I am James R Granberry. I am a native Austinite of Austin, Texas, United States. I still live in Austin and help organize Austin local art exhibits with local artists. I also jury what art and artists get to show. My background is in art and photography. My mother is a retired art teacher, so you know I have had a life long influence and mentoring. One of my local friend influences of 5 yrs now is Eli Reed, a Magnum Photographer, and camera director of many leading movies. Eli has really rekindled my passions in the art of photography and digital art.
I made this group to filter through what I see as beautiful and artistic from artists world wide. This group is open to artists abroad and all mediums of art.
I also submit images to feature, favorites of my own. ;) As my photographic images or digital art came only from me I ask that images you submit be images you created and if photos then the originality is all yours, from beginning to end of any process you may use. From taking the photo to rendering. Please no photos of portions of paintings that were painted by someone else other than yourself. Photos may be of classic sculptures that are public icons.
1. Don't hate me for being very picky. If I reject art from a member it is not a rejection of you as an individual or personally. I am accepting and featuring only what is pleasing to my eyes and conceptions of understanding through my years of love in fine art.
2. Only 1 upload per day is allowed. Please present only your very best in your eyes and the open market's eyes. If you post more than 1 piece in one day I will only select my favorite one and deny the rest, that is if anyone of them do meet the fascination of my eye's taste buds.
3. If any artist repetitively posts more than 1 piece per day they may be subject to exclusion from the group.
