Recently, we entertained a group of photography students at the Fidelis studio. This is one of the things we like about our job, because we love to meet new people and enjoy the opportunity to be introduced to new artists and their work. Lots of great ideas were shared and we had the opportunity to answer lots of questions about fine art printmaking and self-publishing art. …Read more
Canadian photographer, Greg Girard has been photographing the many faces of Asia for over two decades. So when I heard that he was leading a photographic expedition to China, I wanted to share the opportunity with you.
If you haven’t guessed, I’m a huge fan. First admiring Greg’s work at the Toronto Art Fair in 2006. Now I get to admire Greg’s over-size photographs in production at Fidelis and on exhibit at Monte Clarke Gallery Vancouver. FYI Greg’s new exhibition opens in Vancouver on December 7th, 2013 running to January 11, 2104.
Not only is Greg an established lens-based fine artist, his assignments for National Geographic magazine include “Can China Go Green?” (June 2011) and “The New Great Walls” (May 2008). Greg has produced four books, and his work has appeared in TIME, Newsweek, and Fortune.

On Linkedin today an artist asked a really good question, that sparked a day-long debate, “Is it correct to call an enhanced inkjet print an original work of art?”. There was a series of responses, many artists saying “no, an inkjet is a reproduction, it doesn’t matter how much its modified”. Others saying “yes, it could be an original”, sighting a problem with the distinction, as it pertains to fine art photographic prints. One artist so accurately put it, “If you ask 100 artists, you’ll get 100 different answers on the subject.”
So I’m asking our Artist Community, what’s your opinion? …Read more
Seth Godin on “What creatives have backwards”. How stepping outside the norm creates a path to success
American Way Magazine calls him, “America’s Greatest Marketer” (which I am in complete agreement). He has over 100,000 followers on G+ and over 190,000 followers on Facebook. His blog is perhaps the most popular in the world written by a single individual.
If you haven’t heard of Seth Godin, I’d like to introduce you to him.
Seth’s blog and best selling books discuss the post-industrial revolution, how ideas spread, marketing, perseverance, education and leadership. As a creative, parent and marketer, so much of what he say rings true for me.
About this video, why I think you should watch it and how it relates to artists …Read more
