Opportunities — Artist Roster & Creative Communities

Check out the newest page on our website: the artist roster! Here local artists can submit their contact info so that they can be found by fellow artists and those wanting their services. If you know an artist who would like to be included, please have them fill out the form. We’re still figuring out the kinks, so please let us know if you have any recommendations.

ALSO ONLINE is the Creative Communities project, spearheaded by our apprentice Mary Rellergert. Here you can nominate anyone in the community whose creativity deserves recognition. I would argue that it’s hard to find someone who DOESN’T qualify for this recognition in some way. All the same, please submit nominations for this project, or pass the work on to others.
