Washington Area Lawyers for the Arts
Washington Area Lawyers for the Arts (WALA) was founded in 1983 through the combined efforts of lawyers and artists. The creation of WALA was inspired by the growing awareness that the legal needs of the greater Washington arts community were not being adequately served. Today, WALA provides a broad range of services, including referring artists and arts organizations to one of 450 volunteer attorneys who provide pro bono legal assistance on issues such as copyright, tax-exempt status, leases and contract negotiations. WALA's Arts Mediation Services helps parties reach amicable solutions cost-effectively, without going to court. WALA sponsors workshops and seminars for artists, lawyers and others involved in the arts community offering much sought-after training and education in legal aspects of the arts. WALA received the 1991 Mayor's Art Award for excellence in service to the arts. Today, more than 350 of Washington’s top lawyers and law firms participate as volunteers in WALA’s legal services programs.
I have been using this product for years and find that it works perfectly on my gessoed wood pieces. The biggest complaint I have is that over the years Grumbacher has downsized the size of the bottle, now making it only available in these small, expensive quantities. I would like for them to offer them in a larger size.
I love your soy paints for my crafts. Sadly this product is no longer available at Joanne's or any other craft stores I visit. This paint is true in color, dries quickly, and if you need to cover up a mistake or start over, this paint covers up better than any other brand I have used. Especially your white onion and mushroom are a life saver for all projects. I do not understand why this product is not more popular. I brag about it all the time, especially to the craft stores. If you are a true crafter your paint, is important. Your soy paints are pure quality for all my project, and I am sad to not see them on the shelves anymore! Big Mistake; if only they had tried just one bottle of this wonderful product. That was how I learned how good they were by giving them a try.
