 9:06 PM | Dan Simoneau (Administrator)

A new recognition category was recently added to the International Society of Acrylic Painters to recognize our “Best of the Best”. This category is Signature Master. This recognition program was designed based on the American Watercolor Society’s Dolphin Fellowship and is based on merit.

Signature Master status is achieved when an active signature member has attained 10 points through award recognition in our exhibitions. Any of the Society’s exhibitions juried by a juror of awards is eligible. The points are earned as follows:

Best of Show – 5 points

First Place – 4 points

Second Place – 3 points

Third Place – 2 points

Any other award – 1 point

In some of our earlier exhibitions, some paintings were awarded both Best of Show and First Place. To be fair, these paintings were awarded 5 points for best of show.

As with Signature status, a Signature Master keeps his or her status as long as his or her dues remain current. After a one year lapse in dues, the member loses both Signature Master status and Signature status. Should dues be renewed after losing status, the process of earning Signature status and Signature Master status begins again. As long as the member remains a Signature Master, he or she is allowed to use the title on all correspondence and paintings with either ISAP M or ISAP Master after his or her name.

I'm proud to announce our first class of Signature Master members and their point status through our most recent exhibition, the 8th Annual ISAP International Open Online Exhibition:

Dan Simoneau – 17 points

Barbara Leites – 14 points

Angela Bandurka – 13 points

Gerard Huber – 13 points

Denise Athanas – 12 points

Pat Cairns – 11 points

Vi Gassman – 10 points

Congratulations to all!
