Clovis Art Guild
The Oldest and Best art Association in the Valley
Next meeting is Wednesday February 8, 2012 7:00 p.m. Clovis Veteran’s Memorial Building, 804 4th Street, Clovis CA
Toni Maygar Demonstrates Acrylics My name is Antoinette Magyar, but everyone knows me as Toni. I have been around art my whole life. You might say I was born into it. My mother is an artist in her own right. She spent time giving me the experience of many hours of watching and learning and exposing me to many different styles through private collections and museums. I have been trained in different aspects in the art community from sculpture to interior design. However, my passion is painting. My main medium is acrylics much to my mother’s chagrin (she is into oils). I have studied in college Art History / Life Drawing and Anatomy / and Sculpture. I have taken formal lessons in Portraitures. I have recently been working on Still Lifes and Landscapes. My work has included painting Troumpe ‘Loil in many private homes and businesses in the state. You can see my work on the ceiling of 7 Rodgers Jewelry stores through out the state including the Riverpark store and on the walls of By the Sea Mediterranean Restaurant. My paintings hang on the walls in many private homes in the area. I know that art is an ever-changing medium and I am excited by what the future has in store.

President’s Message Get Ready, Set and Go! The Guild has a lot of exciting things planned for this spring. Our Miniature Works Show is now in place at Sierra Vista Mall and it looks great. A big thanks to Alice Sutton, Jackie McCoy, Fran Leighton, John Roberts and David Dalgety who assisted at the show. The City of Clovis has invited us to take part in their 100th year celebration by putting art by some of our members in the displays in February. In March we change out the art at the window gallery and submit designs for the Old West Show cover contest. In April the Old West Show will be opening; we hope you are all creating art for it and will enter the show. Julianne Smith is organizing some dynamite demonstrations for the coming year beginning with Toni Maygar in Acrylics. We also hope to have some other things planned: workshops, organizing car pools for art hop, some paint outs. Gene and I hope all of you will join in and support these activities.

11 Copyright Myths - by Brad Templeton (reprinted by permission) MYTH NO 6: "If I make up my own stories, but base them on another work, my new work belongs to me." False. U.S. Copyright law is quite explicit that the making of what are called "derivative works" -- works based or derived from another copyrighted work -- is the exclusive province of the owner of the original work. This is true even though the making of these new works is a highly creative process. If you write a story using settings or characters from somebody else's work, you need that author's permission. Yes, that means almost all "fan fiction" is arguably a copyright violation. If you want to publish a story about Jim Kirk and Mr. Spock, you need Paramount's permission, plain and simple. Now, as it turns out, many, but not all holders of popular copyrights turn a blind eye to "fan fiction" or even subtly encourage it because it helps them. Make no mistake, however, that it is entirely up to them whether to do that. There is a major exception -- criticism and parody. The fair use provision says that if you want to make fun of something like Star Trek, you don't need their permission to include Mr. Spock. This is not a loophole; you
can't just take a non-parody and claim it is one on a technicality. The way "fair use" works is you get sued for copyright infringement, and you admit you did copy, but that your copying was a fair use. A subjective judgment on, among other things, your goals, is then made. However, it's also worth noting that a court has never ruled on this issue, because fan fiction cases always get settled quickly when the defendant is a fan of limited means sued by a powerful publishing company. Some argue that completely noncommercial fan fiction might be declared a fair use if courts get to decide
MYTH NO 7: "They can't get me, defendants in court have powerful rights!" Copyright law is mostly civil law. If you violate copyright you would usually get sued, not be charged with a crime. "Innocent until proven guilty" is a principle of criminal law, as is "proof beyond a reasonable doubt." Sorry, but in copyright suits, these don't apply the same way or at all. It's mostly which side and set of evidence the judge or jury accepts or believes more, though the rules vary based on the type of infringement. In civil cases you can even be made to testify against your own interests. Myth no 8 will be covered in next monthâ€™s issue room permitting.
