Photo Editing Workshop how to take photos, edit them and prepare them for our Artists page on the website, for shows and for contests you may want to enter.
Learn BEST Practices of artists. Hear from some of the most experienced artists and enter the panel discussion led by David Honneus. Or join the Guild in watching the creative process of one of our fine artists. You will get to see them working for about an hour and explaining why they do what they do. You will be able to ask questions. Since our artists work in a variety of media, over time, you will be exposed to a large number of processes and approaches. The program may be a simplified “how to do” something or it may be a broader demonstration of how to start something, how to finish something, how to fix something or how to proceed when they are stuck. This program is usually held on Tuesdays at 3pm but it can be pre recorded and shown another time upon request.
Topics of Best Practices we have held:
How to Have Your Own Show
How to Price your Work
How to apply for a Residency
How to Market your Work
How to take Credit Cards

Art Talk by Karen Dolmanisth and Leslie Alfin for the show Mosaic at 3-4pm on Zoom.
Tuesday, August 2, 2022
Meeting ID: 842 9410 6011
To see details about the show Mosaic Click Here
MOSAIC is an exhibit that ties together Alfin's chaotic, colorful and noisy pieces with Dolmanisth's quiet, serene, and meditative work through each artists process of identifying, selecting, and combining bits and pieces of experiential material harvested from the depths of the internet in Alfin's case or the depths of introspection in the case of Dolmanisth. In this way, the coming together of the work creates a powerful dialogue that is paradoxically both chaotic and serene.
Join us to meet the artists and view Karen Dolmanisth's opening night performance.
