Several of The Town of Bel Air and Harford County websites have links to our HAA website so it's important for our artists to be listed (which includes a photo representative of your art) in our Artists Directory page. To add your artwork and information, send by email one jpg or png file at least 400 to 500 pixels wide to the HAA webmaster. Also list your Media, Subject Matter, Website, and Facebook address in your email.

If you do commission work, list the types of commissions you do. If you sell prints, note cards, and giclees, etc., also mention that. You may add a short paragraph or two about yourself and your artwork. If you prefer, you may send your information by postal mail to the webmaster. If you want to discuss what to send with the webmaster, please call me.
