Art on the Vine is pleased to announce DC-based artist and Pittsburgh native Nate Lewis as its inaugural resident. Starting in June, Nate will spend four-weeks on Martha’s Vineyard creating exclusive work that he will present at Art on the Vine’s second annual exhibition on August 13th-15th. This year’s event produced by The Agora Culture is expanding to three-days and will be held at the historic Dr. Daniel Fisher House in Edgartown, MA. “We are proud to have Nate as the first artist to participate in our residency program. He is an example of ingenious artists who are out here on the rise but need spaces where they can continue to cultivate their practice,” said Jessica Stafford Davis, founder of Art on the Vine and The Agora Culture. “We chose Martha’s Vineyard for our residency and summer art exhibition because it is a cultural haven and melting pot. Nate will not only work on his practice but also meet and engage with a variety of culturally astute individuals in the community.” Nate Lewis is a gifted artist who began his career as a critical care registered nurse. A self-taught artist, drawing inspiration from anatomy, physiology, disease processes and his nursing experience as a care taker of patients and their family members, he creates stunning, intricate 2-3d sculptures out of single sheets of paper that visually combines the aesthetics of drawing, sculpture, etching, embroidery, and textiles. Lewis’ work pushes the idea of freedom within boundaries, and seeks to confront perceptions of vulnerability, tragedy, and time. “I’m very grateful to Jessica and Art on the Vine for this great opportunity,” said Nate. “This residency will give me more freedom to try new techniques that typically take longer to achieve. I’m really looking forward to spending time on the Vineyard, getting to know the community, and working on my practice.” Nate will join an array of talented artists such as Yashua Klos, Deborah Roberts, Edgar Areceneaux, and Stan Squirewell at the second annual Art on the Vine in Martha’s Vineyard. Connecting the dots between contemporary artists and art enthusiasts, Art on the Vine is a multicultural arts event that brings together collectors, up-and-coming artists, institutions, and the merely curious for a unique cultural exhibition. The three-day event will showcase museum-quality works and educational panels featuring high-profile collectors. Attendees will also be treated to a martini happy hour, gallery tours, and an exclusive swag bag. A complete list of artists and panelists will be revealed in the next few weeks.

On February 18th, the newly renovated HACK Temple will host the San Francisco-based ARTandVR exhibition. With over thirty featured artists, performers, and exhibitors, every part of the church will present a novel experience. Demos will abound with ten Virtual Reality experiences, including Sundance selections Price of Freedom and Viens!, featured artist Marpi, a trip exploring mortality by Chelley Sherman, a Galactic Gallery of top visionary artists, and more. Audiences will also be able to draw with their minds using an electroencephalogram, or EEG. The Welch Brothers and El Shamanico will be displaying their newest work alongside Bay Area locals Irie and TITTY. Kimber Shaw and Julia Sorenson’s mixed media hanging will be suspended on one side, with Stuart Mason’s floating LED sculpture on the other. Lounge areas will offer a crystal tea ceremony, the Lucia Light Experience, and the live audio visual act Made of the Moon. On stage, futurist and filmmaker Brett Leonard, Director of “The Lawnmower Man” and “Virtuosity,” will discuss best practices for avoiding dystopia. Beautiful Machines will be giving a preview presentation of their upcoming TED Talk. Local electronic artists Heddy Fur and Gonzofuze will play eclectic music. Oakland-based Cerebellum Projekt will end the night with an aerial acrobatics show based on the transformative tales in the taro deck accompanied by synthesizers and live instruments. ARTandVR began when Stuart Mason—a sculpturist and pupil at San Francisco Art Institute—began curating art and Virtual Reality showcases at the Upload Collective which featured visionaries such as Android Jones, as well as gave local artists a launching pad to display and sell their work. Mason asked for advice from VR filmmaker Fifer Garbesi in selecting art pieces for the show. Being a Bay Area native and devout underground art fan, she led him to undiscovered visionaries in Oakland. They found Victor Castro, distinctly known for his intricate and multi-layered, UV reactive shrine, which has since evolved into a projection mapped, interactive masterpiece on display at the show. Castro has been invited to present at the SFMoMA. “Within this family, we connect younger, aspiring artists with the resources, partners, and fan base they need to emerge as leaders into an ecosystem eager to see and experience new realities,” says exhibition creator Stuart Mason. “I believe bridging the growing chasm between the art and tech communities through creative collaboration could catalyze the radical change needed to become a truly progressive society. Not to mention result in some incredible art,” says co-founder Fifer Garbesi. ARTandVR is located in a stunning cathedral with a rich history linked to the transformation of San Francisco. Built in 1912, Our Lady of Guadalupe Church was the worshiping place for many Spanish speaking Christians. In 2016, GVA Capitol purchased the building to transform it into a meeting place for thought leaders to gather and innovate. "For a whole century it served as a place for people to come with their dreams and challenges, help and support each other and connect," GVA co-founder Cherkashin told SFist. "We needed a place for an open public forum to inspire free flow of thoughts and ideas on innovation." ARTandVR invites attendees to explore the possibilities of network and collaboration in this inspiring space. To learn more about the event and purchase tickets, go to ARTandVR.com.

