Dialogue with the Webmaster
This will 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 might be of value.
For technical questions about our web site, please email Webmaster

I'm curious if anyone is reading this page.  Please email me at gbjpefley@yahoo.com if you read this.  Thanks!

Requests for art work and other content for website:  Please send me any digital pictures of your paintings, CVAA events, etc., so I can include them in the Photo Gallery. 
Send to:
     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 feeling guilty!  It takes me longer to scan non-digital photographs.  Include description of the art work: Name, medium, title, size, award, etc.  Since we live in two places, I'll highlight in bold on the Member's List, the place to send information by snail mail. 
     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.

Webmaster Personal:
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 worthwhile classes at community colleges, such as WNCC (Western Nevada Community College http://www.wncc.edu), and LTCC (Lake Tahoe Community College http://www.ltcc.cc.ca.us/).  Some courses are given in the art department, and some in the computer department.
Wacom Tablet:  I mentioned the Wacom Table as an interesting tool for working with digital photos in programs like Photoshop.  Take a look at: www.wacom.com   Here is some info from their website:
Over 2,000,000 tablet owners and counting.
    Wacom pen tablets are the fastest, most comfortable way to work with your computer.
       Intuos3 is the professional pen tablet that turns on the full power of Photoshop's 20 pressure-sensitive tools. With its comfortable Grip Pen and feature-packed mouse, you have the control and power you need to really get the most out of all your graphics applications. Intuos2 comes in five sizes, from the 4x5 ($199.95) to the 12x18 ($749.99)

Website Problems: Please let me know if you find any errors or problems with the website.  Let me know what browser you use.  I use Firefox ver 1.5.  I also check out the website with Internet Explorer, Netscape ver. 4.7 and ver. 7.0, for compatibility.
