ADMIN PERSPECTIVE:
I'm an FAA Fellow and Admin, creating contests so that ALL our artworks are visible, publicly viewed, and we share fellowship; thereby for this reason my own artworks and photography are displayed in these contests. Since I do not have a strong following nor the audience I believe art shows are usually hosted by gallery owners, cooperative of artist or fellows.

The Group & Contests do not endorse artworks and spiritual creativity; rather seeks to engage, dialogue, and pray that the spiritual life is growing upward, heavenly.
Please maintain a disposition of prayer, ecumenism, kind, respectful, with integrity to all seekers, creatives, indies, and spiritual artworks and their artist.
