Gallery Wall

Art Prints

I am exceptionally lucky in my life. I have one of the best jobs ever, Community Manager on Pixels.com where every day I meet and talk to amazing, interesting artists and photographers.

On Pixels, part of my job is to look after the many hundreds of groups we have there. Groups are places members may get together with their own discussions and featured image areas. All the groups have one thing in common and that is their great administrators. I regularly run contests for ‘my’ administrators, and one winner was a lady who runs a group called The Gallery Wall. Her name is CJ Anderson and she just won our MOST HELPFUL HOST contest

I asked her to tell us a little about the group.

I developed THE GALLERY WALL Group just 13 months ago with the idea that members, buyers, and collectors view it as they would a local gallery near them. The artists who wish to join must have a diverse art collection due to the weekly themes chosen for the exhibited works of art added to the group’s homepage each week. Submitted pieces to THE GALLERY WALL MUST be ‘Gallery Quality’ which means that the piece or pieces would likely to be accepted by a gallery curator to be exhibited and with the HIGH HOPES of selling!

So, how are THE GALLERY WALL member’s images selected that are submitted daily? I approach to viewing the members artwork as I do when I make a trip to galleries and museums. They are a source of delight and stimulation. I don’t go through the images quickly or haphazardly. If I do? Then I have not SEEN the art. I let my eyes rest on the piece for at least a few minutes. Sometimes I tilt my head to the side and stare at it again from a different angle. As in tasting fine wine, swishing the wine around in my mouth and across my taste buds, viewing art requires giving my eyes some swishing time. So if my eyes are my taste buds when it comes to art…THEN I’M GOING TO SWISH AWAY!

The appreciation for the many mediums THE GALLERY WALL accepts is tremendous! From oil, acrylic, and watercolor paintings, to pencil, ink, and charcoal drawings, photography which allows us to be taken to places we could only imagine traveling to, and the abstracts that stretch our imagination to heights we never thought possible! THE GALLERY WALL is truly an ‘Artist Colony.’

CJ has actually won a few of the contests I have held for the group administrators and is among the many ‘on hand’ people who make the groups such fun and so successful. After I announced the winner I then asked her to create a special contest for her members. Those entrants have the images here in this article. You can see from these few images why her group is one of the most popular. Fabulous work and real eye candy!

    Thank you for such a wonderful article, Isabella. Having my work featured in ‘THE GALLERY WALL’ on FAA has been both an honour and a thrill. CJ Anderson has created an artist’s home and studio of sorts, all in one. It is a pleasure to be part of such a talented group of international artists.
