MoMA launches Louise Bourgeois website

www.MoMA.org/bourgeoisprints

The Museum of Modern Art has launched a major website Louise Bourgeois: The Complete Prints & Books

This website will eventually contain  3,500 images documenting the complete prints and illustrated books of Louise Bourgeois (1911–2010), most of which are in the collection of The Museum of Modern Art. Completion of the website is expected in 2015.

In 1990, Bourgeois donated a complete archive of her printed work to MoMA. That archive will be fully available on the new website by 2015. Presently, the site represents 400 works on the themes of Spiders and printed Fabric Works. These will be supplemented each year, and organized by such themes as Abstraction, Body Parts, Motherhood & Family, Objects, Nature, and Words, among others.

With such a vast collection of Bourgeois prints to be documented, publishing a traditional catalogue raisonné in book format was impractical, requiring seven or eight volumes with limited availability, while the website catalogue is geared to the general art public. Moreover, interactive digital media allows for features that provide a vivid look at the artist’s creative process. These include searches by theme, publisher and printer, and technique, as well as an “Evolving Composition Diagram,” in which viewers immediately grasp a composition’s development. This diagram is enhanced by a pioneering “Compare Works” mode, where two sheets can be placed side-by-side to compare and contrast, with a “Zoom” feature  for studying intricate details.

A Thank You From ArtStack

I hope he doesn’t mind that I posted his email(below). I’m glad to have my blog noticed by a large and popular site like ArtStack. The note of appreciation and the help getting my ArtStack *follow button* in my sidebar was unexpected! This is the email I received:

Online Video Conference Lecture Series: The Art Scene Outside The Center

Last week, my blog post on Online Courses for Artists received more interest than I had expected, so I know that there is an interest with my readers and followers in online educational opportunities. Some may be seeking educational art opportunities for expanding their knowledge base, while others may be interested in models for creating their own online courses. So when I learned of this lecture series, I knew that I wanted to share the information–

The Art Scene In Different Places Out Of The Center-Nicola Trezzi

The next online course: THE ART SCENE IN DIFFERENT PLACES OUT OF THE CENTER

Lecturer Nicola Trezzi- is the US editor of Flash Art International and curator of Prague Biennale
February 18th - March 11th 2013, the course will present 4 video conferences on Mondays at 7PM CET
Application deadline: February 24th, 2013
Course fee: 90 €  Register Here.
During his four meetings Nicola Trezzi will present the art scene in four different countries: Indonesia, Sweden, Romania and Israel.  These presentations will try to embrace the entire artistic community, which means considering not only the work of the artists but also curators, gallery owners and collectors. Through this “enlarged” scope Trezzi will give a deeper idea of reality that is not only globalized but also ever more interconnected and de-centralized. At the same time each session will always underline the connections with this so-called “peripheral” countries and the mainstream. The mainstream will be mostly New York, where Trezzi is currently based.

Anonymous Drawings 2013 / Exhibition
Deadline for submissions: January 31 (postmark)
Application fees: none

Call for submissions:

Drawings by international artists will be presented anonymously in an exhibition at the Uferhallen Berlin in March 2013. The physical exhibition is preceded by an open call for participation on the Internet. 800 works will be selected for the exhibition. The age, biography or gender of the participants will not be requested and do not play any role in the selection.

The only formal rule: the maximum size of the exhibited drawings is 29,70 – 42,00 cm (A3), which equals about 11 x 16 in inches.

All the drawings are available for a symbolic unit sales-price of 150 Euro each. For each drawing sold, the artists receive 100 Euro – the rest will be used for the partial financing of the project.

The given unit sales-price should not be seen as a real market price, but as a place-holder for any conceivable amount of money.

Unsold drawings will be archived or returned to the artists.

The artist’s anonymity can only be revealed by a sale: the buyer takes the drawing right off the wall and the empty space left behind will be marked with the artist’s full name and point of origin.

More information and the application guidelines for download here: http://www.anonyme-zeichner.de/1/call-for-entries/

Deadline for submissions: January 31 (postmark) / no portfolios requested. no application fees for the artists.  www.anonyme-zeichner.de

Supadupa Online Boutique

A few days ago, I received an email containing a link and an invitation to sign up to promote my services. I followed the link– and before I could even see the site style or what others were promoting to get a sense of it, they required my credit card information. I’m not going to do that. That’s old school.

The Supadupa site allows you to try their site before committing to any form of payment. Why would you want to do it any other way?

On Supadupa  you set up your online boutique free, no credit card required. Once you get your shop going, then there are upgrades options for expansion. Supadupa is all about handmade everything!

Perhaps you have art pieces that fit Supadupa, and opening a free boutique on the site will bring you in contact with a new market for your work. Have a look.

Colour In Your Life- Australian Art TV Show, Art Shop and Artist Community

Table banner_v2

Colour In Your Life- Australian TV Show, Art Shop & Artist Community

Colour In Your Life is a web site that is run by Artists for the purpose of building a ‘Library of the minds of Artists’. The site enables investors, educators, students, teachers and people all over the world to have access to the enormous creative energy that is part of the minds of right-brained people.

