Our New Seattle Art Forums Are LIVE!

by Joe McDonald on January 29, 2012

Art ForumsWe’re excited to announce that our new Art Forums are up and running! We’ve completely rebuilt the art forums and we’d like to invite you to check them out. There’s still work to do and the content is pretty thin right now, but we think they are a huge improvement over the old ones. Most of the forums are open to everyone but you must be registered to post & reply to topics.

Please note, that even if you were a registered user of the old forums, you will still need to re-register in our new system.

Forum Features

  • Community posts – calls for artists, art competitions & contests, our exclusive art & artist requests
  • Classifieds – art space available, help wanted & needed
  • Member Lounge – site feedback, support, and frequently asked questions

And we’re working hard to add more topics & content!
