Opps, I missed this one.

Although the Digital Art L.A. was last weekend in LA, the good news that an exhibition of the works are still available.

Digital Art L.A. is a multi-site international digital art expo in the Gallery Row area of Downtown Los Angeles organized by Rex Bruce and L.A. Center for Digital Art (LACDA). The event includes exhibits by area galleries, theatres, and venues near LACDA. Many of these venues will host selected work from major out of area institutions. The centerpiece will be an international new media exhibit of juried submissions hosted by LACDA selected by Howard Fox, curator of contemporary art, L.A. County Museum of Art.

Baron Wolman, Rolling Stone, courtsey of Duncan Miller Gallery

From the recent press release for Baron Wolman from the Duncan Miller Gallery;

Baron Wolman was Rolling Stone magazine’s first photographer and enjoyed unparalleled access to musicians making rock and roll history — Hendrix, Jagger, Joplin, Zappa, Morrison, and countless others. In the late 1960s and early 1970s Wolman photographed 21 covers for Rolling Stone.  His new book is a beautifully printed collection of those 21 actual cover images and the proof sheets from which each cover photograph was taken.

The book is available in a limited-edition version and its price of $350 includes a signed, silver gelatin, 8 x 10 print of any of these 21 Rolling Stone cover images.

Join us at the Beverly Hills Bang & Olufsen store for the world premier book-signing event. Meet Baron, listen to great music on the incomparable B&O sound systems, and enjoy an open bar with Jack Daniels, white wine and Fiji water.
Where: Bang & Olufsen, 369 N Rodeo Drive, Beverly Hills 90210. Easy self-parking is on Brighton just West of Rodeo.

Winkleman on artist-galleries 50-50 split

Posted in Photo Art Business, Photo Galleries, Photography by douglaspstockdale on August 5, 2008

I have decided to open a new tracking catagory for this journal called Photo Art Business, which is where I will accumulate various articles about the Business of Fine Art Photography.

Edward Winkleman (Winkleman Gallery, NY, NY) who wrote today about Selling Solo vs. Working with a Gallery, which is about the gallery-artist releationships, but gets into the reasoning and rational behind the traditional 50-50% commission split between a gallery and an artist. For fine art photographers, a highly recommended read.
