Latest News about art and Collectors
I read in a well known Art News Paper ( on-line) version that 'FACEBOOK' was the latest 'IN' place to be if you were an Artist or Art Collector, Dealer or Gallery.
In the few weeks I have been ON 'facebook' I have noticed a lot of action in these areas and groups and noticed all the established artists chatting so openly about their daily lives and contacts.
The Artists don't even say things in private, just so openly so it lets others know who 'HAVE' been on the phone and showing interest in their works.
I find it very open and it is like 'THESE' well known artists are using 'FACEBOOK to bragg about their lives and contacts.
These people are so open and after sending them friends request they accept me like I'm their long lost friend.
How strange, but it is a place not to ignore and if you 'ARE' a serious artist, you should be here on facebook.
It could be a passing Fad until the next best thing comes along, but for now, I am staying with it and watching.
These days 'ART' is about networking and looking at the great raw talent that is out there.
The Art World is changing and so are buyers and sellers, where it was a buyers market, places like 'FACEBOOK' will now make the art world realise and realise soon that the 'SELLER' has the power now, like where 'ART' should be.
Auctions and Galleries will lose the power and it will become up to the artist to place their price again on the work, finding the true artists and finding the true art with the true value.
I have created some great groups on 'FACEBOOK' with links to all my networks, feel 'FREE to join in, and it is 'Free' to join my networks'.
