ARTmonday: 14 Artworks from the MassArt Auction 2015

Like the School of Museum of Fine Arts, the Massachusetts College of Art & Design holds a sale, in this case an auction, to benefit scholarship and academic programs. The 26th Annual MassArt Auction 2015 takes place in Boston this Saturday, April 11th at 6:30. Karen Keane of Skinner will be presiding.

In addition to the many paintings, photos, drawings, sculptures, and multimedia works for auction, there are three special commissions: a portrait sitting with William Wegman (1965) at his home in Chelsea, NYC, a custom evening gown by Jeury Roasario (2003), and a commission of products in your pantry by Rachel Perry Welty.

Here are 14 artworks I love from the MassArt Auction 2015, all open for online bids now on Paddle8 through April 10.

ARTmonday: 20 Artworks from Artsy

Artsy is easily among my favorite art sites. Not just for buying (some pieces are not actually for sale, though there are 10,000+ that are), it describes itself as an online platform for discovering, discussing, and collecting art.  Artys’s collection boasts 30,000+ artworks by 6,000+ artists, sourced from top galleries, museums, private collections, foundations, and artists’ estates. The idea is to foster new generations of art lovers, museum-goers, collectors, and patrons. I’m all for that.

Artsy is powered by The Art Genome Project, which  is an ongoing study to map the characteristics (known as ‘genes’) that connect artists and artworks globally. It’s an interesting concept which perhaps deserves its own blog post. Here’s the idea: There are over 500 genes including art-historical movements, subject matter, and formal qualities. For instance, Artsy might connect Andy Warhol to Damien Hirst via the Pop Culture gene, or Ai Weiwei with Botticelli via the Metaphor/Allegory gene.

Based in downtown NYC (of course), the site’s leaders are Carter Cleveland, a computer science engineer from Princeton University and Sebastian Cwilich, a former executive at Christie’s. In addition to inquiring about purchasing works, users can contact Artsy specialists to discuss works and help you form a collection at no charge. I chose 20 pieces to show you today,
