Art Organizations...



There are so many art organizations out there. I've been pondering joining a couple of new ones this year. I can't believe how many there are! My plan right now is to join a new local one, another that could help further my career, and another "local" one for the area we winter in down in Florida. I wish I could sign up for more, but the expense can be too much. One thing about me, if I don't feel that I'm getting anything from my membership, or contributing to the organization, I'll move on. I would love to hear any suggestions from you. I'm a lifetime member of EBSQ, and that won't change, however if you have a recommendation, I would love to hear it!

For this or other paintings available for sale on ebay, click on the link at the above right. "Morning Pinks" will be available after 5/5/2011. Size: 4 x 6 inches, oil on board.

  1. Beautiful painting, Kimberly. Love the reflections in the water and the distant trees. I'm not sure how I missed your "Tennessee's Pride". Beautifully painted as well.

  5. I have researched some too and still haven't come to any decisions. So many sound good. I noticed as the economy got worse...more came out of the woodworks...(-: The numbers are confusing. Thanks for sharing!

  6. I don't know what kind of organizations you are looking for...I joined Fine Art America last July and have tripled the cost of the annual fee in less than six months.
    I've belonged to EBSQ since '04 and plan on staying. I've been fortunate enough to grab an award or two...though I haven't signed up for any shows in quite some time.

  8. Thanks everyone! I applied to Oil Painters of America. However, after seeing the amazing work and artists they have, I don't know if I would even qualify. I'll keep you posted!

  10. Hi Kimberly,
    Thought I'd drop by and take a lookie loo.
    This one looks like a work from Oregon! Misty, quiet, and full of analogous greens, blues and greys...delicious!
    My thought on joining groups is you get what you put into it. I've found that if I don't jump in, I get bored quickly. All groups would love your help to make it better. Have fun with them, give of yourself and learn a little too. :)
