This week we wanted to share with you a few internet resources that we like to keep up with to know what is going on in the visual arts outside of Charlotte. Yes, we firmly believe that Charlotte’s art scene is rich and diverse and we want to support the art that is created here; one way to do that is to stay abreast of what is happening elsewhere and continue to push Charlotte to move forward.
An all encompassing resource of international news, artist information, gallery exhibitions, auctions, and market data. Go here for the most current information on the biggest names in art.
If you’re a collector, curator, or just general art enthusiast, check out Artfixdaily. This site has both curated art news from other sites and original stories. One of the best features of this site is that you can sort the stories by art category. Also check out their calendar to stay in the know about the biggest shows happening nationwide.
Focusing on American contemporary art, Art in America Magazine is where you will find out about up-and- coming new artists creating work today. Subscribe to their weekly newsletter for a highlight of events, openings, and reviews of art making an impact on the national and international level.
At the same time both serious and humorous, Hyperallergic brings a little levity back to contemporary art journalism while bringing to light some of the most important new artists and exhibitions. You can even read your art themed horoscopes here.
With its iconic square format (nice try instagram, but we know who really started it) and influential criticism, ArtForum is where we go for more academic and in-depth reviews of international contemporary art.
This resource is fantastic for research and browsing. Over 1,500 Art books are available on this site to dowload and read for FREE! A great research resource if you are an art history student, or if you are just interested in showing off your art history trivia skills.
Happy Art Reading!
