The folders are:
Acrylic - Oils - Tempera - Spray Paints (also including Encaustic painting)
Anamorphosis - Anamorphic Art
Artisan Crafts - Sculptures
Color Pencil - Watercolor Pencil, no water (means no water added)
Graphite - Charcoal - Carbon - "Lead" pencil

Scratchboard - Printmaking - Etching (also including Monotype works)
Watercolor - Gouache - Ink - Marker works (also including Coffee & Tea works & Water-Soluble Wax Pastel with water added)
This means that:
Artwork that is MOSTLY one (1) art medium should be submitted to that Gallery folder.
Artwork that is a combination of art mediums included in that folder. (example: watercolor & ink, or graphite & charcoal)
Mixed Mediums folder will be for artwork with:
Visibly both dry & wet media with approximately a 50%/50% ratio. (if you're not sure you understand what this means, note the group to ask and include a link to the artwork in question)
if it's NOT MOSTLY one (1) art medium (less than 70% of art media not combined with in the same folder).
