Artist Paper

Artist Investigation Paper

Our current studio focus is on value–how light/how dark something is. We’re studying light as a visual force that activates objects and defines space. In this paper, you will investigate 3 artists and explore their use of value. While they may work in a range of media (not just watercolor) they share an appreciation for the power of value in visual art.

Please note that several of these artists are figure painters and their work may depict nude models. If this is an issue in any way, let me know.

Three Artists: Start with the suggested links, then explore beyond.

1) Wendy Artin—watercolor

To start: check out her website and the Canadian Bravo Arts and Minds documentaryWendy Artin (Links to an external site.)Links to an external site.

2) David Bjurstrom—graphite drawings

Check out his website & Oregon ArtBeat video—2nd segment (begins 8 minutes in)

https://www.pbs.org/video/oregon-art-beat-season-6-episode-19/ (Links to an external site.)

3) Plus one more . . . choose from list

Caravaggio Andrew Wyeth (watercolor)

Rembrandt Edward Hopper (watercolor)

Georges de la Tour Artemisia Gentileschi

Museum websites and art history texts discuss these famous painters.

Method

Research the artists, look at their work, note how they describe (or art historians and critics describe) their artmaking process.

For each artist, select an artwork that demonstrates their use of value. In your discussion, refer to the image and support your ideas with specific examples.

Attach images of the artwork examples at the end of the paper (in addition to your written discussion). There will be three artwork examples, one per artist.

See formatting guidelines (below) for information on how to lay out the paper, how to label artwork examples, and how to cite sources.

Questions to Consider

Required

How is the artist relevant to our studio focus on value and the action of light?

How do they handle their darks and lights (what’s noticeable or striking)?

How does this affect the artwork (add descriptive or expressive impact)?

Choices! Respond to any of these questions or make up your own:

How did this artist change or expand your understanding of value?

What does it make you want to try in your own work?

What’s important to the artist? What are they in love with/obsessed with/curious about?

What’s a quote that struck you as interesting and why?

How do they make their art? What materials and methods?

An artist hopes to bring some kind of meaning to the work–something for the viewer to experience and make their own meaning out of. What does the artwork bring up for you?

What do you like or dislike about the work and why?

Formatting Guidelines

The paper will consist of a heading, a body of discussion, one to two pages of artwork examples, and source citations.

HEADING is to be single-spaced and take up no more than 4 lines of the page.

BODY, or written discussion, is to be 3 full pages to 4 pages. The written text is to be double-spaced with 1” margins.

IN ADDITION to the 3 full to 4 written pages, attach one or two pages with an example of each artist’s artwork. Refer to the images to support your ideas. Label image with artist, title, year, materials (watercolor on paper, for example) and the source (the museum or artist’s website, for example). You may not be given all of this info, include as much as you can.

Painting examples must be large enough to show detail. Images must be one-third of a page or bigger.

If you summarize, use quotes or state facts, cite the source as follows: Author, Date, Book/Journal Title or Name of Site. (Oregon Art Beat 2005, Season 6, Episode 19, for example). You can also use a link: Author, Date, Title, Retrieved from: cite URL.

Canvas Assignment Deadline Info

Artist Investigation Papers must be submitted on Canvas to be accepted. Email attachments will not be graded.

Online assignments are due by 11:59 pm on the deadline date provided.

The assignment will stay open for a short period past the deadline. During this time, late assignments may be submitted. The late penalty will be up to 25% of the total possible.

Once the assignment is closed, submissions will not be accepted.

Good to Know

Conversational tone is fine, in fact, preferable, to a formal academic (impersonal) report. This is a response paper, offer personal ideas /opinions and back them up with examples.

Respect intellectual/creative property: give credit to the artist or author. Cite your source.

Avoid ”filler” biographical info. If interesting, give it a brief mention. Avoid lingering on where they went to high school or lists of exhibitions and awards.

Focus on the questions and examine the artwork. That’ll fill your pages, easy.

Discussion Reply- Response 1-2 Paragraphs With 1-2 References

At Publix Grocery Store customers feel welcome; they certainly receive the top service they are looking for. Publix raises the bar providing the best quality products with outstanding service. During holidays the cookie decorations and entertaining ideas seem to be appealing to customers and many of them post it on social media. “Vivid information is more likely to hold the viewer’s attention and excite the imagination. It also results in improved customer understanding of the service. Because service attributes are intangible, this improved understanding is critical to a customer’s ability to evaluate the quality of the service and to compare it to other options” (Winner & Dhar, 2011, p. 455).

“Every day, consumers are helping shape your brand image on social media. While you certainly can’t control what people say, you can encourage your customers to be a force for good. Build a community of brand champions by identifying and empowering loyal customers” (The receptionist, n.d., para. 7). One way to help build the brand in social media is by reviewing customer’s comments and feedback. Also, answering customers questions and concerns makes customers feel the company have been taking their opinions into considerations.

