NEW Artist Registry

February 25, 2011

The Washington County Arts Council, Inc announces that its new “Artist Registry” on the Washington County Arts Council, Inc. website is now “live.” The Artist Registry has been made possible through generous support from DH Web and the City of Hagerstown. • The Artist Registry has been added to the left main menu of the WCAC home page (www.washisngtoncountyarts.com). • The Artist Registry includes both “Browse by Artist” and a “Browse by Category” options. • The “Browse by Artist” page is an alphabetized list of all registered artists with a link to their portfolio. • The Artist Registry page includes a link to the Maryland State Arts Council “Find an Artist” page. • The Artist Registry allows artists to upload images of their work to the registry; the images are automatically resized to 640px width and also to a thumbnail. Images must be JPG format and less than 4MB in size. This should allow anyone to use the files right from their cameras (e.g. 12 megapixel camera JPG files are 2.5MB). • Since new portfolio items require WCAC approval to display, an email is now automatically sent to WCAC each time a new item is added. WCAC invites artists and art organizations to post art events on the website’s “Art Calendar” on the same site. Resource links to area calendars can be found at the bottom of the “Art Calendar” page. For further information, contact Mary Anne Burke, WCAC Executive Director at 301-791-3132 or maryanneb@washingtoncountyarts.com
