The annual VAW membership fee entitles you to have your very own page on the VAW website. This is one of the many benefits of being a member of the VAW.

When you click on Members in the top navigation bar of the website, you will find a gallery of Member photos and names arranged at the top of the page. Click on one of these and that member's very own page on this website will open.

However, you MUST submit a photo of yourself to have a web page. No image, no page. The best we can do is include your name on the "More Members" page, included in the Member Gallery.

What type of photo can you submit?

- Ideally, a head shot of yourself. Or, just a photo of yourself taken in a garden, on a trip, while painting, etc.

- Alternatively, a self-portrait (line drawing, sketch, painting, etc.). Surprisingly enough, many artists have these!

Unless you wish otherwise, your email address will be made visible on your page, but you can also have your phone number, website, or the name and address of a commercial studio or shop listed as well.  Please let me know which information you wish to be made public (none, all, or some). [Personal addresses cannot be included on these pages.]

Please email your photo image, along with all contact information you wish to be made public on your page, to Tina Clancy at


For an additional $10 per year, you can have more information and images of your artwork added onto your Member web page, including:

a) your Artist Bio, Statement, and any other information you wish to include about yourself and your art (ex. information about classes, etc.),

b) up to 10 photos of your art, each with the Title and Medium in the filename of the image. Once these photos are placed on your page, they are fed randomly into the slide show on the opening Home page of the website.

Send information and images to Tina at

You will have the opportunity to refresh your information and photos each year, and you must renew your $10 payment to keep the extra information and photos visible.
