We will hold our Salons and Crit/Support Groups on the first Sunday of each month, from 4-6 pm, at the Oakland Studio. (730 29th Street, Suite 101). We will begin on May 6th with the salon topic, “Great Artists Steal”, followed by the first Crit/Support Group on Sunday June 3rd.
Membership is an affordable $30 per year. A complete outline of benefits with a sign up form can be found on this pdf file.
At “Great Artists Steal” we’ll talk about the recent Richard Prince copyright infringement suit and its potential effect on YOUR artwork. Also, we will view and discuss a TED presentation by Larry Lessig on the subject of easing copyright law. After learning its surprising end proposal, share whether you think you as an artist could adopt his suggestion. Yeah, and I should also mention, parts of the video is hilarious! Last, we’ll be taking down ideas from attendees for future Salon topics.
We really hope you will join us!
