Posting on Art News Blog

If you want to increase the chances of your art news, exhibition announcement or amazing products being posted on Art News Blog you have to first understand that I live in a world where the days are only 24 hours long. In that 24 hours I also have to find time to brush my teeth, put clean clothes on, and browse cat pictures on the Internet, so I’m always looking for ways to do things more efficiently. If something is really hard to do I’ll generally leave it for later, which really means never ever. Here’s some ways to make things easier for me..Continue Reading

A Look Back at Art News Blog

art news blog

I can’t believe how quickly 2013 flew by! I’m glad it has gone though as it was possibly my shittiest year yet. I didn’t paint much of value, I had a pile of family problems, financial problems, health problems, and my dad passed away, so I say good riddance to 2013, you sucked! I’m looking forward to making 2014 a much better year :-) Continue Reading

ArT nEwS bLoG iS 5 YeArS oLd!

Art News Blog is FIVE years old. That must make me some kind of blogger or arts writer or something. I’m most comfortable with the “something” label though. Someone called me an art critic recently and I didn’t know how to react. He said it in a way that was supposed to be flattering but I was actually very offended.Continue Reading

Art Podcasts

I’m probably one of the last people in the world to own an Apple iPod but it’s better late than never. I bought an Ipod Classic which has 120gb of storage on it. If “gb” doesn’t mean much to you it simply means it has more storage than a lot of personal computers and can store a LOT of songs.

I bought it as I desperately miss my CD collection when I’m not at home. I’m planning an extended road trip around the South East of Australia (Canberra, Melbourne, Tasmania, etc.) and I plan to take my whole music collection with me on my iPod.Continue Reading

Studio and Art News

I haven’t posted much this week as I have started painting in my neighbor’s shed. It’s the first time I have used oil paints or had a studio in almost two years, so the internet just hasn’t been as important for me this week.

I forgot how much oils smell, but I also forgot how much fun they are. I like the idea of growing a painting, letting it develop over time, and not feeling pressured into finishing it at any point. So oils are perfect for me.. and I’m starting to like the smell again!Continue Reading

Art News Round Up

Lots has been happening in the world of art lately.

  • Anselm Kiefer is exhibiting at the Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art says the NY Times. One of the sculptures (or is it an installation?.. who knows..) is the large concrete “Narrow Are the Vessels” which was in the backyard of a Connecticut collector before he was forced to remove it. Here’s the exhibition guide at the museum.Continue Reading

The Art Newspaper TV

The Art Newspaper is working hard to take advantage of the internet, with a digital edition and an online TV channel about to launch. It looks like it will be a paid subscription model that will give you access to the videos and a full digital version of their publication.Continue Reading

Art News Round Up

I haven’t been posting as much as I should lately, but there has been quite a bit happening around the world..

  • I completely missed the passing of R.B. Kitaj. He died on October 21, 2007. Jed Perl remembers Kitaj over at The New Republic.
  • BBC reports that a Banksy auction sold ten works and a print by the graffiti artist for £546,000, which is quite a bit more than the £300,000 expected for the sale.
  • Charlie Finch attacks some big name art blogs over at ArtNet. In Internet marketing circles, that article would be called Link Bait.
  • Kirsty Hall comes up with some great reasons why all artists should have a blog.
  • Jafabrit explores her dark side and creates a discussion about light and dark.
  • USA Today mentions the Rembrandt-ish looking work that is believed to be by someone other than the Dutch master. It was expected to sell for about $3,000 but sold for about $4.5 million. I guess someone thought it was by Rembrandt!
  • NY Times slideshow of images from “The Arts of Kashmir” exhibition.
  • The Art Newspaper looks into the world of Aboriginal art in Australia and how the artists are treated by gallery owners.
  • PERFORMA 07 is happening in New York.