-.ART, el primer dominio de Internet dedicado al arte y la cultura, se lanza con más de 60 museos y organizaciones de arte reconocidos El Art Institute of Chicago, Centre Pompidou, Fondation Beyeler, Fondation Cartier, el museo Guggenheim, Hauser & Wirth, ICA Miami, LACMA, MAXXI, Tate y Walker Art Center, entre otros, serán los primeros en lanzar sitios web en .ART LONDRES, 28 de noviembre de 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- .ART, el primer dominio creado exclusivamente para la comunidad del arte global, se complace anunciar que más de 60 museos y organizaciones de arte reconocidos lanzarán sitios web dedicados en el nuevo dominio de alto nivel, incluyendo el Art Institute of Chicago, Centre Pompidou, Fondation Beyeler, Fondation Cartier, museo Guggenheim, Hauser & Wirth, ICA Miami, LACMA, MAXXI, Tate y Walker Art Center, entre otros. Como primeros adoptantes de.ART, estas organizaciones tienen emocionantes planes para activar sus nuevos dominios, algunos de los cuales incluyen migrar y consolidar totalmente sus sitios web existentes a.ART, mientras otros lanzarán nuevos sitios web dedicados para mostrar contenido único de sus artistas y/o colecciones. "Nuestra misión es preservar el legado cultural del mundo del arte global. Estamos orgullosos de que tantas instituciones respetadas de todo el mundo compartan nuestra visión y convicción de que .ART transformará la relación de la comunidad del arte con Internet y ayudará a proteger la herencia de su marca online", explicó Ulvi Kasimov, fundador de .ART. John Matson, consejero delegado de .ART continuó: ".ART ofrece una nueva manera para el mundo del arte de identificarse online. El dominio es corto, sencillo, memorable y tiene una asociación inmediata con el arte. Para nuestros primeros adoptantes, un dominio .ART es una expresión natural de su marca". Los primeros adoptantes recibirán acceso en primer lugar a los nombres de dominio .ART, y así, tendrán la oportunidad de lanzar contenido en sus sitios web respectivos con anticipación a los dominios disponibles para compra por el público general en verano de 2017. Los primeros adoptantes de .ART compartieron su entusiasmo: El director digital de Tate, Ros Lawler, dijo que el museo está "encantado de participar en el lanzamiento de este nuevo dominio, que ayudará a promover algunas de las mayores colecciones, galerías y museos de arte del mundo". Benoît Parayre, director de Comunicación y Asociaciones en el Centre Pompidou, explicó "Un nombre de dominio para el mundo del arte se ha retrasado mucho y ahora permitirá a muchos líderes de la industria de la cultura, museos, centros de arte, galerías, coleccionistas, etc., tener más nombres de dominio relevantes para promover sus colecciones y programación". "El Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain está encantado de convertirse en parte del nuevo vecindario digital de .ART y evolucionar aún más sus programas", dijo el director digital, David Desrimais. Anton Vidokle, artista y fundador de e-flux, añadió: "La Internet lleva un profundo potencial educacional y un dominio fiable e informativo dedicado al arte ofrecerá una fuente de conocimiento inestimable. El dominio de arte se convertirá en una plataforma efectiva que dignifica el trabajo excelente de las organizaciones de arte y artistas de todas las partes del mundo para todos los que aman y se preocupan por el arte". Dominique Chevalier, director general del Syndicat National des Antiquaires (SNA), que organiza el Biennale des Antiquaires en el Grand Palais in Paris, explicó: "Para nosotros y para nuestras galerías, '.com' es demasiado comercial y '.fr' es demasiado genérico. El problema con la mayoría de los nombres de dominio es que no dicen nada sobre el negocio que hacen, '.ART' resuelve eso". Lélia Pissarro, co-propietaria de Stern Pissarro Gallery y bisnieta de la artista Camille Pissarro, añadió: "La Internet ha tenido el mayor impacto en el mercado del arte global. Ha traído el arte a cada rincón del mundo. El camino hacia delante en cuanto a los nombres de dominios es claramente categorizar industrias. Sentimos que con lo que el nombre Pissarro representa, casarlo con '.com' carecía de elegancia. Tener la posibilidad de utilizar ahora 'pissarro.art' es sencillamente la solución perfecta. Llena un largo vacío en