Please read this Ning blog for some disturbing news about the fate of free Ning networks:
A message to all members of Visionary Art
In reply to this, I had added this comment to the blog (awaiting moderator approval, at the time of this writing):
I feel very strongly that you guys are shooting yourself in the foot!Where did your premium customers come from in the first place, if not from the free start-up little networks that outgrew their bandwidth and storage space when they became successful and their memberships expanded. This, in the not too distant future, will be the case with my own network. At that point in time, it was planned already to add extra bandwidth.But if you get rid of the free service, you won't have the start-ups that eventually expand enough to become premium customers! Was it not enough to get the google ad revenue from all these little networks? I concede, it is not much, but the potential of these small networks to start up and grow into premium revenue networks will have the rug pulled out from under them.I would hope that sanity will prevail, and short term gain from slash and cut will be abandoned for a more progressive view of long term opportunities and building of an ever growing customer base, instead of what promises to be a stagnating enterprise gasping for breath.Interestingly enough, I've seen sites go exactly in the opposite direction, making more of their services free as a basic service in order to atract a customer base to which innovative and atractive premium services can be offered.
At this point in time, I can only speculate about what is going to happen, but let me assure you all that I will do everything I can to keep this network intact. I had spent too much of my time and energy to build this network and the Public Gallery on weebly (which is fed by embedded content from here) to let anything happen to it.
In an e-mail to some friends I jokingly suggested that I am thinking about selling a kidney (preferably not my own) to keep the network afloat.
Seriously: we already have grown to a point where we would need premium services anyway in order to add to our ever growing collection of great art. Thus, additional storage and bandwidth would have to be purchased through premium services.
A solution will be found. It is not an insurmountable problem!
Aside from weebly, which has proven to be a reliable host for this website, there is also Google offering free websites with a number of attractive templates and easy to use features: Google Sites.
Strychnin Gallery presents in cooperation with C.O.P. magazine:
Featured in The Vault this month is sculptural artist Tim Roosen from Belgium. After building the largest artistic scale model of our solar system in the world, Tim Roosen returns to what he likes doing most: figurative art. His latest sculptures are all part of a little universe that he named “the Asylum.” The Asylum is a place for different creatures that have either escaped from the human world or are being hunted down and seek refuge in it. Every creature has his or her own story to tell. In November 2009, Roosen started a collaboration with German photographer Ansger Noeth, who took pictures of Roosen’s creatures. Directly printed on glass, Noeth’s signature technique, these photographs help bring the sculptures to life.

Andy Howell is a professional skateboarder and artist from California (USA). He is the founder of Artsprojekt, a curated platform that enables emerging and established artists to connect, collaborate and expand original art, designs and ideas with fans and consumers. It’s a playground in which the world's most creative individuals and brands can turn unique ideas into dynamic product experiences that best represent each individual artist and brand. Among other famous artists, Andy Howell represents Shepard Fairy, Clive Barker, and David D’Andrea. In cooperation with Strychnin Gallery owner Yasha Young, this alliance is set to be a spectacular one!
Originally from Perth Australia, KiD Zoom has become the one to watch in the Australian street art scene. He recently collaborated with Ron English at Worlds End studio in Sydney, producing a limited edition print series. Taking advertisement posters from local bus-stop shelters using an improvised key, Ron and Zoom re-worked these posters to create alternative versions of current ad campaigns.
“deerBerlin” – that is how Christian Rotenhagen addresses his native city Berlin. Living there for more than three decades now he has a lot to tell- via graphic-design, illustration, fine art and art installations. His works confront his urban surroundings, the decay, conurbation and agglomeration. The style in which he presents his art is a crossover of design and art in that way he lets his viewers enter in the street life of Berlin.
Edge of Love. An international group show curated by Andy Howell and Yasha Young.

The Book was launched February 10th - now there are only a few copies left!
IMAGINE THE IMAGINATION
The book aims to show the variety of contemporary surreal art including 100 works in different media: traditional painting and drawing, digital painting, fractals, photomanipulation, photography, mixed media, sculpture, traditional prints, and more.
The collection will be classified in 3 groups: Visions, Dreams and Nightmares, all this mental manifestation has been the source of inspiration for this revolutionary movement since the 1920s.
The mind gates are open to explore the deepest of the subconscious in this visual dialogue with the "other", in the omnipotence of dream, in the disinterested play of thought.
Check the full story in our Visionary Art Gallery - IMAGINE THE IMAGINATION - including embedded slide shows.

We are currently rebuilding our website with a new theme - so temporarily this site is functional, but a construction zone.
Headers, background and certain special new functions will be built in, respectively changed. Additionally, most Slide Shows used to be embedded from our Private Social Network on Ning. Since Ning discontinued Flash some time ago, the space where the embedded slide shows supposed to be is blank!
We are working to fix this as well, but with over 500 pages for artists alone, this will take time.
