    2014 Artisphere Open Jury Review

    The open jury for the 2014 Artisphere art show was Saturday November 16th, 2013.

Artists who attend an open jury should take away something that can improve their chances of getting into art shows.    Read More…>>

    Artists are struggling trying to keep up with the past. The value of art, or more specifically the value of owning art has changed. It’s time to reverse the trend by trying to bring art buyers and collectors back to the art shows instead of people who live their lives in social media.    Read More…>>

    juryimages.com home page

    The best resource web site for artists (well, second best to BermanGraphics) is http://juryimages.com. It offers two things; free image processing for ZAPP or JAS and a way to visually test and compare your jury presentation. Because of the complexity of the different types of code used on the web site, everything broke last week […]    Read More…>>

    Dr J photo used for the Converse wall

    It’s not whether or not the orphan rights bill passes, it’s the selfish attitude that “everything is free on the internet.” Case in point. One of my most popular photographs of Julius Erving is a shot I took of him from the back with his hands on his hips. Aside from the many prints I’ve […]    Read More…>>
