AS Talk and Travel on FB
Parc Montsouris, Paris - Marilyn MacGregor
Wide-ranging, curious, insightful, intrepid - the ArtSmartTalk blog is a foray into the fascinating world of art in all forms, from all times, and by all types of artists. I write with a life's knowledge of making, showing, thinking and teaching about art, and a never-ending interest in human imagination and expression. Contemporary art, historical art, outsider art, architecture, art events, museum and gallery shows, and more. Sign up with your email to receive weekly notices of blog posts. Follow me on Twitter at @marilynartsmart to find news of posts and my work.
Just for fun, a weekly trivia question about Paris and France. If you know and love France, test your knowledge - if you don't, it's a fun way to get an idea of French culture, history, and daily life!
ArtSmartTravel Trivia quiz every Friday on Facebook
Good copy is essential for artists and art professionals, for websites, statements, and promotional materials. If you'd rather concentrate on making art than writing about it, I'm happy to help. With long experience as a studio artist, teacher, and published writer of articles about culture and art, I offer skills in writing for artists or art professionals that will bring a fresh new feel to your sites and materials. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can discuss what you need.
Art, Art History, and Travel
The Arts and Travel are natural companions, like creamy cheese and good wine, a soft breeze off the Seine and a perfect view, a bright morning and an interesting day to follow, filled with adventures and beautiful sights.
Come with me to see Paris with new eyes and find new pleasures and interesting new ideas.
Look for my small group PARIS ARTS & PLEASURES and PARIS & CATHEDRALS TOURS under TRAVEL. If you're planning your own trip to France or Paris consider a ARTSMARTTALK in person or by custom packet - find details under ART TALKS.
Girl with a Pearl Earring - Vermeer
Art History is a complex and ever intriguing subject, with much to teach about human acheivement and human nature. Postcard Art History is a doorway to the wide world of art of all cultures and times, with a choice of 10 week 'lessons' in the form of a postcard that comes directly to you. Choose from an interesting selection of themes - Supermodels, Glorious Food, Gods of All Shapes and Sizes, The Papparazzi, and more - a beautiful image each week and an entertaining, solidly informative story to go with it. Great as a gift for friends, family, children - and a treat for you!
