    We now have a section dedicated to WW2 Art called Art of War. Only sparsely populated right now, we will move all threads concerning paintings, prints, sculptures, and drawing to that area.

    I've also dedicated an area to Trench Art in the Militaria section, as these items seem a bit more at home there to me.

    We have had two rather remarkably talented artish show up in the last year or so . This may attract more or aid the ones already here.

    Good move, no pun intended, otto

    Indeed Gaines.

    I wanted to do this earlier, but had some technical problems with the server impeding me. I have a smallish collection of war art myself and have always appreciated a nice work. Once the impending server migration is complete and the gallery is re-opened I'll share some of what I have.

    This is a good area to explore. There are many talented artists hereabout. Nice to put them all in one place.
