"I agree it is assemblage and could be considered art. Pop art in particular... think Warhol's campbell soup cans or Duchamp's "Fountain". As far as trademarks, they are totally within their rights to use it that way. Imagine…"

Buy and sell

I was recently in a fair where a neighbor was selling die cut mats of Batman and Purdue, star wars  etc. and placing them over legos glued to foam core, then framed. They were selling all weekend. My question is do you think this is artistic? And would you consider it “buy sell”? See More

Kelly Meska commented on Ron Mellott's blog post Juries, Jurors and Scores of "1" - an option to consider
"The problem I have is the inconsistency of the juries. The Krasl jury was especially disappointing. I got in last year and this year got a 1 from one of the jurors. It’s just frustrating trying to figure out what they are looking for. Is it…"
