Columns of artists online

Speaking of online registries for artists, White Columns, the alternative space in New York, just went online with a very nice, Flash enhanced registry. No charge to be in it, but it is a curated registry. Take a look.

WC says its database — of hundreds of artists — is intended as a public service to artists, curators, writers and anybody interested in following the art scene closely. Further, they say, the registry “includes some of today’s most exciting emerging artists, all of whom are without gallery representation in New York City.”

Each artist is represented by 15 images which is a generous, one person show. Biographical information and statement is also online.

I peeked quickly at the alphabetical list and began setting up my own “personal list” of artists. I’m always looking for Philadelphia names and I found Rob Matthews and, while he’s not a Philly guy, Eric Brown, a sculptor whose show at Project Room in 2000 I remember fondly.
