Wall Eye Gallery – Call for Submissions

November 30, 2009

This is a call to submit pieces into Wall Eye Gallery’s next show, “Festivus!” December 18th-20th.

Visit Wall Eye’s Website

Here are the guidelines:

~ Please e-mail us images of 1 to 3 pieces you’d like to enter. Attach a title list of your pieces including the medium, dimensions, and price. (For price, please indicate whether it’s your cost, or the price it will be sold for.)

~ Because of space restrictions, and to make room for many artists, each piece should not exceed 24″ in height and width.

Please keep in  mind:

– All 2D pieces should be hang ready. Pieces that are to be pinned, taped, or sticky-tacked will not be accepted.
– All 3D pieces should be stable and/or come with mounting hardware if needed.
– The commission is 60% to the artist, 40% to the gallery.
– All pieces in “Festivus” will be priced at $100 or under. Therefore artist’s cost for pieces should not exceed $60.
**The DEADLINE to e-mail us your images is FRIDAY, DECEMBER 4th, 2009.**

Artists will be notified which of their pieces have been accepted by Monday, December 7th.

Should one or all of your pieces be accepted into “Festivus!” the drop-off dates and times are:

Thursday, December 10th 6:00pm-9:00pm
Friday, December 11th 6:00pm-10:00pm

Model Release Primer

November 16, 2009

Pop Quiz:
  1. Does “selling” a photo for a profit require a model release?
  2. Do I need a release for a photo I took of someone in a public place?
  3. Should I get a release even if the person in the photo is unrecognizable?
  4. I’m going exhibit my photos of people at an art fair. Do I need releases?
  5. What if the person is dead?
  6. Do I need a release for photos of naked people?
  7. I have tons of pictures of my ex-girlfriend. Can she sue me if I sold them?
  8. I own a portrait studio. Do I need clients to sign releases?
  9. I took a lot of pictures as a hobby, and now I want to sell them. Do I need releases for all my pictures of people?
  10. Someone wants to buy my photo of a particular building. Do I need a property release?
  11. I was on someone’s vineyard and I photographed their grapes. Does the fact that it’s private property trigger the need for a release?

Dana Deprew is planning Asterisk Gallery’s 5th Annual Benefit.  He is looking for artists to donate a work.  He is especially interested in featuring artists who’ve taken part in exhibitions over the past year as a sort of showcase.  That includes many of you who were included in the Image + Object exhibition.  (Photo III: this will count as 1 local exhibition requirement).

All work is auctioned with bids starting at $30.  So not only is this a great opportunity to support an important community arts organization in our area, its also a chance to pick up some new art for your pad at a great price.

Silent Bidding starts on Fri, Dec 11, 5-10pm and ends Sat, Dec 12, 6-11pm.
