We Stand with Women in Art

“We are not surprised,” begins a letter co-penned by women from every corner of the art world. Signed by more than 1,800 women so far, it includes appalling claims of being “groped, undermined, harassed, infantilized, scorned, threatened, and intimidated by those in positions of power who control access to resources and opportunities.” These female artists are making a stand against entrenched sexism and abuse in the art world. This letter, and the corresponding article, follows…

Art.com Goes To MOCHA

You may have read about it already, or seen it on social media, but Art.com loves MOCHA. Oakland’s Museum of Children’s Arts’ mission is a great one —to “ensure that the arts are a fundamental part of the lives of all children through hands-on art experiences, arts training and curriculum for educators, and advocacy for the arts.” We already helped support LEAP, MOCHA’s  hands-on, library-based after-school arts program, and brought you information on that…

We See You, Vincent Van Gogh

What do we know about Vincent van Gogh? He’s rumored to have sliced off his earlobe with a razor in a manic frenzy. That’s the first thing that comes to mind for many. It’s dramatic, unfathomable and obviously quite memorable. But there’s speculation as to whether that’s how things really played out that night with Paul Gauguin inside that yellow house in the South of France. There’s even mystery shrouding Vincent’s untimely death at the…

Connecting Art + Kids In Oakland

Oakland’s Museum of Children’s Arts does more than help support the next generation of artists. They help kids express themselves through hands-on art experience, creating an avenue that leads lower-income children toward literacy, learning, and breaking through the achievement gap. We were saddened to find out that they’d lost funding for one of their most crucial programs: the Library Education and Art Program. LEAP partners with Oakland libraries, bringing arts education to local children at…

Looking Back at the Iconic Art of Vogue

New York Fashion Week is in full swing, and while the event doesn’t necessarily make us all want to sport the latest trends, it does let us reflect on the world – and evolution – of fashion.

Decorating with Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year: Serenity & Rose Quartz

Last year, Marsala was the highly coveted color. The year before that, Radiant Orchid took the reigns.

When paired together, they convey a serene sense of calm, something Leatrice Eiseman, Executive Director of the Pantone Color Instititue says we’re all in need of. “Evoking feelings of…

Our PR Pro Got Engaged! We Surprised Her With A Personalized Wedding Gift

Naomi knew it was coming. She’d showed James a ring she liked online, and not long thereafter she’d noticed it had sold. My coworker Lisa and I joked, “Maybe someone else bought it. Maybe James missed the boat!” We found out later that he didn’t end up buying that ring, per se, but he didn’t miss the boat either. A few months later, James planned a weekend away for the two of them. Two…
