Featured Articles:Curated art online: how does it work?
We'd like to help.
What role does (or should) art play in our lives?
Internet thrives on sharing. It is the ultimate “pass it on” engine that allows us to up to date on the latest news and happenings - whether it is with our friends or elsewhere in the world. But what do you think is the most common type of media that is being handed from screen to screen online?
Images take up the most amount of traffic on the internet and there is a reason for that: it is virtually the easiest way to convey information without having it written. It is also the easiest way to experience art online. There are billions of photographs and works of art being posted on Facebook, tweeted and pinned. Some of those images are ours - so we decided to make it easier and more fun to share ArtSocket material for anyone who’d like to. Simply click the share button (bottom right of the photo, looks like a square with an arrow coming out of it) and you are done.
Of course, this function bears ArtSocket award-winning design and usability. (And your followers will appreciate and praise you for sharing high-quality art :) Enjoy!
Kathryn Tully discusses on Forbes the latest shift in art trade. To be more specific she lists the pros and cons for both the businesses/artists and the collectors/buyers for the online art market. There are obvious barriers to making large purchases online, such as experiencing the works in their true appearance (i.e. seeing how the actual 20” canvas print looks on the wall vs an image on 13” computer display). But there are also advantages in terms of easier distribution methods and lack of need for physical space to store the works.
