LinkLuv: 30 July

Juried Art Services centralizes an artist’s portfolio, allowing you to upload a variety of images and choose which ones you want to include with an application. The jurors then look at your works online via the website. It’s a great idea, but the website looks strangely corporate or techy, not so much artsy. Further, it seems very few exhibits are on board at this point. If the website gathers some steam and more galleries jump on board, it will become very useful. Via Old World Swine.

A large ceramic sculpture was knocked over by a museum-goer in the Royal Academy, London. One of Costa Rican artist Tatiana Echeverri Fernandez’s five frauleins met its death against the gallery floor. The most interesting part of this story was that some viewers who came in after the incident apparently thought that was how the exhibit was supposed to look.

About pcNielsen
Paul Nielsen founded The Aesthetic Elevator late in 2005. He owns a piece of paper, located somewhere in his house (not on the wall), stating that he earned a B.F.A. from the University of Nebraska around about 2001. While there, he studied studied architecture, graphic design and ceramics, graduating with a degree in studio art. Paul presently serves as communications manager for a small non-profit doing their print design and marketing. He spends as much time sculpting in his studio as possible — which is not nearly enough.
