artistic and craftsman-like quality. We specifically wish to avoid the “swap meet” label. We expect courteous and

with the board and fellow members.
To this end:

standing and can result in immediate expulsion as deemed by the Board.

There will be a monthly screen of exhibits in order to maintain the standard of work being shown and to discover and
correct deviations from the rules. When work quality falls below the standards expected, individual re-jurying may be
required. The Board reserves the right to see original work or preparatory materials when reproductions are
