People are always taking photos of artists’ artwork. And at a show, most people never ask if it is OK – which is pretty annoying most of the time. But in this digital age of cellphones and social media sharing, it is inevitable… I am just as guilty as the next person (but I always ask first).

This is the photo I took of my set-up at Art-A-Whirl in the Grain Belt Bottling House this spring:

Now contrast this with what another artist sent me the week after the show:

We are more than happy to let you photograph our artwork when you ask, especially especially when this is what they send you after the show!
