The object of the Watercolor & Graphic Arts Society of Mobile (WGAS) is to create more interest in the media of watercolor and graphic arts, and to promote finer watercolor and graphic arts exhibitions by Alabama artists. We are a non-profit organization.
MEMBERSHIP: To be eligible for membership, a person must be living in Mobile or vicinity and must be duly invited by two Active Members as a guest exhibitor at an upcoming Exhibition. A majority of the Members of the Society present and voting at the Exhibition reception will select the new members by secret ballot.
ANNUAL DUES: Dues are payable each year by June 1. The WGAS membership year covers the period of June 1 through May 31 of the following year. To participate in exhibitions, vote, or propose new Members, dues must be current, including any past due amounts.
Any member delinquent for two years shall be automatically dropped from the roster on due notice. A member who has been dropped for non-payment of dues may be reinstated by paying two years of back dues, as well as the dues for the current year.
