Times, They Are A-Changin’
I’m a late adopter of social media, and late to let go of tools I love. But I’m aware non-monetized blogging is “dead” and increasingly find that people prefer their media in bite sized morsels. Many artists post incredible work on Instagram that is never (or not yet) added to their web portfolio. And while I do stay on the pulse of the contemporary art world, those countless in-the-moment findings are almost never reflected here.
So I’ll be opening up the format of SWS to include both regular posts, and less formal brief posts with a feature image, and the artist links/handle. I will also no longer limit myself to one post (or very few) about each artist over time. This is the best way for me to keep the SWS archives in place and put out a larger, more current fresh crop of imagery. It will also allow me to focus appropriately on my health and related pressing matters in my non-blog life.
My Instagram will have a slew of other artistic/creative content that is not cross posted anywhere, so follow there if you’d like.
All artists I post will also have some of their work shared to Pinterest if you prefer that format.
Thanks for bearing with me! I’m not sure how this experiment will turn out, but I hope it works. 🙂
