Member and Submission Guidelines

Member Guidelines:

Anyone is welcome to join #ArtOfTheFingerLakes, however, it would make some sense if you had some art to submit that fit within the submission guidelines. Other than that, we welcome all discussions and all kinds, so long as we remain respectful and courteous to each other. You know, act like mature people. Any racist, sexist, homophobic, or other hateful speech or submissions will not be tolerated and will result in removal from the group.

Submission Guidelines:

The most obvious thing is probably that all work should somehow relate to New York's Finger Lake region. If that qualification is met, all work is acceptable, medium does not matter. However, some clarification should be made. Art submitted to this group's gallery or favorites don't necessarily have to be of the Finger Lakes, but should be something unique to the region. There are many state parks in the area, with gorgeous gorges and waterfalls. It is also New York's biggest wine region, and features many unique locations along its shores. But some focus should stay on the lakes. For example, Ithaca, NY has a very large Farmer's Market. The weekend market takes place at the Steamboat Landing on the shores of Cayuga Lake and would make for some excellent fodder for submissions here. However, the Thursday market takes place at Dewitt Park in downtown Ithaca, and perhaps is too far removed from the Lake. Regardless, this is flexible and we'll assess each submission on its own merits.

Outside of that, hateful, sexist, homophobic, pornographic, and stolen art has no place here and will not be tolerated.

We look forward to your submissions. Enjoy your stay.
Hey everyone, it's been a few. . . years. . . sorry about that.

Anyways, wanted to let everyone know of a new group I've affiliated Art of the Finger Lakes with and, hopefully, we'll be able to rustle up new work for each other. :iconempirestateartists: is a group that is kind of inline with the concept of our group except focusing on all of NYS. Nicely, they break the gallery up by region, so if we all join up we should be able to quickly buff up their Finger Lakes section.

So join the new group and get your friends all over New York to do the same. Let's show everyone that the Finger Lakes are, truly, splendid from every direction.

. . . Yeah, that was corny, sorry about that. Still, join up and share your work!

I do believe this group can be declared defunct.

Thanks for featuring my work. I did not see it, but appreciate it nevertheless. Nice to see this Finger Lakes theme. A beautiful region to be sure.
