  1. This broadcast may be one of the most important ones you’ve ever done, Jason. While we always had attorneys to parse copyright laws at the newspaper where I worked, as an individual artist I always wonder if the law is the same for those of us in the creative arts. Thank you so much! Mary Manning

  2. The first time I remember being really affected by art, I was in the park and decided to stop at the Art Museum in St. Louis, where I lived a short distance from the museum. It was starting to rain, and I went and and walked around for a while, looking mostly at the paintings in the permanent collection. I had a few favorites, but I don’t remember which ones I looked at that day.

    I only remember that when I came out everything looked different. I was not sure if it was the effect of the rain on the leaves and grass, or the art work that I had just seen. It was like I just woke up and saw the park for the first time. I was about 16 at the time, and I did not start painting until I was in my thirties. I think that the visual act of looking at the world is almost completely different than the mostly verbal world. Writing or talking about it is like a different language than looking. Sometimes I think we talk to much about art and that a lot of these words don’t really add anything of value. I look at art and make art mainly to wake up myself and possibly others.

  3. Hi Jason, I enjoyed this broadcast. I’m wondering about a problem that occurred with me a year ago. I left five photo’s at a new art gallery. They told me that they would let me know if they would be able to use my art. So, I checked in the studio every other month. To my surprise the gallery wrote on the front that they were closing in a month, after the year was almost over. I went into the gallery and asked for my photos back. They looked and said that they could not find them. Am I out of luck, or do I have a way to find out who took my photos. A week later I went there and asked again. I asked if I could speak to the lady who I gave the photos to, they said that they had asked already. So, should I just forget about it, even though it still hurts me that the gallery wasn’t honest. What do you think Jason? Shalom, Esther Pearlman

  4. This was very helpful, thank you! I’ve been through some copyright infringement before, and this webinar caused me to do a Google image search. Guess what I found? Yep. Someone copied my stuff! Grrrr. I’m a 3-D glass artist, so it costs $35 for each piece, rather than a group of images. More expensive, but worth it.
