prunings, rockpiles & pennies

Some recommended reading today:

1. PRUNED is a blog about “landscape architecture and related fields”, which includes earth art. I’ve been browsing through the archives finding treasures like panographies. PRUNINGS I to XX on the sidebar offers many eclectic and fascinating links.

2. Indian rock piles in New England as well as some other archaeological rock art like petroforms are featured at Rockpiles. There are some great links including other related blogs such as in the UK.

3. Anne Marchand is an artist-blogger in Washington, DC. In today’s post in her Painterly Visions “Pennies Per Peek”, Canadian Concept of Artist Remuneration , she writes about CARFAC (Canadian Artists Representation) via the words of Canadian artist Robert Genn.

It is interesting to read another artist’s view. I’ve mentioned here before how I believe in this organization (I’m a member). Artists receive the exhibition fee from many public galleries thanks to CARFAC, and they don’t have to be members. Unfortunately some public galleries ask to waive that fee, so it’s still an issue for CARFAC. Now I’m curious, are exhibition fees not paid in the USA?
