Ok, folks, so your professors are ignorant. That is ivory tower talk. =
It has no basis in reality. Think about it, do they send in their =
thesis papers or publications with a signature discreetly in the =
index????? I don't think so..... Sign your artwork so everybody can =
learn your name, your art, you. Sign so people can LOOK for your name. =
Sign so you can have copyright protection. =20

>I believe in some galleries there is no name, because it will be added =
to the plate beside the work. But I always put my name large on the =
back.=20

Great, so you can rip the art out of the frame to see who did it?? =
Please sign your work. It is for your protection, identification, and =
reputation as an artist.
