Due to the time it takes to adequately critique a piece, WGNC recently began limiting the monthly gallery to one piece per member.

Members need to choose and bring in just their best two pieces -- or most challenging or interesting -- to be photographed and critiqued. We know you may produce several amazing works each month, but only one or two should be deemed -- by you -- as worthy of this treatment.
Please note that pairs or small sets of things (<3) will be permitted, but treated as your total items. So a pair of candle sticks, for example, fills your quota and does not mean you can bring something in addition.
