It is important, as artists, art students, art lovers, art tinkerers, amateurs, hobbyists, forgers, and self-appointed critics, to be aware of what is going on in the fast-moving, somewhat chancy and expanding universe we call, for want of a better term “The Art World”.

For a much more light and newsy, general commentary on arty stuff, Hyperallergic, also online, are fun to check out. The links are below.
