Member Submissions - Online Galleries & Directory

  • The Membership Directory is an alphabetical directory of all members.  For those who have websites, the name of the artist member contains a hyperlink to their respective website.

  • The Member Gallery presents our members' choice works in a group online gallery in a square format and includes the artist's name, the title of the work and the medium of the work. Images are organized alphabetically by last name.

  • The Featured Artists Gallery contains dedicated online galleries for each artist.  Three works of the artist's choice are presented, including the artist's name, mediums worked in and the artist's statement. The images in these dedicated galleries can be enlarged on the screen to appear in their original proportions. This allows for viewing of all of their beautiful details. Payment of a one-time fee is required for inclusion.
