Q: When does registration end?
A: Registration will close this Friday on February 15th. Seriously.
Q: What happens when registration ends?
A: First, it identifies who will participate in the SOS Weekend Event in May. Then, it allows us to add the SOS Weekend Event related information to the publishable materials. On the 16th we lock down the Artist's Public name and studio location information to keep it consistent with the publications until the SOS Event Weekend. The information will be editable again on May 4th.
Q: What are my choices for membership?
A: This year we've tried to simplify things as much as possible. Your membership options are:
1. Basic Web Presence Membership: includes membership to our site to publicize your art throughout the year ($25)
- OR -
2. Event Participation Membership: includes membership to our site (the Basic Web Presence) AND to the SOS Weekend Event on May 3rd &4th ($55)
In addition, you can add to your website presence with an expansion which allows you more artwork and an opportunity to share more details about yourself and your art. ($25).
