If you wish to be a visiting artist, complete the “Visiting Artists’ Submission Form” and then select “Visiting Artists’ Registration” to check out.  Once we have built your page and confirmed that your resident artist has agreed to host you, your page will be published.

SAFARI ARTISTS have completed the jury process and are resident members.  They are not required to participate in every Safari, but they must register for each Safari in which they do choose to participate.
