Got Art??

Do you have artwork that you'd like to share with CPSA and the art world? We have two wonderful opportunities for you to do just that. Check out the two current exhibit opportunities at CPSA:

Fall ArtSpectations

We did it! CPSA is introducing a new online competition called ArtSpectations. This show is open to all CPSA members with separate categories for signature and non-signature members. Each category will have its own Best of Show and Honorable Mention awards. Artwork may be either 100% colored pencil or predominantly colored pencil.

The Fall ArtSpectations opened for entries on September 5th. Members may enter up to five colored pencil works for just $10 each. The awards juror this time will be Jeff George, CPSA, a 10-yr merit award honoree. Winners will be posted on the CPSA website ( no later than November 16th. 

To enter, go to and check out the eligibility rules and how the entry system works. You can view all the art submissions from the Welcome page or by clicking on “Submissions” on the upper left black bar at the competition site.

We hope you will support this new competition.  If it does well this fall and next spring, we will continue the project, which is a result of the request of many of our members to have a competition/exhibition just for them.

Explore This! 10 

Our annual online exhibition, ET! 10, will open for entries by members and non-members on
September 15th.  

The prospectus is currently available at our website under the Shows/Events tab.  This exhibition is for colored pencil work combined with at least one other medium. Colored pencil must be the predominant medium.  We encourage your most creative ideas for this exhibition.

Explore This! is one of two competitions that CPSA hosts where you can earn signature status.  If you are a CPSA member and your art is accepted and appears in three ET! exhibitions within ten years you can earn your CPX signature status.   

Watch this blog for more information on ET! 10 later this week and in the mean time, you can review the prospectus at:
