Art Presence Board Member Tom Glassman exhibits his colorful (and black and white, too) minimalist photography at Pioneer Village from July–October 2015. Join us for the opening reception July 9, 4–6pm.

ABOUT THE ARTIST

TOM GLASSMAN has been shooting with a camera for hundreds of years. (You might notice that he also has quite a sense of humor! And yes, it does show up in his images as well.)
“I attribute my ability ‘to see’ to my advertising background.”  As a former creative director at several ad agencies, Glassman routinely looks for the unusual.
Tom’s first love is still black and white photography, as evidenced by many of the images routinely included in his shows and the monochromatic look of many of his color photographs.
Tom’s wife, Linda, gets most of the credit for his photography career.  She was the one who first encouraged him to pursue it, and over the years, allowed him to abandon her on many of their trips so he could go off and take pictures (while she went shopping).  She also went without diamonds and furs so he could purchase a nice lens now and then.

“Equine Lines,” by Tom Glassman

Tom’s work has shown in a number of galleries and exhibits in Boston, Massachusetts; Portland and Kennebunkport, Maine; Seattle and Kirkland, Washington; California; and of course, Oregon.  His work is in the private collections of many professional photographers, photography instructors, designers, art directors, graphic artists, art instructors, gallery owners, plain old artist-artists (painters, sculptors, etc.), and many of the framers Tom has worked with.  Additionally he teaches photography and fine art printing.
As many people comment on Tom’s brilliant colors, unusual graphic patterns, and striking minimalist approach, it is worth noting that “…what you see is what was really there and what I saw when I took the photograph.”  He does help capture the intense colors by using a polarizer filter.  But…everything was done in the camera.  And although the images you see here were produced with a computer and a professional graphics printer, none of the images were manipulated in any way with any computer imaging software.

Artist Statement

“Pooped Patriots,” Image by Thomas Glassman

First of all, I take photos because it’s fun and because I enjoy it. And even if I weren’t showing my work in galleries, I would still keep taking photographs.
Whenever possible, my primary goal is to try and take a photograph that doesn’t look like a photograph. This might entail anything from recording unusual reflections or abstract lines and patterns to juxtaposing unusual colors or shapes to creating compositions with extreme negative space.
More specifically, what I try to do with photography is to use the camera’s point of view to isolate an object that people are used to looking at everyday so they see it in a whole new way. When people look at my work, I want them to see my images as much as they see my vision.

Finally, I am what you would call a technical photographer. In other words, all my photos are carefully composed and cropped (corner to corner) in the viewfinder before I snap the picture. Everything about my images is deliberate and time-consuming. I use a tripod, bubble level, filters, mirror-lockup, cable release, self-timer, the appropriate f-stop and ex­tremely accurate exposures to create in the camera what I envisioned in my mind.
In other words, when I release the shutter, my images are essentially complete and do not have to be labored over with any image editing software. And while many pho­tographers enjoy all the new tools that today’s digital darkroom offers, my real passion is to be spending time with the camera figuring out how to see something in a completely new and different way.

ABOUT THE PHOTOS

Rockport, image by Tom Glassman

Rockport, image by Tom Glassman

These are real, old fashioned, authentic, honest-to-goodness, genuine photographs.  That means they were not manipulated with any computer imaging software.  Everything was done in the camera.
BORING INFO FOR PHOTO-TECHIES:  I use a Nikon 5000 to scan my film slides into the computer and then print them on acid-free, archival museum paper with archival inks on Epson SC P600/7900 professional graphics printers to Library of Congress archival standards.  (In other words, a fine art digital Giclée print.)
“I still shoot film with a Nikon F4 (circa 1990), Nikon FA (circa 1983), and Nikonos V (circa 1990) underwater camera (great for rain and snow days).  I scan the negative.  I import the file into Photoshop.  I color correct it.  And I print it.  That’s it.  No manipulation.  No layers.  No computer-applied filters or enhancements.”
BORING DIGITAL INFO UPDATE FOR PHOTO-TECHIES:  I also use my 30-year-old manual Nikon lenses on a Nikon D800 and Fuji S5 Pro digital camera – along with a Leica M – shoot RAW, and continue to do everything in the camera with no image manipulation.
AP   1/1  (Artist’s Proof, 1 of 1) Giclée prints of these images may be ordered in any size.

