All artists appear with their permission on this juried & curated site. Each artist presents artwork of high quality in their own distinct personal voice. We feature emerging artists, mid-career and artists at the upper end of very distinguished careers, many 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.
