Arts » Arts Stories & Interviews




I’ve developed an online obsession. I find myself going back to my computer with my eyes transfixed on this one site — unable to pull away even to break for lunch (while my co-worker is tempting me with an amazing smelling pot pie ... yum!). It’s similar to the obsession I cultivated during my freshman year of college when I discovered MySpace. The website I’ve recently fallen in love with is The site, although simple-looking, is “the premier online social network for the art world.”

It’s a networking tool for artists all around the globe (and an awesome site for art lovers ... and art writers like myself). Myartspace resembles MySpace, but it is strictly for artists — each personal page has a section for a gallery, a biography, and comments. The site is also useful for art collectors, buyers, and museum curators — and, like MySpace, it’s free to join.

Myartspace also features contests — the 2007 contest titled New York, New York awarded four artists with a show in the Chelsea gallery district of NYC last month. Added benefits include: interviews with emerging and established artists, a weekly web-zine, and a global events calendar. is a must-visit. Make it your New Year’s resolution to check this site out; you won’t be disappointed.
