Why Artists Need A Web Site Gallery

An amazing event happened a few years ago. That event was the creation of the World Wide Web. The world has never been the same since. The world of art and artists has certainly never been the same. Never in the history of art has there been such an impact. Have you ever seen as many creative enterprises as you find on the internet? Art lovers used to go to galleries, and now the galleries come to them. Perhaps, if you’re an artist, your gallery is one of these. If not, why not? As an artist, I feel every fellow artist should have a web site, but this is a personal commitment many artists refuse to make. Perhaps, they’re scared, or perhaps they just don’t know what a powerful tool this can be. The reason I feel so strongly about this is that there is no better, cheaper, harder working entity that will help represent you and provide the creative recognition you seek. A personal web site works for you 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for pennies. While the internet will never replace the business of producing and selling art through conventional channels such as gallery showings, etc., think of it as a means to enhance your artistic enterprise. You must still spend time with conventional means of promotion, but with a web art site, not only will you be able to provide gallery space for your art, you will own the gallery itself. And this gallery never closes! Your web site is actually a gallery storefront and you are the proprietor waiting to greet your customers with a smile. You probably won’t sell directly from your web site (although many artists do), but indirectly as a result of your web site. You see, a web site art gallery is not just a place to show your art, it’s a promotional tool as well. Your art gallery is located on the Internet. You won’t be alone out there on this new frontier. You’ll have plenty of company. In fact, you’ll have too much company at times. It’s a bit like the stacks of neon lights in Tokyo’s Ginza district. There are so many web sites they overwhelm the senses vying for your attention. Which one do you look at first? Which is most important? Where will you go? Fortunately the internet provides some measure of order through the use of search engines and indexes such as Google or Yahoo. The trick is to make your gallery noticeable through all the electronic clutter. It’s a jungle out there. When customers browse the Internet, what they are seeking is information; a solution to a need, a desire unfulfilled. Your goal is to put yourself in the path of these seekers and offer up your wares. There are many tools you can use to help you do this such as business cards and brochures or postcards that are very basic and have been around forever. They’re all designed to get your attention. A business card may travel with a letter or brochure to introduce you to someone a distance away such as an art rep or business contact. A brochure may or may not be handed out directly and more often than not is used as a “traveling salesman” to introduce your work. These tools are often as important as your web site and will help support your web enterprise at all times. Virtually every one of these tools leads either directly or indirectly to your target market of potential customers who are in turn directed to your web site. As your art career expands, you will interact directly with people, and sometimes you will interact indirectly through people, their surrogates or virtual groups of people. Seldom, unless your art is actually present such as at an art gallery or show, will you sell or even talk directly to your customers in a personal manner. A web site though, allows you an opportunity to direct attention to your art and have the web site act as your salesperson in a very personal manner. Not only can you post pictures of your stuff, you can offer up slices of your personality in a very direct manner to every viewer. You can’t possibly talk to as many people as your web site can do for you. When you do talk about your art though, you can direct people to go visit your web art gallery and the conversation will continue, long after you’ve left the premises. The need to get noticed as an artist has never diminished and a web art gallery will help accomplish this wonderfully. A web site provides a place for your public to engage with you and your art. My eBook “How to sell Your Art on the Web” talks briefly about the mechanical process of setting up a web art gallery, but more importantly discusses the ways in which artists can promote this entity and thus promote their art. Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t or shouldn’t do this yourself. I have found that the act of creating a web site and promoting it is often as creative as the process of producing art. And it is invigorating when you get responses back from people half a world away. Whether you choose to go it alone, or join a group art site, put the power of the web to use and get it working for you. This is a powerful tool to promote and enhance your artistic career.

Worthing Museum and Art Gallery

Worthing’s Museum and Art Gallery is located in the centre of the town, next to the Town Hall on Chapel Road and just a short walk from the Montague and Warwick Street shopping areas. It is operated by the Leisure and Cultural services department of Worthing Borough Council, entry is free and it is open Tuesday to Saturday, 10am-5pm. Having first opened in 1908, Worthing Museum and Art Gallery has just recently celebrated its centenary. The elegant Edwardian building houses the largest museum in West Sussex. With thousands of artifacts and objects in its collection, it is able to make a large number display of local and national interest. The museum has over a thousand dolls that range in date from the late eighteenth century to the 1980s. As well as dolls from famous makers, there are unusual examples such as the peddler doll that has a head made from a pickled apple and a fertility doll that is reputed to have helped an Eliza Westwood to have thirteen children in the nineteenth century. The growing collection of toys includes bears of all shapes and sizes and all sorts of Victorian toys as well as jigsaw puzzles, board and card games. A recent bequest of the Colin Mears Collection of children’s books and associated material documents the history of 20th Century Childhood. There is an excellent display of Worthing’s geological past and how the local chalk downs, Wealden clays and sandstones were formed. The fossil collection includes those that are typical of the chalk hills of the South Downs as well as the tusk and tooth of a woolly mammoth and remains of an Iguanadon. The displays take us through the archaeology of the area with finds from the oldest flint mines in the country (New Stone Age), Bronze Age, Roman and Saxon times. Amongst them are the remains of an Anglo-Saxon long boat that once ferried up to four passengers at a time across the river Arun, an ancient Egyptian glass vase with a Greek inscription, found at the Anglo-Saxon cemetery at Highdown and as well as many Roman coins, the Patching hoard of gold coins. The more recent past of life on the South Downs and the development of Worthing as a popular seaside resort over the last two hundred years or so is represented in a number of displays. There are typical scenes of a Downland kitchen, a Victorian nursery and bathing in the sea as well as a large collection of objects and photographs. The costume and textile collections date from the 17th century until present day. The diverse costume collection comes from all over Britain and covers a whole range of types of clothing for different occasions. The textiles cover all aspects of needlework, domestic furnishings and pictures in wools and silks. Upstairs, the collection of fine art not only covers local artists and those linked to Sussex, but also works representing a wide range of styles which includes Bianca (1869), a painting by William Holman Hunt who was one of the founders of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Exhibitions and themed displays of the museum’s own collections are frequently held in the Norwood Gallery. The current display celebrates the Museums centenary. Here and downstairs there are many examples of decorative art such as glass and ceramics which include local pottery and souvenir pieces. To finish the tour of the museum, there is a Sculpture Garden at the back of the building where interesting sculpture exhibitions are held three times a year.

Art Gallery Exhibits Are More Than Pictures

An early African art gallery exhibits pictures painted on a single rock face that formed the wall of a residence as well as a gallery of paintings. The pictures that survive to this day on the rock face that was both a gallery and a residence show how art must have been part of the quality of life of the people. Depictions of traditional ceremonies and hunting scenes are succeeded by drawings of domesticated animals and large black figures. These portend the end of their ancient way of life. Yet they kept up their work as artists almost to the point of extinction. It could be that artists are in 2011 creating symbols that foretell the extinction of society as it is known today with the same unconscious foresight that the cave dwellers had. Only time will tell. It is possible that artists through the ages have been moved by inner compulsions to creatively interpret reality as it appears to them and that the signs they make have meaning of which they are themselves only partially aware. Most young children experience creative urges at some point in their development. It may be so slight as to be indiscernible and quickly obliterated by experience. But for those with a creative it will smolder within like a fire and flame out when when conditions are right, or when they discover a medium that sets them alight. Artists are often shy and reticent by nature. The sensitivity that is part of a creative personality tends to be associated with reticence. Despite this most artist will want to exhibit their work. Feedback and response are the means of measurement. Artists must be tough as nails and willing to withstand criticism, but positive feedback from an exhibition is like manna from heaven to them. Masterpieces of art are exhibited in all the great galleries throughout the world. Art critics write so much about them that the artists themselves would probably be bewildered to know how much more their painting means than they realized themselves. This is due to the imagination. An artist uses his imagination to create a scene or portrait and it is the imaginative integrity of a picture that gives it a life of it own beyond the details that an artist puts into it. The critics’ comments may be perfectly valid. The artist and the critic have quite different roles to play in art. A new dimension has been added to the artistic world with the advent of the online art gallery. In the past some people sniffed dismissively at works that were not directly representational. They were inclined to make smug comments about liking ‘real’ art, the implication being that anything not resembling a chocolate box could not be deemed worthwhile. Online galleries enable people to access real masterpieces and read what critics have to saying They also make evident the fact that pictures have symbolic significance beyond the space that they may take up on a wall. A picture that is accessed, appreciated and ordered online will have that abstract meaning, and then another whole identity when it is framed and hung in a different context.

Top Sexy Tattoos for Men and Women

Tattos are getting more and more popular these days as they rise from being a subculture to now being in the mainstream. Gone are the days when ink used to be for bikers only, prisoners, sailors or gangsters. In the present society, everyone from soccer mom to business exec, even senior citizens and professionals seem to want to have a touch of that infamous ink on their body. They have become a sexy and fashionable expression of one’s personality. Here are the top most favored designs by both men and women.

Rib tattoos are becoming the new sexy and hot trend as more and more tat enthusiasts are choosing this type of theme for their body ink. The rib cage is a great canvas for the tattoo artist to work on. Large body ink with detailed and intricate art can be accommodated in this area. Rib tattoos can highlight the natural curvatures of one’s body making it more sexy and appealing.

Tribal tattoos are classic and timeless as they are always in the trend. They are favored by both men and women as they are very much part of the tattoo history as it originated way back during pre industrial times when ancient people cluster in tribes and tattoos are used to reflect their social status and religious values. Nowadays, any tattoos with tribal touch seem to represent and give honor to the early people who discovered this amazing body art.

Textual tattoos are continually rising in popularity as both men and wome are opting for this design instead of images. Text such as quotations, verse from the bible, lines from poems or favorite songs are some of the commom choices. Fonts such as scripts and old english styles are used to portrayed these text on different body areas such as rib, back, shoulder blade and arm.

Back tattoos are another sexy option for both men and women. This is executed in a body canvas that is flat, smooth and large so the possibilities for a superb body art are endless. With a tattoo this magnitude, one has to consider careful planning and sufficient time in determining what designs to go for. Men usually go for the full back tattoos or start out with the upper back area. Women want to be noticeable with their lower back tats with favorites such as butterfly, flowers and tribal art.
