Did you get an email from “Colour in Your Life TV Show” today?

Colour in Your Life

(images appear on scammers email)


For the third time in 6 years, I was contacted by an Australian “artist” named Graeme Stevenson OAM (Order of Australia?) and his “TV Show” Colour in Your Life.

It seemed like a scam the first time around, but the second time, I wrote back, and he called, all the way from Australia.  Stevenson told me that for a mere $6000, he would create a show around me and my work.

Knowing that “pay to play” is unethical, and PBS would not be involved with something so egregious, I contacted them.  Here is the tread, with their response, the second paragraph highlights their answer.

Dear Andrea,

Thank you for writing to PBS.

A number of businesses and charities have contacted us to ask us about a purported relationship with producers of various television programs carrying titles such as American Milestones, The Journal, Biography, Giving Back, Learning About, and Vision Media or programs introduced by Joan Lunden, Hugh Downs, or other celebrities. Based upon representations made by the producers, the businesses are sometimes led to believe that the producers are associated with PBS and that PBS intends to distribute or otherwise endorse their programming.

PBS wishes to clarify that it is not associated with and does not endorse, distribute programming for, review underwriting for or otherwise have any business relationship with the programs named above. It is also important to note that PBS producers do not solicit fees from individuals or organizations in return for inclusion in their programs.

Other programs that PBS is not associated with include: American Milestones, American Artists Television, American Review TV, Biography, Business Break TV, Business Trends, Eco Planet TV, Event Media TV, Evergreen Entertainment, Family Television Studios, Food For Thought TV, Giving Back, Global Learning Series, Global Television Studios, Great America (with Hugh Downs), Health Line (with Joan Lunden), Healthy Path, Heroes of Hope, Infinity Media Group, In Focus (with Martin Sheen), Insights, The Journal, Lifeline, National Report Series, Paradigm Media Group, Platinum Group, PMG, PMGTV, Public Television Distributors, Roadshow Productions, Trivue Entertainment, United Media Communications Group, Vision Media, Vision Media Television, VM Television, VT Media, VT Media Productions, or World Progress Report.

In addition, PBS is not a production entity; we do not assist in the direct production of programs. We acquire previously completed programming or enter into production agreements with a variety of independent producers, and we only work with experienced production entities.

Thank you for contacting PBS and I apologize for this misunderstanding.

Message: Hi, I was contacted by a Graeme Stevenson regarding being on his show “Colour in your LIfe”, pitching his show as appearing on PBS stations throughout the United States, and asking for $6000 to be on the show.
This seems more like an advertisement to me, and not editorially sound or ethical, not something I felt PBSwould get behind.
This is why I am writing you today. I have not found anything about his show being on PBS, and feel it is a scam. Here are some links: https://www.colourinyourlife.com.au/
Please advise,

All artists, please, check the legitimacy of every “offer” you get for exposure.  If you have to pay for it, it is likely, not legitimate.

Be careful out there.

Street Art for ACLU: Artsy Benefit Auction 2017

Here is some information from the page on Artsy for the ACLU auction:

Street Art for ACLU: Benefit Auction 2017

Bidding closes Apr 30 7:00 PM EDT

ACLU of Southern California + Artsy present Street Art for ACLU: Benefit Auction 2017, featuring Shepard Fairey, Colette Miller, Knowledge Bennett, and more.

For nearly 100 years, the ACLU (American Civil Liberties Union) has been our nation’s guardian of liberty, working in a multitude of ways to preserve the individual rights and liberties that our system of governance was established to provide. In the current political climate, the importance of the ACLU’s efforts is manifold. Art, specifically street art, has long functioned as a political tool—even impacting international politics in profound ways.

We have gathered over forty significant contemporary artists—the large majority of them street artists—to raise awareness for the ACLU and generate support for the organization’s invaluable efforts.

Bidding will be open exclusively on Artsy and will close at 4:00pm PST on April 30th, 2017 (7:00pm ET).

Here is the link to the auction.
