This is notification for a Washington Lawyers for the Arts presentation. This is not a meetup group social event - it will be a lecture which anyone is welcome to attend. The lecture starts promptly at 12. Doors open at 11:45 to allow plenty of time to check in, find your seat, or pay for your ticket if you're that sort of last-minute person.
Gallery Law is a lunchtime presentation on current legal issues that arise when working with art dealers and galleries. Presenter Alison Ivey will cover:
+ consignment of artworks for sale through galleries (both artist to gallery and collector to gallery),
+ fiduciary duties of dealers and gallerists, and
+ the latest on resale royalties.

Alison is also an adjunct professor at Seattle University School of Law where she teaches Law and Business of Art & Cultural Heritage Law. Before joining Vulcan Inc. in 2002, Alison was an associate at the Seattle law firm of Stokes Lawrence, P.S.
