Welcome to ARTWV

Please excuse us if some of the links are not working
We have just moved and are under construction

Remember to bookmark this page!

ARTWV is a free e-mail list for West Virginia artists and crafters
who wish to communicate with each other via the internet on topics related to arts & crafts.
As an ARTWV member you will also have access to the "ARTWV Members Only" site.
The "ARTWV Members Only" site contains useful information & examples on a variety of topics.
Artists new to the art & craft world are encouraged to join the list
and may benefit from the knowledge of the more seasoned professionals.

To be included on this list, you must either be an artist, crafter, writer or musician in West Virginia
( I think that covers everyone!)
or in some capacity be involved  with  Arts or Crafts in WV.
This includes organizations such as the Cultural Center  or  Tamarack.
Gallery owners, Tamarack employees, etc.. Who are not actually artists themselves are welcome.
( You DO NOT have to be a juried artist with Tamarack to be on the list! )

Many of us on this list are juried Artists, Crafters or Advisory Board Members with Tamarack.
We have created an archive on this subject.
This archive is a semiprivate copy open only to Advisory Board Members and Officials at Tamarack.
  * ATTENTION:  Remember this when contributing on Tamarack,
so you don't say something you might regret later!
You may however, start your message with:
"Remove my name before copying to Tamarack Archives"
"Do not include this message in Tamarack archives"
( Just say something, so we know you don't want in the Tamarack archives! )

If you feel you must remain anonymous, you can e-mail the moderators  your message
and one of us will post it to the group as an anonymous message.

If you have questions
Please visit the Frequently Asked Questions page.
If you can't find the answer there, please feel free to e-mail  ARTWV
We will answer your question as soon as possible.

You are required to fill out a Members Profile form and send it to
the moderators before we can add you to the ARTWV e-mail list.

and all listings can be viewed by members after joining.
It is also used to prove you are a West Virginia Artist wishing to join the list.
We use this information to approve you to the list.
