I've heard over the years that a lot of people who aren't themselves artisans don't visit the Creating Tiki forums because there's too much "shop talk" and it's difficult as an admirer to find finished works.

So I've created this forum to have a gallery of sorts, so that the artists can hang out in the studio (Creating Tiki) and talk shop, and people who want to show off their finished works can post to the gallery.

A few guidelines:

Post your OWN artwork only!
This is a place for artists to show off their own finished pieces. If you're not the artist, don't post the pictures!

You don't HAVE to post finished pieces to the Gallery.
You can keep posting them to creating if you want, especially to finish off a work-in-progress thread.

Expect criticism.
Think of this as a real gallery! When you put your work on display, you're inviting people to take in your art, and that will generate feedback.

Keep criticism constructive.
I believe you can always tell the truth and be polite at the same time. If you don't think you can, don't say anything. I am in no way asking you to lie! Just be considerate when phrasing your opinions.

Don't hijack topics.
This means two things: If someone wants to create a topic specifically for their art, let them, and keep posts there about their art. And also, don't turn a topic into a how-to. Q&A about a piece is fine, but this is the showroom. Artists: feel free to link to a corresponding Creating Tiki topic if you have one over there.

It's an experiment, and we'll see it works out!
