Charles has recently been honored with an advanced membership level with two prestigious art organizations!
He is now a Signature Member of the American Impressionist Society after meeting their requirements of being juried into two National Exhibitions and two Small Works Exhibitions. During that time he also won a Second Place award for his painting "Amethyst."
A much more formal jurying process with the California Art Club has resulted in Charles being named an Out of State Artist Member on their rolls. The jurying process is tough, involving the submission of multiple images, a bio, and a written statement, and the number of Out of State Artist Members in the organization is kept limited. Being named an Artist Member of the California Art Club now makes him eligible to submit to their Gold Medal Exhibition - the pinnacle of contemporary traditional fine art on the west coast.
