Last year I was set up next to someone who was using a "Deep Cycle (or Cell) Marine Battery to power his lights.  He said it could power the amount he was using (maybe 100 watts) for up to 48 hours…Continue

I just got my email from Reston to apply for their show.  The jury fee is $50.  I replied that it was too high.  I think everyone should do that to any show who's jury fee is over $40 or next thing…Continue

I remember reading on one of the blogs a few months ago (I can't find it) that there was a "Square like" processing company that allowed you to retain the customer's email address.  Can anyone tell…Continue

Bernard Zalon replied to Joseph Magnano's discussion the number one American Art Fair
"Well, I never said that a giclee is a xerox.  However, like a xerox, it is a copy of an original work of art.  It's a reproduction.  "

Bernard Zalon replied to Joseph Magnano's discussion the number one American Art Fair
"Well, if you consider a xerox of a drawing to be real art then I guess you feel the same way about "giclees," which I've heard is French slang for masturbation."

Bernard Zalon replied to Joseph Magnano's discussion the number one American Art Fair
"A giclee is not real art.  It is a copy of real art. A counterfeit hundred dollar bill isn't real money either.  “Giclee" isn't even a real word.  It's just a fancy french sounding name for an ink jet print.…"

Bernard Zalon replied to Joseph Magnano's discussion the number one American Art Fair
"Well, a "giclee" print of a photograph is still a photograph.  A "giclee" copy of a painting is something else altogether, don't you think?"

Wickford Art Show

Posted on January 25, 2013 at 11:19am 1 Comment

Any thoughts on the Wickford Art Show in July?  I did it a few years ago, it wasn't so good, but I heard that it was a lot better last year. This year they have a new director...

I'm a printmaker.
