WHERE LOCAL ARTISTS CAN COLLABORATE WITH OTHERS
Anyone Can Join!

|We are going to offer our member artists a page on our TAG web site, www.tiffinartguild.org. Here is how to do it:
1. Submit three or four digital photos of pieces of your artwork. They must be saved at 72 dpi (dots per inch), roughly 8 inches wide and of a similar height, saved in .JPG format.
2. Send them to firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and "WEB ART PICS" in the subject line... or burn them on a CD and leave them in Jon's 'inbox' in the volunteer's area shelf in the gallery. Label the CD with your name and "WEB ART PICS".
3. Write a legible 50 word bio and either email it in email text only (no MS Word, please!) to Jon or print it on a paper and attach it to your CD.
