  1. Thank you for this extensive list. As always I feel like you guys have got my back ….even if I am not communicating the way you would have liked. The information
    And flow of educational material is so thought provoking. I have ventured out and been accepted by some venues and that has been largely because of your continued encouragement. It’s kind of the planting seeds and watering them thing.

  2. Mastrius (formerly Levelling Up) is an awesome new group (under 2 years) with a growing community of masters, mentors, emerging and aspiring artists.

  3. Art Connect Society (especially if you're looking for a more international platform)
    Also Art Connect Women if you're looking for a mother/women-focused group
