Modern Art Notes
Tyler Green blogs about modern and contemporary art. He's a fun read because, while he's being informative, he's opinionated and likes to poke fun at fatuous art writing. He's also young (well, younger than some), so the blog is sort of a vicarious-hip experience (again, for - *ahem* - some...).
Arts Journal: About Last Night
This blog comes from Terry Teachout, author, drama critic of the Wall Street Journal, music critic of Commentary, arts columnist for the Washington Post, and a whole bunch of other credentials. Here he writes about whatever medium caught his eye or ear on a given day. Set mainly in New York City, it's also a diary of the life of a working critic.
Rick Visser blogs about projects, portfolios and exhibitions - which are all great - but the best things here are the multi-part interviews. Check it out!
Drawing and Sketching
This is the place to visit for information on drawing and sketching (my greatest loves). Helen South cannot only tell you everything worth knowing about how to draw, she ferrets out all sorts of interesting tidbits and reviews from the world of art. A most pleasurable read.
Marion Boddy-Evans has a wonderful site devoted to painting, and her always-timely blog entries about the world of art are a regular stop.
A wealth of information on Ancient History, from roughly the beginning of time to the Fall of Rome. Many kudos to Ms. Gill for updating her readers each time ancient history makes the current news.
The Bad Art Cafe
Great title! Right away, one envisions black velvet Elvises (Elvii?) and some big-eyed moppets holding wilted daisies but, no - this blog contains the musings and observations of Clarie, an ex-starving artist, who has much to say about art and how to educate oneself in matters thereof.
