Gallery Show­case

Western Art Collector - - LETTER FROM THE EDITOR - Joshua Rose Ed­i­tor

From day one of this mag­a­zine we have promised to bring col­lec­tors, gal­leries and artists to­gether in a way that has never hap­pened in print be­fore. From our art mar­ket in­sights to our col­lec­tor home, event pre­views and the of­ten-copied but never-equaled gallery show pre­views, the con­tent of this mag­a­zine has given art col­lec­tors a re­li­able and al­ways-grow­ing tool to help them ac­quire art for their col­lec­tions.

And now we an­nounce that we’ve en­hanced that tool and taken it to a whole other level.

How did we do that, you ask? Well, start­ing with our De­cem­ber is­sue you will be able to see even more avail­able art right on our web­site.

Here is how it will work:

All the ads that ap­pear in the printed mag­a­zine will be present down the right-hand side of the web­site. Oh, did I for­get to men­tion that the en­tire con­tents of the mag­a­zine will be avail­able on the web­site as well? Sub­scribers get au­to­matic free ac­cess to all con­tent. This isn’t our dig­i­tal mag­a­zine. It’s our on­line site and ev­ery sin­gle ar­ti­cle in the mag­a­zine can be found on the web­site be­gin­ning with our De­cem­ber is­sue.

So back to the ads. The ads will be on the right side of the web­site. Look at each one. Un­der the ad there will be a cam­era icon with a num­ber on it. This num­ber rep­re­sents the num­ber of ex­tra im­ages from the ad­ver­tised show that are on the site. We fig­ure that in an ar­ti­cle we can only show you three or four im­ages from an artist’s up­com­ing show. But now, on this site, gal­leries will be able to up­load up to 20!

As a col­lec­tor, all you need to do is click on the ad and all these im­ages will ap­pear to scroll through. Then, you can email in­quiries straight to the gallery, see which ones are al­ready sold or just pe­ruse the whole lot and get a bet­ter idea of an artist’s most re­cent pro­duc­tion.

We feel all of this will make you more in­formed col­lec­tors and give you even more of a choice when it comes to adding art to your col­lec­tions. We’ve been work­ing on this for over a year and we are now so happy to be of­fer­ing it to you be­gin­ning with our De­cem­ber is­sue!


P.S. We are al­ways look­ing for ways to im­prove your abil­ity to con­nect di­rectly with gal­leries across the coun­try. Have any ideas to help make this process even bet­ter? Email me di­rectly at ed­i­[email protected]­ernart­col­lec­
