Yes, absolutely...being in the "Member Gallery" is in no way a limiting factor. In fact, posting enough good work in there will most definitely get you into the Expert Gallery.
Also, in reverse...once someone is in the Expert gallery, they are still free to post in the member gallery when they want comments, opinions, etc (since the Expert Gallery is not part of the forum and doesn't allow for this. It is more of a static Gallery display, like you might see in a real museum). So, we will be seeing some crossover there...In addition, artists who are not currently involved with the site, but do extrordinary work, will still be invited directly into the Expert Gallery as has always been done. The helps to expand the community and the collection of quality art available to visitors.
So, although the basic idea is similiar to what is happening at GFXArtist, is will function a bit differently...our own take on things if you will.
Edit: Changed "Elite" to be "Expert" for the first gallery area to avoid confusion with GFXArtist or other sites as you guys mentioned...I considered "Guru", but thought this might be better!
