Date: October 6, 2016
Time: 6:30-9:00 p.m.

A special panel is being held to discuss “The Options and Obstacles of Publication Production for Visual and Literary Artists”. Panelists will be addressing such questions as: What are the advantages of producing a print publication? What should an artist consider in making this decision? How are self-publishing vs. traditional publishing different? What are vanity and subsidy publishing? Should I consider print-on- demand? Do I need an ISBN or a Library of Congress Control Number (LCCN)? How does one fund the printing of a publication? What are the costs? What about design, editing and proof reading? What should I know when dealing with printers? How many copies should I have made?

Panelists include:

Bruce Adams An artist, educator, and writer, whose paintings are included in numerous collections. In 2006, in conjunction with a mid-career review at the UB Anderson Gallery, he published a catalog overview of his work, using what was then a unique fundraising method.

Len Kagelmacher As Buffalo Arts Publishing, has designed and published more than a dozen books by and about WNY artists and writers.

Elisabeth Leader A mixed media artist and also the producer and illustrator of two popular children’s books.

Gary Earl Ross An award-winning playwright (The Mark of Cain) and novelist (the forthcoming Nickel City Blues). A retired UB professor, he is also the founder of The Writer’s Den, a small press.
