Below is a response to flyer I was getting information on of a seminar planned here in Platteville. The email can explain it better than I, but we need a quick response if this is going to make. I think it would be good for those of us planning on getting into contracts of any kind regarding our art. I plan on attending if it makes. For $15.00 not a bad deal.


So far I have not had any one sign up for this program. If you were interested and knew of some others that were interested you should contact me asap. I had anticipated a much larger response to this event, the details are below.

I would need to have 5 people sign up by Friday to hold this workshop. Beth Russell is very knowledgeable and is also able to talk about copyright and trademark issues as they relate to artists.

Let me know ASAP.
