Stop by and see who else won, as well as some thoughts from our juror here.

Our thanks to Robb, our three award winners, and to all of the participating artists!

Still time to vote!

Voting continues for our other three December exhibits. EBSQ Members can log in to vote for Member’s Choice and site patrons and visitors are invited to utilize our social-vote buttons for the Cloud Choice awards. Winners will be announced on 8 January 2013! So vote now!

Our winter sale continues–grab a great deal before they melt away!

We’re gearing up for big changes at EBSQ, including going advertising-free, but we need your help to do it!  Unfortunately, we still haven’t met our goal of 150 new members to replace the lost advertising revenue.

To that end, monthly memberships and permanent accounts are still on sale. Each new (and returning) monthly member helps us meet our monthly bills and expenses. Each permanent account purchase goes toward upgrading equipment, software licenses (including a major upgrade to our forum software), and building toward our future so we can compete with the big fish out there.

Please help. Spread the word. Forward this to a friend. Join (or re-join) if you can. Together, we can make 2013 an incredible year for the self-representing artist.

Wishing you peace, prosperity, and an Artful New Year,
