Juried Critiques Rules – 2024

(All art to be submitted is subject to discretion of the SOSA Board.)
(Questions should be addressed to the SOSA president.)

Member critique meetings will be held four times during the calendar year. Six paintings and
one photo will be awarded ribbons at each session by the juror. Approximately 32 total
paintings and photos will be critiqued per session. The juror will decide which to critique if more
than 32 works are submitted.

  • Submission requirements for artwork: Maximum of 2 works per member. The artist will decide 1st choice of painting for the critique, and which will be their 2nd choice if space is available. If the maximum quota of artwork is not made with the first selections, the juror will select from the second choices to ensure that there is an appropriate number of paintings/photographs to critique.
