Art Dealers Association of America
Founded in 1962, the Art Dealers Association of America is a non-profit membership organization of the nation's leading dealers in the fine arts. Its purposes are to promote the highest standards of connoisseurship, scholarship and ethical practice within the profession and to increase public awareness of the role and responsibilities of reputable art dealers. ADAA members deal primarily in paintings, drawings, sculpture, graphics and photographs from the Renaissance to the present day. Each ADAA member is an experienced and knowledgeable dealer in the types of art he or she offers for sale. Only a handful of art dealers, all of them in New York City, joined Ralph F. Colin in establishing ADAA. Among the founding members were Alexandre P. Rosenberg, the Association's first president, and Pierre Matisse, president of ADAA from 1964 to 1966. Today, the Association has 175 member galleries in more than twenty-five cities throughout the United States.
I like the White Galaxy Marker very much for writing on dark paper, and I have used it to cover another color when I needed to disguise a mistake or simply change effect.
For example, I bought an ornament with name SCARLETT spelled on it and by covering the last 't', I was able to give this to someone with a cat named SCARLET.
If color to be covered is a paint or other pen color, that can make the other color "stain" the white marker tip. This can be avoided if one is sure first color is dry before trying to cover it with white.
I've been using Koh-I-Noor Rapidograph Technical Pens since 1969. My aunt bought me my first set when I was 12 and I have used them daily ever since. I love the fact that I can mix my ink colors to match my watercolor or my wardrobe and use "Pelikan Drawing Ink A" almost exclusively. Though the inks made by Koh-I-Noor and Winsor Newton are satisfactory.
If you are a beginner, I would NOT recommend purchasing anything smaller than an 0 (0.35 mm). Even as a professional I find cleaning a 4x0 to be a challenge. I work most often with a 2x0, and find them to produce the smoothest flow, if kept clean.
