Men's Health and Beauty Spa Services Canada Nova Scotia Artist Gallery of French Acadian painter Claude Edwin Theriault. Online artworks beyond mainstream now in the Digby Co.land of Maud Lewis
NovaScotiaArtistGallery of French Acadian painter Claude Edwin Theriault.Currently showing his extensive retrospective artworks,from 1980 to the present, sing web 2.0 social media platforms to promote the works;since all mainstream private and public funded galleries have an more heritage agenda not relevant to the more Shamanic and symbolist inspired artworks currently being produced by the artist.
The artworks were in Quebec and Ontario until Spring of 2018 when The artist moved them back to Nova Scotia; since you cannot become an influential presence without being in the Nova Scotia provincial scene. Since arriving there are showings in Artist Run Gallery Trécarré located on the campus of Université Sainte-Anne in the rural Acadian community of Baie Sainte-Marie Nova Scotia.
Even though the local mindset is not at all accustomed to seeing artwork of this nature, the accepting response has been surprising . Since it is seen as n infusion of visual dynamics the local scene has been eager to see, but not capable of creating themselves.
Since like all creative influxes communities need that source of perception that comes form away.Yet is from here as they say locally, since there is the Continuity of Community and the Community of Continuity mindset in rural Nova Scotia.Meaning everyone is very connected to everyone else, unlike big urban centres that are experiencing the disconnect
As opposed to the more Insular Halifax climate which has the standard default ..." We are not accepting new artist submissions at this time". Which is a polite and politically correct but useless and dated way of saying we are not interested,. Since Halifax always was and is still to this day very Haligoniacentric unto itself. It is the capital and therfore very bureucratic, neaning clicks that make up the Halifax Metro area clan .
Where you have to be "Connected " wuth the right people who nwever leave town , let alone venture 300 kms to the French Acadian shore and experience a culture differnt for their precious little 1723 Hollis St, Halifax, NS B3J 1V9 scene they feel is so cool , when it is simply Insular, as is there equally pretentious satellite AGNS at 3341 Main St, Yarmouth, NS B5A 1E7.
Bureaucrates ...there for the paycheck, hip replacement and the almighty pension. Which is great since self representing artist have never had such a wealth of free marketing tools at their disposals to promote themselves . By placing their relevant content in front of a targette audience interested in what they have to say on an artistic and intellectual level.
Like the Artmajeur platform that is currently getting more then 1000 visitors per day and ranking very well as you can go an see...
The newly set up ARTPal that is getting more and more traction...especially the Homoerotic section of Male Nudes mainstream Nova Scotia has not been able to get it's head around ...yet. But is learning to do so since it is ...no big deal at all in 2018.More like fresh air then Verboden of old 1970s.
Create a link to the Pinterest/malebeautyforum account with the many boards found there and backlink love starts to flow to an artist page...Or the even more wild and Yahoo/MSN owned Flickr/malebeautyforum page 7, set that up and it works like a charm. It all part of the new mindset of DIY. Since publicly funded mainstream will not do a thing for the self representing artist types. In these times of great social change
