Re: Newest Bylaw draft June 2011

Article 2 - Definition of Scratchboard Art
Section 2.1 - Scratchboard Art is a subtractive medium that involves the use of abrasive tools to directly remove a surface layer of one value (typically dark) to expose a secondary layer of a contrasting value (typically white). The majority of the values within the artwork should be achieved by varying the amount of surface layer that has been removed or left. Reapplying of transparent mediums over the initial scratching is permissible, but the integrity of the underlying scratching should remain visible. Works may be color or black and white.

By definition, I am assuming that any board done with a fiberglass brush, steel wool, eraser or any other tool that does not leave visible scratch marks in the clay, would not be considered scratchboard art?

Thanks Sandra, so does that mean once the society is up and running, to begin with there will be no signature members?

Re: Newest Bylaw draft June 2011

Mark...your graphite work has "subtractive" work done to it with those tools, so yes, it does qualify. I would say most works done on clayboard, whether with ink, w/c, acrylic...whatever...and then have some form of scratching (with any of those tools or others) on it, would be acceptable under that definition.

Irfan...that's right...until the first annual signature jury (probably in March) there will be no SSA or additional MSA.

Sandra...you are a gem!

Not sure why you would read that into it Mark?

We specifically left the work scratching to a minimum so that it would include works that are done with erasers, sandpaper, etc. hence why we chose: subtractive medium that involves the use of abrasive tools and "The majority of the values within the artwork should be achieved by varying the amount of surface layer that has been removed or left" rather than using the word scratching over and over again.

What we are trying to prevent is works that are 90% painted or drawn or whatever with just a few scratches for highlights and effect from being entered. We want the 'scratching' (no matter what you are using for scratching be it steel wool or a scalpel) to be determining the values for the majority of the board. We also want to avoid using words that are brand specific such as clay or ink, as some people work on scratchboard they make themselves which may not be coated with ink or made with clay.

Perhaps you can think of a way to reword the definition in a way that you think would be clearer that works with fiberglass brush and steel wool, etc can be entered, but the other type of works can't?
