ArtWeb.net Soon to Add Artist Prints POD Services

Colin Mansell, founder and owner of ArtWeb.net announced yesterday that the development work to add art print services to the ArtWeb.net  site is underway and will be ready for testing in about a month.

The primary prints format will be fine art paper, 100% cotton, single-sided, acid free, woolen felt textured, archival quality paper, printed on 285 – 315 GSM paper depending on where in the world the buyer is ordering from. Artweb.net will also be selling prints on canvas and are  looking into offering postcard print options and printing onto acrylic.

All of the formats will be optional to each artist member when they upload their image files to their site profile. The images artists upload will be checked for quality before they become visible on the site, to make sure the jpegs are high enough resolution to produce a quality print.

Artweb.net has decided to move ahead with two print partners, one in the USA and one in Canada. Here are their web links for your reference and review of their credentials and approach to quality:

As Artweb.net continues to expand globally, the site owner is currently investigating possible print partners for the UK, Europe and Australia.

Art Movement: Cynical Realism


The painting above, by Fang Lijun is an example of Cynical Realism, a contemporary movement in Chinese painting that began in the 1990s in Beijing and has become one of the most popular Chinese contemporary art movements in mainland China. The art movement Cynical Realism arose through the pursuit of individual expression by Chinese artists that broke away from the collective mindset that existed since the Cultural Revolution. The major themes of Cynical Realism tend to focus on socio-political issues and events since Revolutionary China(1911) to the present, usually with a humorous and post-ironic take on a realist perspective and interpretation of transition that Chinese society has been through, from Communism to today’s modernization.

Examples of art associated with Cynical Realism include the “bald head” paintings of Fang Lijun, Liu Wei, and Yue Minjun. View more in the Museum of Chinese Contemporary Art on the web.

GLOW: Art in the Public Realm

Primal Source for Glow 2008 by Usman Haque

Glow is a dusk-to-dawn art event on the beach and adjacent areas in Santa Monica, California.  The first Glow premiered on July 19, 2008 and attracted over 200,000 people.  Over 100 artists participated in 27 projects that spanned genres, technology and content–all with some orientation toward engaged participation with the diverse audience, from the most seasoned art world members to the general public, local residents, and international tourists.  The context of Santa Monica’s fabled beach, the power and allure of the Pacific Ocean and compelling contemporary art, all savored during the hours when museums and galleries sleep, made for a clamorous poetic experience.

 shapednoise for Glow 2010 by Céleste Boursier-Mougenot
Glow 2010 occurred on September 25 and attracted 150,000 people to the Santa Monica beach.  Projects by internationally renown artists (Céleste Boursier-Mougenot, Rafael Lozano-Hemmer and Yoshua Okón) and a strong contingent of Los Angeles-based artists included everything from highly advanced technological installations providing for intense audience interactive, to the purely accoustical pleasures of an accordion orchestra playing while riding the historic Santa Monica Pier Carousel.  The twenty projects included approximately 100 artists, with 50 musicians and dancers alone participating in a procession and music circle on the beach.

Glow 2011 received a salute from Americans for the Arts.

Glow is produced by the City of Santa Monica and the Santa Monica Arts Foundation.  www.glowsantamonica.org

The Museum of Virulent Experience and DystoRpia: Calls for Artist Submissions

FoolishPeople is currently inviting submissions from artists working in all mediums to create artworks and installations for their forthcoming exhibition, Virulent Experience, a unique collaboration between Conway Hall and FoolishPeople.

This is a fantastic opportunity to showcase your work to a wide audience in an historic Central London venue throughout August 2012.

Virulent Experience explores the evolution and devolution of ethics, morals and the impact to the mind, imagination and free will of humans via a fictional future version of London on the eve of the  Olympics.

FoolishPeople will transform the historic Conway Hall – a landmark of London’s independent, intellectual, political and cultural life – into The Museum of Virulent Experience, housing the entire banned index of thoughts, emotions and desires in an age where Information Prohibition has begun.

They are looking for artists working in any medium to create a series of works that exist within the narrative and fictional world of the Museum of Virulent Experience. They will also accept proposals for completed works that fit within the context and are pertinent to the piece.

All artists featured within the Virulent Experience exhibition will be included in the exhibition book published by Weaponized, this further explores the themes and context of the project.

Please contact art@foolishpeople.org to obtain the full artist’s brief.



 Fluid New Media Lab is a New York City-based project that supports, produces and promotes the creative works of emerging artists working in new media and beyond. Their newest Call for Artist Submissions for media that relates to the concept of DystoRpia–a neologism that mixes the Latin root torpere with the word dystopia. It is a critical view of society as anti-utopian community with torpid visions of a vaguely utopian root. Link: http://fluid.localproject.org/openCallDystorpia.pdf

Jackson Junge Gallery, Chicago, Immediately Seeking Artist Submissions

Apocalypse 2012 : Genesis 2013


Jackson Junge Gallery is immediately seeking artists’ submissions for an upcoming juried exhibition titled “APOCALYPSE 2012 : GENESIS 2013”.   It is a common belief that both Nostradamus and the Mayan Calendar predict 2012 as the year that life, as we currently know it, will come to an end.  If these doomsday predictions were to become a reality, the dawn of a new era would be upon us.

Artists in all media are encouraged to submit any work, or sketches and supporting documentation for proposals of future work, that gives their artistic interpretation of what this apocalypse would look like or, more importantly, looking forward to what a new world might resemble.  Some occurring themes might include:

-      New Relationships/Attitudes Between People of the World

-      Changes in Communication

-      Political Revolution

-      A Change in Environment or Atmosphere

-      The Anticipated New Landscape or Architecture

Any interpretive pieces with environmental, moral, political or socially relevant tones will be welcomed.   Priority and preference will be given to new works of art.  This exhibit will begin in September of 2012 and run in conjunction with Chicago Artist Month.

Please send jpegs, title, medium, size, price and a brief description of how your piece relates to the theme of the exhibit to support@j2gallery.com or mail disk to Jackson Junge Gallery 1389 N. Milwaukee Ave.  Chicago, IL  60622 no later than June 21, 2012.  Artist will be notified by July 1, 2012 if their work has been selected to be included in the exhibit.
