Thumbs up A Special Invitation from your Oil Pastel Society!

The Oil Pastel Society was formed on September 1, 2004, as a non-profit
organization to promote the knowledge and understanding of oil pastel as a
fine art medium, and to expand the awareness of oil pastel to other artists,
galleries, the media, and the general public.

We hope that you will visit our site and see all the exciting information we have on membership benefits, including:

-newsletter, featuring news about member artists, tips and techniques
-upcoming competitions
-oil pastel workshops
-featured Artist of the Month

Your membership will be free until January 2005, and we are confident that you will want to join us in the active promotion of oil pastel as a fine art medium and receive these OPS member benefits:

-gallery space on the OPS site with a brief bio and 5 images of your work
-links to your website
-the opportunity to achieve Signature membership

We are working in conjunction with major oil pastel manufacturers towards a goal of sponsoring future competitions, and will be using an aggressive marketing strategy to promote oil pastel features in major art publications.

The Oil Pastel Society was formed to represent you, the artist, as an oil pastelist and will welcome all input from our members to make this a viable tool for your success! The website for the Oil Pastel Society is:

Oil Pastel Society

Please bookmark for future reference.



'Friends of OPS' are welcome to join also, we welcome your support in our efforts.



All the information for "how to join" can be found on our Membership Page. We hope to hear from you soon!

Very cool! Is there any way to make the domain name field accept more characters? I couldn't include mine, so I left that part out.

Thanks!

I just changed it to 60 characters wide. Let me know if there's anything else. You'll need to refresh your page, before you re-try.

Beautiful website! I'm so happy the Society is official, and I'm so grateful to everyone for making it happen. I was so excited, I signed up as a member about 30 seconds after I read about it!
