Artist Gallery Guidelines
Starting with your gallery
If you would like to open your own gallery on the TRAG website, request a username and password first:
The Website Coordinator will send you an email with the link to reset the password and a link to your TRAG account. If you ever forget your password, you will always be able to reset it again at https://www.threeriversartistguild.com/wp-login.php. Registering you with the website is a manual process. Automatic registrations have been disabled due to a high volume of spam.
Note: your TRAG account is only used for changing the email or password if you need to. You don’t have to feel anything else there.
Once your password is set, go to https://www.threeriversartistguild.com/trag-artists/?wpbdp_view=submit_listing and enter your email and password to log in.
You will be taken to a form that creates your gallery in 3 steps:
- choose your primary medium (category)
- add your contact information and artist statement
- add your images – up to 16
All artist galleries are categorized by a primary medium. If you work in more than one, put them into image captions during step 3.
If you don’t want to publish a phone number or any other contact info, leave those form fields blank, and it will not show on your gallery page.
As you add images to your gallery, successfully uploaded images will show as thumbnails with a text field for artwork details next to it. You can upload more than one image at once.
Once you publish your gallery, you will receive a confirmation email.
Editing your existing gallery
If you are still logged in, there will be the “Edit” button either under your gallery at https://www.threeriversartistguild.com/trag-artists/ or under your name in your gallery which will have a link similar to https://www.threeriversartistguild.com/trag-artists/YOUR-NAME/ (just replace YOUR-NAME with your actual first and last name and a hyphen between them). Click it, and you will see the same form you used to create the gallery. Everything in it will be editable.
If you are logged out, go https://www.threeriversartistguild.com/trag-artists/?wpbdp_view=login, log in there, and you will be taken to the list of galleries at https://www.threeriversartistguild.com/trag-artists/. You can find your galley under your chosen category at the top of the page or go to your gallery at https://www.threeriversartistguild.com/trag-artists/YOUR-NAME/. There will be an “Edit” link to the right from the thumbnail, right under your name.
If you have any trouble with editing your gallery or want to create a new one, contact the website coordinator, Yelena Shabrova, If you have any trouble with setting up or editing your gallery, contact Yelena Shabrova at firstname.lastname@example.org.
