TVAA Membership Application


Signature Members

Becoming a Signature Member is an honor worthy of the time and dedication involved in reaching this goal. Upon obtaining Signature status, works of the members are included in exclusive Signature Member Exhibitions, and those members are entitled the use of the letters “TVAA” after their name to signify their achievement.

To qualify, an artist must be an active member and be chosen to show in five juried TVAA exhibitions. Each show, regardless of the number of entries per show, counts as one credit. This does not include curated gallery shows or exhibitions.

Signature status may take several years to accomplish. Certificates of Accomplishment are presented every year at the Citation Exhibition held in the Fall.
