Norm Parish

Norm Parish
I am sad to report that Norm Parish, my neighbor for almost 10 years in Georgetown, a good friend, a talented artist, a constant supporter, and one of the key people in the DMV art scene for almost a quarter of a century, passed away today at 6:45PM.

My sincere hugs to Gwen, his partner and wife for the last 25 years.

The DMV has lost a giant; we will miss you Norm, but we also know that you're somewhere in the Universe doing what artists do best: creating!

Fair winds and following seas my friend!

Update:  Please join Gwen Parish and the Family for Norm Parish's final farewell to all of us at his funeral at Unity Church of Germantown, July 13, 2013.

Who owns the photos you take at museums?‏

"A question came up today as I was walking around the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City. People were snapping pictures; others were buying books and posters, T-shirts and all sorts of merchandising.  A friend asked me if they took a picture of a Renoir, a painting that is no longer under copyright, and started selling posters, would they be violating any copyright or other rules?  For that matter, would I have a copyright on that image? This actually brings up a few legal issues.  So let’s take them step by step."