From my personal experience, I tried once to apply at Publix because I always heard great things about the company. I had management experience and I was looking to find a management position. When I visit the store to apply they told all management positions are filled internally because they promote within. Even though I was a bit disappointed I believe it is a great strategy because employees feel appreciated. I also heard about the stock options Publix provides to its employees, which is a way for employees to feel that their job is impacting the organization and also each employees’ financial future. “Engaged employees feel a strong emotional bond with the organization that employs them. This is associated with people demonstrating a willingness to recommend the organization to others and commit time and effort to help the team succeed” (Mike, 2016, para. 7). Publix’s Instagram contains food recipes and inspirational ideas for customer. Social media has become a major advertising channel and Publix should continue to keep taking advantage of the opportunity to continue building strong relations and its brand reputation.

Peer 1

Tobacco Free Florida refers to the Florida’s education program that aims at helping tobacco users quit. The program includes helpful strategies, facts about nicotine as well as motivational information that powerfully encourages a tobacco-free life (Tobacco Free Florida, n.d.). Meanwhile, a range of media channels plays an increasingly important role in promoting the mentioned program. More specifically, social media sites, such as Facebook and Twitter, are extremely popular today, especially among the younger generation, which creates a comprehensive platform for raising awareness about the issue at hand and advertising the program’s website (Jane, Hagger, Foster, Ho, & Pal, 2018). Zika Free Florida is another program that provides help and consultation to prevent development of Zika, disease that develops due to a mosquito-borne virus. Instagram and YouTube are another powerful tool to promote the agenda. The format of a video can have a significant effect upon a viewer evoking a strong emotional response. Instagram presents a visually appealing source of receiving information that is readily used by many users around the world, especially by those who like to travel to foreign countries and do not know what exactly one should expect.

Childhood obesity is another important public concern that requires special attention in health policy development. Promoting awareness about the peril associated with childhood obesity is pivotal for maintaining the nation’s health and decreasing the burden of chronic diseases. Social media campaigns may help in this regard. Again, the use of Instagram may trigger the interest of policymakers, while providing parents with the necessary material aids (Edney et al., 2018). It should be noted that such social media as YouTube and Facebook may serve as a source of social support.The posts and videos in media challenge may contain information about the ramifications related to childhood obesity, which can help a user make a change in their lives. They may illustrate examples of how others have already achieved positive results, thereby increasing individual’s awareness about the effective strategies and health promotion techniques (Mason, Gardner, Outlaw, 2016). Users see that they are not alone with this program and may track each other’s progress getting inspired and motivated. Thus, social media can be considered as an active agent in raising awareness and encouraging to make a positive change in one’s lifestyle or environment.

Reflect on Florida’s current health education programs such as Zika Free Florida, Tobacco Free Florida and consider what part the media plays in such disease prevention programs. Identify a specific public health issue that you believe needs to be highlighted in health policy and based on your textbook readings discuss how social media can be used as a health promotion tool to improve public awareness on the selected topic.

Perpetual inventory system is the most commonly used amongst large retail stores such as Amazon. Perpetual inventory system records every inventory that is purchased and sold at that moment as well as calculated every business transaction. Most large retailer companies used perpetual inventory because they can collect large amount of data to make this system possible. Periodic inventory system is used amongst smaller retailer stores to track inventory. Periodic inventory system does not track or record inventory right away instead the total of inventory is calculated at the end of the period, which can be on a monthly basis.

One example of the perpetual inventory system is a company purchased $200 worth of ear buds, and each ear bud cost $50. The company sold two ear buds, which leave them with two set of ear buds. Each time the company sells an ear bud, the system calculated the sale and record how many ear buds were left. In this case, the system automatically tracks how much inventory is on hand. On the other hand, if the company uses periodic inventory system, then they would have to perform a physical count of the inventory on hand. In this case, depending on the size of the company, some retailers might prefer perpetual inventory system because it tracks the inventory automatically. However, the disadvantage is that tracking inventory can be short because it does not consider stolen products. Overall, depending on the size of the company and the cost of the product, most company might use wither perpetual or periodic inventory systems.

A perpetual inventory system keep detailed records of the each inventory purchase and sale cost. The system shows the inventory on hand for each item. Similar to a boutique that keeps inventory of items such as shoes, shirts, and pants. When an item is bought like a pair of shoes, the inventory should show one less pair of shoes. The cost of goods sold each time a sale happens is also determine.

The systems do not keep detailed inventory records of goods on hand throughout the period. Costs of the goods are determined at the end of the accounting period periodically. At the beginning of the accounting period the cost of good is determine and then add to the cost of goods purchased. Subtraction the cost of goods on hand at the end of the accounting period.

The systems use a daily log of items sold on as they are being sold. It’s typically used for stores those sales expensive items. Missing items will hurt the stores financially so it is important for them to track everything as they come in and as they go out.

Periodic systems are used typically for stores that sale cheap items such as the dollar stores. Keep track of cheap items would be too costly on a daily basis. Tally up everything at the end of the month is an easier way to keep track.

