Etsy makes the New Yorker

You need a subscription to the New Yorker to read the full article, but Patricia Marx’s ‘Made in the USA‘ gave some great promotion to Etsy. She mentions several shops by name with products. 

And…for those of you who couldn’t make the opening last night for the ‘Contemporary Voices’ exhibit at the Woodmere Art Museum in Chestnut Hill, it was packed solid! 100 artists curated by Sam Gilliam, with patrons from all over Philadelphia and NJ. A great turn-out, I’m hoping there will be a followup review. I had my piece, Azalea and Forsythia in the show.  I met Edward Loper, the venerable 93 year old Wilmington born painter who still teaches art classes.


Doris Richards on the right, is an old friend of my mother’s. She came out from Princeton for the opening, I hadn’t seen her in almost 40 years! Once a costumer designer who worked on Madison Avenue, Doris is still a wicked ice-skater.

    Congratulations on the opening. The Museum looks very impressive! I think Etsy shows that the efficiencies of online transactions can be extended into any medium. It can only be good for artists to have a direct line to collectors, if only because they’ll use the commission to make more art rather than pay for the gallerist’s designer suits.

    Once an artist begins marketing online, they begin to appreciate the gallerist’s challenges….and the time spent on creating publicity. It’s just another job the artist now has to do him/herself.

  3. Congratulations on the show. It looks like it was a great turnout.
    Is that a kind of guggenheim stairway? Wish I could have made it.
    Your right about the work involved in marketing online, especially
    for us computer neo’s. But I think it can be worth it. That is a great photo moment with your Mom’s old friend.

    Arn, that’s the upper level where they show most of their permanent collection.
    It’s a lovely historic building and they’re expanding it!
    Nicely designed exhibit, too.
