Larry Berman replied to tricia d sutton's discussion selling art prints with no mat and what tape to use?
"I think you mean reproductions. The original already exist so it's called a reproduction. Using a mat, though it may be disposable, means they won't have to handle the print. Matting can be really inexpensive. I recommend white mats with…"

Larry Berman replied to Mike Giordano's discussion Newbie looking for some advice

I scored a "1" at the Krasl Jury

Posted on March 1, 2018 at 7:00pm 89 Comments

Quite a few artists posted about their Krasl jury scores on some of the Facebook art show forums. I even received two phone calls from artists asking me to check to see if something was wrong with their images.

So many artists posted about receiving one or even two of the lowest possible score of a "1" out of "7" that it makes me wonder if the people doing the jurying knows what that means, or what instructions were given by the director.

Years ago I was interviewing a show…

Posted on December 14, 2017 at 4:54pm 3 Comments

Happy Holidays everyone
