@garyw, your visual artist page is a great suggestion and is a long overdue feature! We did, long ago, have an artists page, however it only displayed a long list of artist names and links. It wasn't very useful or compelling and it took too long to load, so I removed it. I had intended to replace it with a more useful page, however the intention got lost among all the other stuff to do.
So, please check out the new Artists page, when you have a chance! As you suggested, it shows the artists' latest work and their bio photo. It allows you to search by genre, media, size, price range, and more. You can search for artists that offer other things, such as workshops, prints, calendars, etc. The page is also, at long last, where you can view and manage your favorite artists!
I did decide to have the artists on the page rotate upward in alphabetical order so it should rotate completely every three hours. This only happens when there is no searching. As soon as there are search criteria, the artists show in alphabetical order. I am hoping this is a good compromise.
Thanks again for the great suggestion!
