Beteseb founders Solomon Asfaw and Aleme Tadesse envisioned providing a creative outlet for individuals as well as groups not only to create art, but to also jumpstart a movement for youth to spend their time in more rewarding ways.

Crébillon père introduced her to the theatre and the art of declamation.
In this article, we’ll explore some of the options and discuss a few of the things you might think about while producing your fine art prints.
The biggest reason to sign a print is to show that you approve of it.
Finally, we’re getting to the less discussed topic of producing fine art prints: signing.
I’ve had a few people ask the same questions about where to sign, how to sign, what to sign with, etc.
It’s not that there is anything wrong with the artwork, it simply takes time to align the art with the right individual who will be willing and able to make the purchase.
If the work of art includes the creation date we risk prejudicing the potential buyer against the work unnecessarily.
But the other major benefit to signing your prints is that it helps you to lay claim to your art and can sometimes settle copyright disputes.Even if these things aren’t defined in a strict technical fashion, there are some traditional ways of doing things.Tradition is fine and dandy, but there are also alternative methods to every aspect of signing prints.The potential buyer may find the artwork to be desirable in every way artistically and aesthetically, and I would argue that the age of the artwork shouldn’t make any difference to this buyer.
Unfortunately, I have found age can have an impact on some (not all, but some) buyers.Dear Jason, As a Museum Director, I vehemently disagree with not putting the date created on pieces of work in a portfolio. Because of the complexity of the market, an artist will frequently have to move a work of art through several galleries before it finds a home.
