There are so many folders to choose from when you are about to submit your work to the group. To prevent confusion and people submitting in the wrong folders (It’s a real pain), we’ve typed out some guidelines to help our members out. Global submission limit is two per day, except for the Featured folder, which is 1 per month.

VanLook Featured By Owner Mar 19, 2013  Hobbyist Digital Artist
That is one difficult question. I have no experience with art galleries and certainly not with New York, so I don't really know how to answer that question.