The Return of Orphan Works – Action Needed! http://blogs.soartists.com/ArtMatters/return-of-orphan-works-action-needed/ http://blogs.soartists.com/ArtMatters/return-of-orphan-works-action-needed/#comments Sat, 04 Jul 2015 16:01:58 +0000 http://blogs.soartists.com/ArtMatters/?p=100432 We would like to thank artist Elaine Frenett for bringing this issue to our attention via her connection with the Illustrator’s Partnership of America and other related groups. It is crucial that artists retain the rights to and control over their creative works, and it appears that the US Copyright Office and the US Congress are threatening to take those rights and control from us with a new version of the US Copyright Act. This is not the first time this has been proposed, and twice before the national arts community has managed to fend off this attack on our intellectual/creative property, yet this latest proposal appears to be worse than previous versions. Grass roots activism has gained influence in Washington, DC, and though many of you may not be accustomed to such actions, this is one we hope will motivate you to join with the rest of the creative arts community by writing a letter to the US Copyright Office...and hopefully your state representatives in Congress, too. The information below will fill you in on what they propose and some ideas to help you write your letter. The deadline for submitting your letter is July 23, so there's plenty of time to craft a well-written letter, yet no time to waste, so let's take a few minutes to put down our brushes and pick up our pens to preserve our control over our creations. There is a link to the Copyright Office website where your letter can be submitted under the When and Where heading below. Please read the entire article carefully. We hope the suggestions for your letter will help your own words start flowing so the letters received in Washington will be personal, effective and powerful.

The EU published a US Copyright Office report on this topic, which can be found via a link at the bottom of this article: http://project-forward.eu/2015/06/24/u-s-copyright-office-report-on-orphan-works-and-mass-digitization/

Artists Alert: From the Illustrators Partnership

The Return of Orphan Works

Part 1: “The Next Great Copyright Act”

JULY 1, 2015

For more than a year Congress has been holding hearings for the drafting of a brand new US Copyright Act. At its heart is the return of Orphan Works.

Twice, Orphan Works Acts have failed to pass Congress because of strong opposition from visual artists, spearheaded by the Illustrators Partnership.

Because of this, the Copyright Office has now issued a special call for letters regarding the role of visual art in the coming legislation.

Therefore we’re asking all artists concerned with retaining the rights to their work to join us in writing.

When and Where

Deadline: July 23, 2015

You can submit letters online to the Copyright Office here.

Read the Copyright Office Notice of Inquiry.

Here are the Basic Facts

“The Next Great Copyright Act” would replace all existing copyright law.

It would void our Constitutional right to the exclusive control of our work.

It would “privilege” the public’s right to use our work.

It would “pressure” you to register your work with commercial registries.

It would “orphan” unregistered work.

It would make orphaned work available for commercial infringement by “good faith” infringers.

It would allow others to alter your work and copyright these “derivative works” in their own names.

It would affect all visual art: drawings, paintings, sketches, photos, etc.; past, present and future; published and unpublished; domestic and foreign.

Background

The demand for copyright “reform” has come from large Internet firms and the legal scholars allied with them. Their business models involve supplying the public with access to other people’s copyrighted work. Their problem has been how to do this legally and without paying artists.

The “reforms” they’ve proposed would allow them to stock their databases with our pictures. This would happen either by forcing us to hand over our images to them as registered works, or by harvesting unregistered works as orphans and copyrighting them in their own names as “derivative works.”

The Copyright Office acknowledges that this will cause special problems for visual artists but concludes that we should still be subject to orphan works law.

The “Next Great Copyright Act” would go further than previous Orphan Works Acts. The proposals under consideration include:

1.) The Mass Digitization of our intellectual property by corporate interests.
2.) Extended Collective Licensing, a form of socialized licensing that would replace voluntary business agreements between artists and their clients.
3.) A Copyright Small Claims Court to handle the flood of lawsuits expected to result from orphan works infringements.

In your letter to the Copyright Office:

It’s important that lawmakers be told that our copyrights are our source of income because lobbyists and corporation lawyers have “testified” that once our work has been published it has virtually no further commercial value and should therefore be available for use by the public.

 

So when writing, please remember:

* It’s important that you make your letter personal and truthful.
* Keep it professional and respectful.
* Explain that you’re an artist and have been one for x number of years.
* Briefly list your educational background, publications, awards, etc.
* Indicate the field(s) you work in.
* Explain clearly and forcefully that for you, copyright law is not an
abstract
legal issue, but the basis on which your business rests.
* Our copyrights are the products we license.
* This means that infringing our work is like stealing our money.
* It’s important to our businesses that we remain able to determine
voluntarily how and by whom our work is used.
* Stress that your work does NOT lose its value upon publication.
* Instead everything you create becomes part of your business inventory.

* In the digital era, inventory is more valuable to artists than ever before.

If you are NOT a professional artist:

* Define your specific interest in copyright, and give a few relevant
details.

* You might want to stress that it’s important to you that you determine
how and by whom your work is used.
* You might wish to state that even if you’re a hobbyist, you would not
welcome someone else monetizing your work for their own profit
without your knowledge or consent.


Because this is a complicated issue, we’ll follow up next week with some expanded thoughts of our own.
 
