Ken Featherstone who repeatedly made promises but never “fully” delivered. He is involved in many types of artists’ opportunities such as exhibitions, on-line representation, and advertising/editorial/representation. I have had three separate dealings with him. I continued to give things a try, thinking that surely I was mistaken. In the end, clearly, I was not. His emails and messages were extremely angry. After politely responding to his last email request, I received a very unprofessional response that I do not feel appropriate to share here.
Bottom-line, in my dealings with them, neither of these two people were who they seemed to be on the surface.
I got this email a few days ago. I called them to find out more. Yesterday I got a phone call from a women named Alice somewhere in Illinois (HQ are in SF). It sounded all too good…! So I did some more digging and found this article: https://theartistsjd.com/vida-tos/ Not only is the article informative but it is worth reading the the comments left by artists.
A reader sent this in, “Lisa Saltman @saltmanastassoicatesinc (on facebook) a supposed art advisor, sold my pictures to the hotel without my permission. She claims that she took a monograph (Surfland) of my work, ripped it apart, matted and framed it and sold it to this client, cheaply she added. This client just happens to be a Hyatt hotel. Whether this act may or may not be a copyright infringement, it is a gross insult and outrage to me and every artist who struggles to make a living from their practice. It is a misrepresentation of my art and how it lives in the world. This person actually contacted me years before this act with interest in my work. I suppose she found it more lucrative to do things her own way. Do not work with her!”
Anyone else have a comment on this?
