Popped in to Barnes & Noble this afternoon to pick up a copy of Professional Artist Magazine, and was surprised to discover several publications in the art section that I had never noticed before. I didn't have time to look over most of them -- Hubs and I were on our way to meet some friends at a nearby restaurant. So, besides Professional Artist, I bought just one, artblend, whose cover touted articles on copyright and mass production of art in China.
Those two topics hold considerable interest for me; copyright law is a murky jumble of contradictions, but it's essential for all artists to stay informed about changes in it to protect their intellectual property rights. And I definitely want to know more about China's activities, given that the Chinese are notorious for appropriating others' intellectual property, as well as elevating art fraud to a widespread, highly lucrative industry. So there's some good reading ahead this evening.
It would be interesting to do a roundup of all these art magazines in a future post. If you subscribe to or read any art magazines, which ones do you like, or don't like, and why? Please click on Comments, below, to share your views!
