Art Scams and Advice for Artists

I have been receiving a few emails that start with "Hello, I found your artworks on the internet search" and a "copyright infringement lawsuit" more here on my blog.

And watch out for this little doozy listed on this site: "scammer will send you an email saying your website has won an award for it's beautiful design and such. Attached to the email will be an image representing the award and the scammer will ask you to put this image on your website's homepage and link it to the scammer's site. "

Bogus Art Fairs/Biennials, or requests to submit to galleries (usually they are vanity galleries that charge hefty fees)

Did you know: " there are dozens of legal organizations which have as their sole goal to provide free legal services to nonprofit arts organizations, as well as to artists who can't afford legal services" This Art Scams Website has oodles of links for Artists, including the lastest scams, advice for artists, etc.

Corner Cone Curry Review

Saag Paneer and Tikka Masala

I can't claim to be a culinary expert, but I have been eating curries since the day my Uncle Iqball (we fondly called him uncle iky)  showed me how to make a curry when I was a little girl, and being British and being that Tikka Masala was declared  by Foreign Secretary Robin Cook now a true British national dish, I do know a good curry when I taste one.

I'll be honest I was a bit skeptical about the price of the Corner Cone take out menu, but after finally giving it a try I've changed my mind.
 It's worth it.
There are many variations of Tikka Masala, and while this one isn't as hot or as creamy as some I've had in the UK, it was top notch as far as quality, quantity (plenty of chicken pieces) and flavour.
 The serving portion for the main dish is enough for two but not enough rice, so if you buy one meal to share you may need to make extra rice or order extra.

The Winter Corner Cone hours are:Thurs, Fri, Sat 11AM-7PM and Sun Noon-4PM.
