Artist Scams

While you'd think that scamming an artist would not bring in any money - they do!  Got a fax the other day from Princeton's Who's Who of Executive, Professionals and Entrepreneurs informing me that "you and your business have been selcted to be published for free in the 2009/2010 Edition" of the aformentioned.

All I can say is hurray for google!  It turned up this little post about this Who's Who.  Here's the url if the link doesn't work for you, just copy and paste into your browser:

And then I found this comment

By the time I found this comment

I realized that I had my three sources and they all said the same thing....it's a scam!  It's amazing how vanity can be used to scam folks, especially artists who are not given much respect in this country.  So ifyou get a fax or an email, just ignore it.

This past July, my digital painting called Message 3, from the Power Series,  was invited to be part of a group show (through the Digital Fine Arts Guild on Yahoo) called Synthesis-Art and Science.  The show was this past June at the Escondido Municipal Gallery near San Diego.  I had forgotten to post this, James Respess, another great photographer and digital artist, was great in that he took photos of all the work as it was on the walls...

Eat Your Art.....

And drink too... join me as I put together a group of 10 folks who will eat and drink their way through midtown and downtown Sacramento on Saturday, 9/26 from noon to 5 pm.  I've got two people signed up and need 8 more.... tickets are $35/person, which is a great deal for eating and drinking one's way thru town.
Proceeds from the event go to Friends of the Sacramento Metropolitan Arts Commission for arts and education related initiatives to support the arts.  www.sacmetroarts.org

Raising funds for all the arts through SMAC projects is very important because of the funding cuts they face.  Their funding goes out to many different arts groups in the area.  So, email me to tell me you're in on this fun time!
