  1. Partnering with Cinnamon Stephen, J.D. the Seattle Arts Leadership Team (SALT) is hosting its first art law webinar focusing on copyright, an important and widely misunderstood area of law. Hosted by Cinnamon Stephens, a lawyer who concentrates her practice in the areas of art and related intellectual property law, the goal of the webinar is to offer information on basic, relevant legal principles and provide attendees with models and frameworks to build on in everyday interactions. According to Stephens: Urban legends surround Copyright law. Fair use, for example, is a complex issue. An argument exists that copyright protections are obsolete and only benefit large corporate entities. Yet copyright law in many ways offers some of the greatest protection an artist or arts organization can have against infringers with greater resources. The webinar will be an hour and will provide time for questions at the end. Questions can also be submitted in advance. Material from the webinar will be available.

  4. The exhibit encompasses huge variations: from traditional codex-bound books, to those that can only be described as narrative sculptures. Within the artistic genre many subsets exist: collage and assemblage; folded origami pop-ups; hand-drawn, digital, letterpress and silk-screen printing; boxed and unboxed; multiples and one-of-a-kinds … and many more. An equally wide range of materials can be seen: machine and hand-made paper, of course, but also textile, ceramic, acrylic, wood, glass, found objects, salt, cultured biologic medium—even smashed electronics and broken crockery. Inspirations are as varied as the number of pieces—the book as culture, beauty, personal experience, social justice, the environment, and just plain fun.
