With New York style and aesthetic, CricketsCrush offers art for home decor–including photographic prints, paintings, drawings, and sculpture in her virtual warehouse–and as part of Cricket’s interior design service.

Buyers can shop for art in a price range from a few hundred to several thousand dollars or Cricket will come to their home and remake their walls and table-tops for them, working with the home owners existing furniture pieces and style. Because of Cricket’s community connections she brings artist’s work into the home of buyers in the Hamptons and New York City.

How To Add Photos of Your Art to Your Instagram

Latergram

 

Ever since Facebook bought Instagram a couple years ago, I’ve been receiving a steady stream of notifications– your Facebook friend has joined Instagram–yet many of these new instagram accounts remain empty.

You don’t need to own an iPad or iPhone to add photos to Instagram

Over the years I’ve added photos directly from my iPad using my iPad camera to my Instagram account. Usually when I visited a museum exhibition I’d get lots of shots of the art, and sharing to Instagram as I viewed the work added another dimension to the museum going experience.

Over the past month, I’ve been adding photos to multiple Instagram accounts, that I own or manage, using Latergram. Just yesterday the Latergram logo changed along with their name, which is now shortened to Later. You can get Later for your android phone and use Later on your computer to share photos of your art to your Instagram account.

Schedule auto posts with the Later calendar(screen shot of Later calendar below). You can get the Later app in the Google Play store here. It’sfree.

Once you have the Later app installed on your phone, make sure you also have the Instagram app on your phone too. Go to Later on your computer and sign in with Instagram.

Artists Submit to Sight Unseen Magazine and Online Shop

We’ve added these to our extensive list of art magazines and blogs, and our list of online sales sites

Sight Unseen wants to publish professional designer’s, photographer’s, or artist’s work created to keep rather than sell, including homemade objects or gifts for loved ones for the magazine’s ARTISTS’ PROOF section. If you have an interesting home interior with lots of personality, decorated with your possessions, collections, or artworks, submit photos for the Sight Unseen At Home With section or the INVENTORY section for your interesting collections or other group of objects that says something about your creative process, and you’d like to visually catalog it.  If you have a book, magazine, or exhibition you’d like Sight Unseen to excerpt, or If you own or are working with a factory on a project, and have professional or near-professional photos submit them to Sight Unseen. If you’d like to invite Sight Unseen to visit your factory or studio–if your studio is visually intriguing, full of special details, and can communicate something about your creative process in photographs. For STUDIO VISIT: TECHNIQUE, let Sight Unseen know about a unique physical or conceptual technique in your work that you can trace throughout several of your projects. If you’ve created something with a riveting enough backstory or production process to hold a few hundred words for the Sight Unseen to THE MAKING OF section.  If you can look out the window of your studio and see something that’s spectacular, inspiring, or just pointedly mundane Sight Unseen may be interested in photos for their THE VIEW FROM HERE section.

Sight Unseen is also interested in working with artists who would like to put together a custom creative project that can be presented digitally for sole publication on Sight Unseen and artists’  sketchbooks — or h series of sketches for a specific project — that go beyond the obvious. For the WHERE THEY’VE BEEN section, Sight Unseen is looking for images and projects creatively inspired by a trip or a location and documented it by way of photographs, drawings, etc.
