Ever since I started my art gallery site I have been flooded with E-mail from those who have visited it. Some were artists, others were art teachers, some were just people who like looking at good art and others were doing research or seeking information or advice. A great many felt alone in their interests, but I knew they weren’t because of the volume of mail I was receiving and I arrived at the conclusion that everyone would benefit if there were some way we could all communicate with one another and that a mailing list would be a good way of accomplishing that. Now it is here and you can join up and participate in the fun.

  • To discuss the “New Masters” who use them too and improve them
  • To introduce and organize teachers, artists, dealers, and collectors for mutual benefit
  • To promote other good art organizations such as the Classical Realism Society, ART , and The Art Renewal Center
  • To facilitate announcement and discussion of Internet-related art resources
