be a place for website policy discussion, answering frequently asked questions,
and a place for the Webmaster to inform CVAA members about anything he thinks

about our web site, please email
I'm curious if anyone is reading this page.
Please email me at
firstname.lastname@example.org if you read this. Thanks!

SNAIL MAIL You can send me photographs by snail mail, but please send
me duplicates so I don't have to worry about returning them. I don't like

If you have a lot of paintings you'd like published on
the Internet, I'd encourage you to set up your own website. We can link to
your website in Member Websites.
If you have any other information you'd like to put on
the website, please send it to me. We'd like to have this website as
current, and informative as possible. If you know a Member's email address
not included on the Member's List, please send it to me.
Photo Policy: To be fair to all, we're currently
limiting pictures to three per artist in each category (i.e.
Award Winning Art &
Works of CVAA Artists).
If we get too many, this may be reduced to two.
Questions: If you have any
comments, suggestions, criticisms (please be gentle!), let me know, and I'll put
those of general interest on this page. (Constructive
criticism is negative comments that are well organized.) <GRIN>
Let me know what else you would like to have on the website.
I'd encourage you to looking into the world of digital photography, digital
imaging, and web publishing, as well as art classes. There are many

department, and some in the computer department.
