How it Works

5 min read
0 Favourites


Now that there are two moderators, instead of just me, I have decided to go with what I will call the "Too Many Popes System" --We will be a bit more exclusive than in the past, and decisions will be left entirely to the judgment of the individual mods. Thus members will be at the mercy of whichever moderator decides to accept or reject his/her work.

In addition, moderators will identify themselves from now on: If they accept a work they will leave their mark in the "Artist's Comments" box. If they reject a work they will identify themselves in the rejection note. In this way we will all know who is doing what and members will be free to appeal to other mods if they feel strongly enough about getting a piece into the club gallery.


1.) You must be a creator of surreal/imaginative work, not macabre/horror (these classifications are subject to the interpretation of the moderator(s)). Submissions can be any medium of visual artwork (traditional,digital,etc.).

2.) To join, simply note the club specifically requesting admission. We will then reply to your request and let you know if your work is deemed suitable for the club.

3.) Members Include the icon of the club in the journal writing iconthe-surreal-arts with : at the begining and the end without spaces.
Have to keep a Watch on the club journal for updates and upcoming contests.


1.) Submissions must be sent as links in notes requesting that they be submitted.  You can submit more than one work per note.
All this media works can be received:
:star: Traditional drawing or painting
:star: Collage
:star: Sculpture
:star: Photography
:star: Mixed media
:star: Photomanipulation
:star: Digital drawing or painting
:star: Fractals and 3D
:star: Animation
:star: Movies

We don´t accept: Literature

2.) Exceptional surreal works by non-members will be considered on a case-by-case basis, if they arrive as links in a note with the subject line "non-member submission".

3.) Remember, above all, to keep dreaming.

Rules on :+fav:s and Comments

Please use the links provided in each gallery post to :+fav: works and leave comments for the contributing artists. The artists won't see the comments or know about the :+fav:s unless all of you, our wonderful audience, use the links to the original work. Thanks for your help.

I have a mouse and he hasn't got a house I don't know why I call him Gerald. He's getting rather old but he's a good mouse.

We have rats. We call them 'bastard'. But of most interest is that we have huge huntsman spiders, all of whom are called ... Gerald!

Well... (cough) since you accepted my suggestion for the theme - believe I'm obligated to participate :)

Have an idea for it - now to find the time to get it done.

Think this should get some interesting images
