Right before we all take a break for the holidays, we want to give a shout out to the people who make our blog possible and thank our sponsors for December. Art We Love is an approachable way to jump into art collecting with pieces by artists that are not only affordable but special as well. From painters, photographers and draftsman both established and emerging, Art We Love has a wide selection of work that’s carefully curated. Prices range from $15 to $2,000. I particularly like Changha Hwang’s “Roller Coaster,” seen at left.
Offering an exclusive, exquisitely curated collection of limited edition prints starting at $15, ArtWeLove brings leading contemporary artists into everyone’s lives — easily, enjoyably and affordably.
Works by established artists such as Lyle Starr, Tomoo Gokita, and rising stars such as Venice Biennale-featured Jorge Otero-Pailos, Brent Green, and Molly Dilworth are all available in at least two formats, and priced from $15 to $2,000. Click through for art picks from the editors of Hyperallergic, Art Fag City and Art Market Views.

If the voice’s call is the origin of speech – with its ability to hail, summon, or bestow a name – then perhaps the hand, raised to touch, or signal at a distance, is its silent counterpart. These two gestures form a call and response that provides the structure for stylus, a project created by Ann Hamilton for the Pulitzer Foundation for the Arts.
Now, visitors unable to make it to the museum itself still have a chance to check out the exhibition, explore the galleries and immerse themselves in the images, video, and audio that fill the installation through its online catalogue.
On Friday, November 5, 2010, at 10 am, join the Association of Professional Art Advisors in New York City for a talk with security expert Robert Wittman, author of Priceless – a memoir about his work as the founder of the FBI’s Art Crime Team. For more information or to RSVP, please email email@example.com or call 718-788-1425.
As another step in its history of supporting the art community, Pernod Absinthe has kicked off its 2nd annual contest to find great original art inspired by both the classic liqueur and the year 1805, when Pernod Fils began distilling in France.
The Creator Of Art Contest is an open call for artists to create their own Pernod-inspired works, just as the absinthe-aficionado Impressionists did in their own day. Art history superstars Henri Toulouse-Lautrec, Picasso and Van Gogh were all big fans of the drink.
We received tons of entries but, sadly, there are only six prizes. So, after the contest deadline passed on Friday, we finalized the winners in our “William Kentridge: Anything Is Possible” contest and today we award three people with exclusive tickets to attend the Art21 hosted premiere Monday, October 18 at the Museum of Modern Art while three others will receive a free DVD copy of the flick. For those of you who may not know, the feature-length film tells the story of the world-renowned South African artist William Kentridge.
“William Kentridge: Anything Is Possible” is a new hour-long film from ART 21 that gives viewers an intimate look into the mind and creative process of William Kentridge, the South African artist whose acclaimed work has made him one of the most dynamic and exciting contemporary artists working today.
Art 21 is hosting a special premiere screening at MOMA in New York City on Monday October 18th and they are giving Hyperallergic readers a few chances to win a pair of tickets to this special event.
We would like to take a moment to thank all of our amazing September sponsors: 20×200, apexart, and The Film Society of Lincoln Center.
Our readers know Hyperallergic is the blogazine of choice for intelligent, funny & insightful discussion about art. Our sponsors know that too. Once a month we introduce our sponsors to our readers and let them know a little more about who they are and what they do.
