Andy Warhol's Portrait of Gay Underground Culture   Pick-button-0f29c6c075c514ef3a12253f1d60018e
Posted 6/26/15

In celebration of Pride week, Christie's ran a special Warhol auction this week, making some 100 photographs and drawings available to purchase. Beyond the price tags, the works, many in the public eye for the first time, draw a passionate portrait of the underground LGBT scene of the '70s and '80s that was so much a part of the artist's life. They are a historical archive, charting a defining era of sexuality and social politics in American cities like San Francisco and New York City. Though t... [more]

Congress Introduces Bill Entitling Visual Artists to Copyright Protections  
2/27/14 Posted 2/27/14

We assume that when a book is sold, the author gets paid. When a song is played, the musician gets paid. But when a work of art is sold, often the artist gets...well, nothing. In an art economy becoming ever more characterized by quick turn-arounds and massive art speculation, it isn't the artists who profit when the price tags on their works go up. Those profits go to the dealers, the auction houses, and the galleries. The artists that created the works: they can't claim a dime of what they sell for. ... [more]

The Importance of Statistics  
7/9/12 Posted 7/9/12

Without statistics a business manager is just poking around in the dark and make no mistake Art is a business. I've always known it was important to get feedback but friends, relatives and face to face conversations will only offer what people think you want to hear.

I've been on the search for good honest, feedback since I became a professional Artist and... [more]
