Are you confused about whether you really own images of your work? Do you know what to look for in a contract with a gallery or retail shop? Do you know where to find answers to legal questions?

Emerging artists need to know how to protect their work, and established artists sometimes have to negotiate a fair contract with a gallery. The workshop will address the following questions:

  • What are the laws that govern copyright and contracts and how do they affect you?
  • When do you need to copyright your work and how do you do it?
  • What should a good written contract include?
  • How do you recognize a bad contract?
  • What are the best resources for visual artists who need legal advice?