Art and what it does for our society is incredibly important to the spirit and the souls of all that see it. Forty percent of the people on this planet are supposedly right-brained. Unfortunately we all live in a left-brain world; a cradle to grave mentality. We will only be able to change this if we can find a place where we can get in touch with the right brain of our species.

The TV show has been a wonderful tool for all the Artists that have been involved. With over forty percent of galleries across Australia closing in recent years, Artists have been struggling to make themselves seen and heard. Colour In Your Life can change that.

Graeme Stevenson, CEO of Colour In Your Life, has been a practicing professional Artist for 30 years. He currently works with the TV show ‘Fine Art Showcase‘ based in Los Angeles, and also a number of large corporate clients and many of the worlds leading Fine Art Licensing agents. As a long time professional artist, Graeme understands the many battles and trials that Artists go through to make a living out of their craft.

Colour In Your Life is a web site that, through the TV series ‘Put Some Colour in Your Life‘, will enable many Artists and viewers to better interact with each other; to be able to exchange information and ideas.

How the Web Site works

The Colour In Your Life Gallery is for all artworks – whether they have sold or are for sale. The Gallery is simply for showing the world what an artist can do.

The gallery plays host to many artistic talents, delving into abstract, impressionism, all the way to super-realism. Anything is welcome, from photography, calligraphy, water-colour and sculpture, to animals, landscapes, portraits and web design.

With thousands of images having already been uploaded in the last few months, the Colour In Your Life Gallery will soon become one the biggest Art Hubs on the web.

Listing images in the Gallery is free, and is the best way to start promoting your work. Thousands of people come looking for artwork everyday, and if it’s not there to see, how will people find you?

The Colour In Your Life Shop is for those artists that wish to sell their artwork online. The artwork must be registered with Colour In Your Life, and while it does not cost anything to list the work, a commission rate is taken upon sale of the work. The seller must also be the owner/creator of the work and be legally allowed to sell the piece.

Copyright: Colour In Your Life will take all measure to protect the copyright of artist’s work registered with the site.

About Graeme Stevenson

Graeme Stevenson was born June 29th, 1958, in Wagga Wagga, New South Wales, Australia. From a young age Graeme was fascinated with the world, beginning his career by painting and studying animals, including the Australian parrots he bred.

His reputation as an artist started to grow after he obtained his pilot’s license and began exploring the vast areas of Australia, photographing, sketching and painting the animals he studied.  He then began travelling across the world to study animals, painting and becoming published – in 1988 he was commissioned to produce ‘The Atlas of Parrots’, displayed in New York, Paris, and the London Natural History Museum.*

*for a more extensive history, please head to the Colour In Your Life website.

Graeme is working with ‘The Celebrity Shopping Network‘ in Los Angeles, and  is on the show about three times a year selling his work to a potential audience of 70 million viewers. His work hangs in galleries and private collections throughout the world.

COMMUNITY

The Colour In Your Life Community is the home for all Artists. With it’s own chat boxes, chat rooms and groups, it’s just like Facebook for Artists.

TV SHOW

The Colour In Your Life TV show airs on channel 4Me nationally  (in Australia). Since going to air, late March 2012, artists that have been involved with Colour In Your Life have confirmed that the interest in their work has accelerated, with some even selling out of their stock due to demand.

THE LATEST

The Colour In Your Life website also has a ‘Tips & Articles’ for artists section, a Colour In Your Life blog, and a competitions page. Colour In Your Life hosts competitions from its major sponsors such as Chroma, all of which can be found on the website. Some of our art prizes have included a $5000 art set from Canson and monthly vouchers from Chroma.

How are your Italian and German language reading skills for completing some of these submissions? If you need help try Google Translate.

ArticulAction

The focus of this edition is on exploring the effectiveness of synergy in contemporary art. Every work of art consists of the *articulation* between varied experiences whose contribution persists in their existence even when the work is finished. But how apparently different techniques are capable of working together in order to create a harmonious artistic composition?

New Resource For Artists: Gratis Access to the Art Magazines, Publishers and Media Submit List

In the first week of this new year, Artist Marketing Resources began putting together a new submit list for artists. In a blog post last week, we asked artists to help build the list.

We now offer all artists gratis access to the PDF submissions list for Art Magazines, Publications and Media

This list also includes Tumblr blogs that accept art submissions.

Why Tumblr blogs? According to a Mashable article, Meet Tumblr’s First Artist in Residence, Tumblr is on the top 10 list of the most visited sites in the world.

Tumblr blogs contain more than 20 billion posts and have about 170 million people per month using Tumblr.

Creating Multiple Points of Sale and Art Products

I’ve set up unique buy options for my art and shared my images on Pinterest. The latest research reveals that about 28% of Pinterest users earn 6 figure incomes and use Pinterest to shop for home decor and other products.

My painting, Blue Rice Cracker, is one of 7 paintings selected by an art licensing company for limited edition canvas prints. (I will share that site in future). An art licensing contract will, of course, allow me to sell the original paintings, and so I have Blue Rice Cracker listed for sale on both Artsia and Zatista, since I’ve had painting sale on both sites before.

I am also free to sell paper prints, such as on the Society6 site, and textile prints on the Spoonflower site. On Society6 there is a buy option for my painting printed on this decorative pillow home decor item, which I promote to urban apartment dwellers, home owners, and Interior Designers alike.
