  • Clay Tea Light Holder Gifts
    by Red Ted Art on 4th December 2019 at 1:35 am

    We love Christmas Crafts that kids can make! My kids are still “too young” to really spend any money on gifts for friends and family. So I encourage them to always make something homemade for Christmas. Afterall, making something, spending the time and effort, is much more special and than buying something “random” from the […] The post Clay Tea Light Holder Gifts appeared first on Red Ted Art. […]

    As INTI began this work in collaboration with Galeria Lira, the biggest social mobilization in Chilean history is brewing throughout the country.

    by Roland Henry on 21st November 2019 at 6:55 am

    Melbourne street artist Kaff-eine’s upcoming exhibition, Southern Wild, celebrates our real, everyday bodies through surreal nude portraits of humanlike characters. Melbourne’s street art spotters have long spied them lurking in city laneways and abandoned spaces; paintings of large, quietly looming characters with nude human bodies, deer skull heads, and hooves for feet. Kaff-eine’s intriguing ‘deerhunters’ The post Kaff-eine – Southern Wild appeared first on StreetArtNews. […]

  • ilona szalay at pulse miami
    by the jealous curator on 5th December 2019 at 9:00 am

    Oil on aluminum. Sigh. I love the loose and luxurious work of Beirut born, London based artist Ilona Szalay. I’ve always found her paintings sort of mysterious and a little bit scandalous… but maybe that’s just the red paint talking. Ilona’s work will be showing all weekend, starting today {Dec 5th-8th} in Miami, so if you’re […]

  • erin armstrong
    by the jealous curator on 4th December 2019 at 9:00 am

    Acrylic paintings… pastel drawings… paintings… drawings… okay, I’m going to have to flip a coin {probably a toonie} to decide which I love more! This is the work of Canadian artist Erin Armstrong, and if you happen to be in Seattle this week, her latest show is opening at Foster White Gallery. The show, titled “The […]

    by the jealous curator on 3rd December 2019 at 9:00 am

    Wait. What? Sculptures? This is the reaction you have when one of your favorite painters lifts her surreal figures off of the canvas and onto, well, logs! Oh my word, this is the latest work of UK based artist Lisa Wright and I am completely smitten… late, but smitten. This show, titled “Infinite Forest”, was at Coates […]

  • genevieve dionne
    by the jealous curator on 2nd December 2019 at 9:00 am

    Sigh. The ceramic drawings of Vancouver based artist Genevieve Dionne… I could not love her work more and, somehow, everything she does just keeps getting better and better! I’ve written about Genevieve a few times already (here and here), but the moment I saw those manicured Renaissance hands holding a coffee and donut, well, here […]

  • 7 must-see women solo shows in London
    by Ruth Millington on 21st November 2019 at 12:00 am

    Art is still very much a man’s world. Museums and galleries make it clear that the art world has historically been male orientated. Only 13.7% of living artists represented by galleries in Europe and North America are women. But London is leading the way by showing more women artists. Here’s my pick of 7 must-see female solo shows open right now. […]

  • Do apps belong in art galleries?
    by Ruth Millington on 8th October 2019 at 12:00 am

    Not long ago, art world etiquette was clear. Use of mobile phones in a gallery was considered crude. I’ve certainly tutted at selfie-taking tourists, rudely blocking my view. However, many museums and galleries are now encouraging visitors to use their phones. A new app, Smartify, allows you to point your smartphone at an artwork and receive instant information on it. Brilliant idea or big mistake? […]

  • The Chromatics of Play
    by Zoé Samudzi on 4th December 2019 at 6:00 pm

    Blackface killed the silent movie. That is to say, Alan Crosland’s The Jazz Singer (1927), the first feature-length movie with a synchronized music score and singing and speaking, ushered in the ascendance of the talking picture. I feel a contemptuous pity for people straitjacketed by whiteness: people whose only conception of kinship and love and joy […]

  • Alcatraz Is an Idea
    by Julian Brave NoiseCat on 2nd December 2019 at 6:00 pm

    On October 15, the day after eighteen Indigenous canoes paddled around Alcatraz to symbolically reclaim the former federal prison on behalf of Indians of All Tribes, a handful of canoe families — the Northern Quest from Chilliwack, the Three Sisters from Nooksack, the Muckleshoot and the Nisqually from Washington — returned to the island.

  • The Mooseum and The Other Museum: Embedded Art Practices at SFMOMA
    by Abby Bridge on 21st November 2019 at 6:00 pm

    A bumper sticker on one of our older, somewhat battered library carts was my first introduction to the mysterious Manitoba Museum of Finds Art (MMOFA). More glimmerings appeared as we cataloged the Special Collections Artist Files (artist-created ephemera culled from our holdings of over forty thousand files for individual artists and artists’ groups), in exhibition […]
