Some of the listings can be either a workshop or a lecture to large or small groups. Photo in Gallery Section. Have suitcase packed and love to travel!

Lectures

If you want to submit your work to Juried exhibits, Judged exhibits here are a few clues. Why didn’t my work get selected for the exhibit? What was the criteria for selecting the work?
