This is a juried & curated site. All artists appear with their permission. Each artist presents artwork of high quality in their own distinct personal voice. You will find emerging artists, mid-career and artists at the upper end of very distinguished careers. Many are highly regarded in their chosen fields of specialty.

While some do not wish to be defined only as figurative artists, the love for the human form is what unites them on this site.