The three cost flow methods are:

first-in, first-out (FIFO), last-in, first-out (LIFO) and average-cost. FIFO assumes that the earliest goods purchased are the first to be sold, LIFO assumes the latest unites purchased are the first to be sold, and the average-cost method uses the weighted unit cost to allocate the cost of goods available for sale to ending inventory and cost of goods sold.

FIFO – earliest goods purchased are the first to be recognized in determining costs of goods sold-in line with the physical flow of merchandise. Looking at the ending inventory and starting with the unit cost of the most recent purchased items back to the earliest items is how Income is calculated. FIFO assumes goods were sold at the most recent prices and purchased at the earliest cost which produces a higher net income result.

LIFO – latest goods purchased are the first to be recognized in determining costs of goods sold-less likely to be in line with the physical flow of merchandise. Looking at the ending inventory and starting with the unit cost of the earliest goods available for sale to the most recent is the way Net income is calculated by. Assuming goods were sold at the earliest prices and purchased at the most recent cost which produces a lower net income result is LIFO. Some companies choose LIFO to lower their income tax liability and to postpone paying taxes.

The costs of goods available for sale based on their weighted-average unit cost are Average-cost. Cost of goods available for sale is divided by the total unit available to get the weighted average unit cost. Ending inventory is the units left are multiplied by the unit cost to get the total cost of the remaining inventory. The difference of the ending inventory and original cost of goods available is cost of goods sold. Average-cost averages out changes in cost or pricing such as inflation so the net income is steadied and more accurate.

Respond to…

As I mentioned in the first discussion for this week. First in – first out(FIFO) and last in – first out (LIFO). FIFO is when the “company charges to cost of goods sold the cost of the earliest goods on hand prior to each sale” (Kimmel, 2019). Which is better understood in the terms that the earliest purchased goods are the first to be sold. LIFO is when the “company charges to cost of goods sold the most of the most recent purchase prior to sale” (Kimmel, 2019). This way is more know as the latest purchased goods are the first ones sold. Adding to that, average- cost methods “allocates the cost of goods available for sale on the basis of the weighted-average unit cost incurred” (Kimmel, 2019), the formula associate with the average-cost method is Cost of Goods Available for Sale ÷ Total Units Available for Sale = Weighted-Average Unit Cost.

FIFO is best related to a grocery store. They want to advertise the product that was the first in to get it out and consumed before it expires and has to be thrown away. This is opposite for LIFO like the retail work where the newest product brought in is what stores want to sell over their old items that are at a clearance price.

Changes are constantly changing so it important that companies stay ontop of the market and price their items accordingly.

Comparative Advantage, Tariffs, Quotas, Subsidies Problem Set

Problem 1.

Let’s assume there are only 2 countries that produce 2 good. More specifically, suppose that the United States (US) and the United Kingdom (UK) each have 2 units of productive resources, 1 used to produce Wine, the other Cloth. The US can produce 40 units of Wine with 1 unit of productive resources and 40 units of Cloth with 1 unit of productive resources. The UK can produce 20 units of Wine with 1 unit of productive resources and 10 units of cloth with 1 unit of productive resources. Using this information, please answer the questions below:

*Who has an absolute advantage in the production of Wine? Cloth?

*Who has a comparative advantage in the production of Wine? Cloth?

*Given specialization, what is production before trade? After trade?

*What are the gains from trade?

*What is the “range” of potential exchange rates between US and UK?

Problem 2

Suppose that in Japan, without a tariff 10,000 cars will be sold per year at an equilibrium price of $20,000. With a $5,000 tariff, supply decreases such that 8,000 cars are produced at $22,500 per car.

*Use a supply and demand diagram to graphically illustrate the example above.

*Why is the increase in price less than the tariff?

*Who bears the burden of the tariff?

*What are government revenues from the tariff?

*What is the “dead-weight loss” associated with the tariff?

Problem 3

Graphically explain the negative effects of quotas. How about subsidies?

Problem 4
Each year, consumers in a small country purchase 1 million pounds of sugar at the global price of $1.50 per
pound. Domestic firms produce 500,000 pounds and domestic consumers imports the remainder. Policymakers of the world’s major supplier of sugar begin an export-subsidy program that rewards firms for exporting sugar. This program causes the global price of sugar to drop to $1 per pound. The domestic quantity demanded in the small country climbs to 1.3 million pounds, and the domestic quantity supplied falls to 300,000 pounds.

1. Draw a diagram of the small-country market for sugar under free trade, and with the export subsidy in place.

2. Calculate the loss of domestic producer surplus and the increase in domestic consumer surplus.

3. What is the total value of the subsidy in the small-country market?

4. Can you identify any deadweight losses?

Problem 5

Consider the following situation for a nation in a small country setting that has an import quota on men’s shirts.

With quota

Free trade

Price

$45

$30

Quality purchased

1 million

1.2 million

Domestic quantity supplied

400,000

300,000

Quota

600,000

None

(a) Illustrate the effects of the quota in a supply and demand framework.

(b) Indicate in your diagram and calculate:

i. The loss of consumer surplus

ii. The gain in domestic producer surplus

iii. The deadweight losses

iv. The quota rent
