Elected Membership Applications

Elected Membership Applications

The NSS Membership Committee reviews all applications for Elected Sculptor membership. Applications recommended by the committee will be voted on by the entire voting membership.

The applicant is encouraged to submit the focus of their work rather than the range of their work. Commercial success and public placements are not a requirement.

The applicant should submit only their best work, quality over quantity. Work done in workshops or instructional settings should not be submitted. Works in clay and wax are permitted but completed works should be included. Fired clay, plaster, stone, wood, steel, bronze, resin and other permanent materials are considered complete.

The sculpture should be photographed against a contrasting, non‐distracting background, the camera should be on a tripod, lighting should enhance the form and not flatten it. If you would like some tips from a professional on how to photograph sculpture, check out the NSS Connections from Andy Lay Photography on YouTube.

Deadline: March 20, 2023

Submit: Online at Entry‐Thingy

Submission Materials:
Images of up to 15 works of sculpture (up to 3 views each – 45 images total).
A resume (part of My Profile in Entry-Thingy)
No submission fee

All Associate membership benefits, plus the opportunity to serve on various committees within the NSS, voting rights in the NSS and placement of your images and biographical information in our archives.
