Welcome to the Oklahoma Showcase! The goal of this group is to showcase all of the wonderful beauty, long history, and diverse culture that Oklahoma has to offer. While this group may host many artists from Oklahoma, membership is open to all who want to share and promote their artwork that visually reflects and represents our great state.
This group is open to all mediums. Remember that this organization (Fine Art America) is about FINE ART so it's critical that your exhibits in this group meet that criteria - only high quality upscale work that you expect a collector to purchase. Submissions must reflect Oklahoma culture and natural beauty such as landscape, architecture, cultural activities, etc.
All artwork MUST come from Oklahoma and MUST state a location in your tags/keywords or description. Work will be reviewed and if the requirements are not met, it will be rejected. If your submission focuses on a specific subject that is a common item which is widely found in many locales, it probably isn't appropriate. For example, a beautiful and creative marble arrangement, even though it is photographed in Oklahoma, just doesn't send a clear and unique message about Oklahoma. Abstracts and macros of objects probably isn't your best choice. We hate to be harsh but we want a group with absolute artistic quality that shows a visitor or art collector just what Oklahoma has to offer. The administrator tries to remain objective but reserves the right to make selections, much like a brick and mortar gallery owner. So please select your work carefully and only submit your BEST work.
A word about flowers... they make beautiful images and many artists want to exhibit this for others to see. Initially, we avoided accepting flower images as they don't always reflect anything unique about Oklahoma but due to their popularity, flower images will be accepted HOWEVER, please use your description to tie them to our great state... be creative about it. :)
It's vital that this group looks professional so that we can 'woo' our visitors with beauty, encourage them to share with their friends, and buy artwork that can't be found elsewhere. Let's build a group that will promote our work and state.