nuestra estrategia de marketing y la forma en que nos proyectamos". Los primeros adoptadores tienen planes de largo alcance para sus respectivos sitios: Tate, LACMA, Multimedia Art Museum, y el Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum crearán sitios web que destacarán varios aspectos de sus colecciones, mientras la Fondation Cartier utilizará el dominio que hará que su colección esté disponible al público por primera vez. Mientras tanto, el Centre Pompidou lanzará un sitio web dedicado con información útil en inglés y otros idiomas para sus visitantes extranjeros. Hauser & Wirth celebrará el 25 aniversario de la galería con el lanzamiento de un sitio web interactivo con una cronología visual que detalla las casi tres décadas de historia de la galería. Además, Canesso Gallery, Galerie Meyer Oceanic & Eskimo Art, Galerie Perrin, Tomasso Brothers Fine Art, Stern Pissarro Gallery y Venus migrarán totalmente sus sitios web existentes a sus nuevos dominios .ART. Desde febrero de 2017, los nombres de dominio .ART estarán disponibles para registro para los miembros profesionales del mundo del arte, asegurando que las partes implicadas clave reciben la oportunidad de asegurar sus dominios deseados primero.

Imagine the beauty of delicate leaves juxtaposed with a plastic bag floating through the air, while a family of ducks wanders by a broken traffic cone. For Joelle Provost, a painter living and working in Oakland, California, this odd combination of urban refuse and nature is extremely inspiring. As a nature enthusiast, Provost wondered just how famous 19th Century painters would react to the modern environmental crisis. Her response was to create pieces that reflected her interest in environmentalism and 19th Century styles. "My goal is to create at least 10 works to be displayed at a solo show in California's Marin County, an environmentalist hub," explains Provost. "Through these pieces, fears about waste and pollution will be brought to the forefront. The purpose is to inspire viewers to see how the natural world is being affected by a lack of environmental concern." By contrasting works inspired by artists - such as Paul Cezanne, Arnold Bocklin and Gustave Courbet - with loose bags, cans floating in ponds and everyday trash, Provost hopes her art will draw much-needed attention to today's environmental problems. Provost's work addresses numerous themes of environmental degradation and the stages of grief that humans are forced to endure, due to the loss of various species and plant forms. The subjects within her paintings are inflicted by the everything-is-connected-syndrome in the age of climate change. To help pay for art supplies, gallery space, promotion costs and studio space, Provost launched a fundraiser on Kickstarter. There, she hopes to raise $12,000 through crowdfunding. She plans to use the funds to produce a minimum of 10 large works. Provost intends to donate 25% of the proceeds from art sales to forest protection through the nonprofit, Wildlife Alliance. About Art of Our Modern Landscape: Art of Our Modern Landscape is a line of paintings created by Joelle Provost, a painter living and working in Oakland, California. Through her work, she hopes to inspire viewers to see how the natural world is being affected by a lack of environmental concern.

Podcast technology provider ART19 announces today that Feral Audio has enlisted the platform for all of its hosting, distribution, analytics and ad serving needs. The rapidly-growing, “fiercely-independent” podcast network is home to over 50 shows including “Harmontown,” “The Duncan Trussell Family Hour,” “Call Chelsea Peretti,” “Kumail Nanjiani's The X-Files Files” and breakout sensation, “My Favorite Murder.” Feral selected ART19 for its proprietary WarpFeed® technology, which supports improved audience targeting and serving of fresh host-read ads, even throughout back catalog content. This allows Feral to generate revenue on a considerable amount of inventory that had previously gone unmonetized. “Partnering with ART19 helps us increase revenue for shows without undermining their independence,” said Feral Audio CEO Jason Smith. “We’re no longer limited to selling advertising on the latest episode of a show. Instead, we can flight and target native live reads across multiple episodes.
