The Reality Of Art.

Let's Face It: Art acceptance, is more about who you know, then the work. Also its value is determined by what the buyer paid for it? Case in point, supposing a millionaire purchase a painting from an artist like myself, Hey! they'll be an overnight success story, even though they might’ve been earning a living as an artist for over 40 years.

Is it Art If You Don't Make But Just Sign It?

So many thoughts and ides and not enough time. That is an issue facing all creative types some times if not often through out their careers as visual artists. I bring this up because  of a discussion about Limited Editions and a statement that was made ” Limited editions giclées aren’t art–even if the artist signs the giclées.”

My question is it art if you didn’t make it by hand but signed it comes from this question and an article in Craft Magazine in the August/September 2011 Vol.…

Berkeley’s Artwork Loss Is a Museum’s Gain

BERKELEY, Calif. — Everybody misplaces something sometime. But it is not easy for the University of California, Berkeley, to explain how it lost a 22-foot-long carved panel by a celebrated African-American sculptor, or how, three years ago, it mistakenly sold this work, valued at more than a million dollars, for $150 plus tax.

The university’s embarrassing loss eventually enabled the Huntington…

P.Y.T.B.O.

Our staff recently had a heated discussion after filming a video to support President Obama in 2012.  I asked the question if anyone thought that tee-shirts could serve as a canvas for art?  The creative types agreed that yes, it could and they went on to say that some of the images and drawings that surfaced during our president's last campaign were great examples of Black Art.  Others laughed it off and considered it silly.  What are your thoughts?  Do you consider some of those…

Kodak Makes A Decision/ We Creatives May Have to Make Similar Decisions

Its time for my weekly post and as I was thinking about a subject and surfing the web when I came across an article about Kodak abandoning the manufacturing of digital cameras. It made think of my first post about Kodak and how it related to artists who fail to change or adapt as technology and the market changes.

Kodak has come to the decision that it can no longer compete against the new kids on the block who have become the leaders in the making consumer and the so called pro-sumer…