– Brad Holland and Cynthia Turner
for the Board of the Illustrators Partnership
The Illustrators Partnership has filed multiple papers with the
Copyright Office regarding this issue.

I’m in California for a week with my family, but I thought I would pass this notice about a show back home along, something I’d like to see when I get back next week. Artists include:  Betsy Lee Taylor, Jean K Stephens, Cathy Chin, Lanna Pejovic , Denise Heischman , Bob Dorsey, Carol Acquilano, Kathryn Bevier, Gloria Betlem, Alan Singer, Gail Thomas, Amy Stummer, Robert Heischman, Jane O’Donnell, Rebecca DeMarco, Bill Stephens, Jim Mott, Phyllis Bryce Ely, Paula Crawford and more.
This is an exhibition of “plein air” paintings and drawings by regional and national artists invited to submit art all summer long in an ever changing exhibition.  Works will be framed or presented unframed and may even reflect unfinished sketch states as well as fully finished.
The exhibition is designed to encourage artists to get out and paint and present their work without the usual formality and cost of showing.
The gallery will accept new works from our invited artists each Thursday for the duration of the show and so it will “organically grow” throughout the season.

While I was cleaning up my studio last week, I came across some of my red, white and blue paper start that I made my Star Garland with. I decided the stars would look great sewn on a card, and I was right.

I used left over stars from my Star Garland to make this 4th of July card.

I used left over stars from my Star Garland to make this 4th of July card.

This is one of the few projects that went together just the way I thought it would. Nice when that happens.

I wanted my card 5″ x 7″ to fit an A-7 envelope. So, I cut my paper 7″ wide and 15″ high. I wanted an extra 5″ to turn under to cover my stitching. If you don’t mind your stitching showing, or if you want to paste a piece of paper over the stitching, cut the card 7″ wide by 10″.

My paper is 7" wide by 15" high. I have folded it in thirds so my finished card will be 5" by 7".

My paper is 7″ wide by 15″ high. I have folded it in thirds so my finished card will be 5″ by 7″ and fit into a standard A-7 envelope..

I printed “Happy 4th” in the Bermuda Squiggle typeface and colored in the left side of the squiggle in alternating blue and red. I used a dark blue embroidery thread to sew my stars.

Here I have started sewing my stars on my card.

Here I have started sewing my stars on my card.

I laid out my red, white and blue stars on my card and decided where I thought they would look good. With a white card, I thought two red, two blue and only one white set of stars looked really good together.

This photo shows a finished card and the reverse side of one that hasn't been covered up yet so you can see how the stitches look on the reverse side of the card.

Here is a finished card and the back side of one that hasn’t been covered up yet, so you can see how the stitches look on the back side of the card.

I folded two stars together, then sewed them on the card and then another and another. After I sewed the stars, I folded and glued the flap back to cover up the stitching which made for a clean looking card.

Two finished "Happy 4th" cards ready to be put in an envelope and sent.

Two finished “Happy 4th” cards ready to be put in an envelope and sent.

You could write Happy 4th by hand or use another font. I hope this sparks all sorts of ideas for you future cards.

Happy 4th, Candy

Throughout the United States, today’s most innovative businesses are using the arts to help them meet some of their most difficult and vital objectives.

In 2012, Americans for the Arts, the nation’s leading nonprofit organization for advancing the arts and arts education, created The pARTnership Movement to help businesses understand the strategic value of partnering with the arts and build their own successful partnerships.

I am excited to share that The pARTnership Movement’s newly launched essay series provides an insider look at how some of the most prominent businesses in America profit by partnering with the arts. Each of the eight essays illustrates one of The pARTnership Movement’s 8 reasons businesses partner with the arts.

Download Recruit and Retain Talent, the first of eight essays

With insights culled from some of the most celebrated business leaders in the United States, the essays, which will be released throughout 2015 and 2016, provide real-world examples of how partnering with the arts can help businesses of all sizes and industries tell their story, recruit talent, advance corporate objectives, develop a wider consumer-base, engage employees, and build stronger communities.

I hope you will take a look at the first essay in this new series, Recruit and Retain Talent. This essay provides insight about how by partnering with the arts, businesses can attract and retain the talented, motivated people they need in order to gain a competitive edge and outperform the competition.

Mark your calendar for First Friday, August 7th! My newest collection of animal paintings, “The Funny Farm”, is the featured work at Art & Soul Gallery. The opening reception runs from 5-8PM during Ashland’s Art Walk. In addition to 13-14 new whimsical animal paintings (which I am still working away on!), Platt Anderson Winery will be hosting a wine tasting, and animal friendly appetizers, including Miyoko’s Kitchen Cashew Cheeses will be available. If you can’t make the opening, the show opens on August 4th through August 30th. Ten percent of the sales will be donated to Sanctuary One, a care farm in Jacksonville, OR.
