The last gallery hop of the year is happening this Friday from 5:00 to 8:00 PM in Uptown Saint John, New Brunswick. There will be art cards from several well-known local artists such as Cliff Turner, Colin Smith, David Hayward, John Johnson, Ed Coleman, ,Mary Young, Patricia Tingley, Pat Trecartin, Herzl Kashetsky and many more including myself.
There will also be a silent auction of a very special piece of art by Fred Ross. The proceeds will be donated to a charity of Fred’s choice.
I’ll be at the Klausen Gallery located at 106 Prince William Street that evening. Hope to see you there.
In today’s world of social media, digital voices rant and rave, ruminate on their experiences, give life to the world’s causes, bring fame to the worthy, bring shame to the unworthy, denounce dishonesty and evil, and preach a million variations on truth. But while the voices are loud, the social media movement is, for the most part, a faceless movement. Conversations, discussions, relationships, business partnerships, and friendships exist where face-to-face encounters do not. Such is the nature of the Internet, and why this project, The Culture of Content Creation, was launched.
Over on Alliance for Arts there was an announcement made. This is one of the nicest announcements I have read about and hope to attend. As a blogger/artist/etc… this Outreach program could not have come at a better time for me. If any of you artists who reside in the Vancouver area would like to attend with me send me an email at vanesica(AT)shawca, I’ll be happy to go with you. It is free to attend and free to also schedule a one-on-one appointment.
The Artists Legal Outreach (ALO) is a pilot project of the Alliance for Arts & Culture. We will provide artists in all disciplines with access to summary legal advice and hold dialogues on arts-related issues on a monthly basis.
Who we are
The Artists Legal Outreach is staffed by volunteer lawyers with experience in legal issues faced by artists. All are members of the Law Society of BC and have insurance coverage. The ALO is guided by an Advisory Committee of members of the arts community and the Alliance for Arts & Culture.
What we do
Summary Advice: Legal advice will be offered in 30 minute sessions with a volunteer lawyer. After the artist completes an online intake form, ALO will review the form and schedule a session. During the session the lawyer can answer questions you may have and provide advice.
