Happy Birthday !!!!!!!!

It’s our birthday !!!!!!

Exactly one year ago today we launched ourselves into the blogosphere.

Our intention was to provide information on the innovative Contemporary Art Practice course at Edinburgh’s Telford college. However in a short space of time we became one of, if not the most viewed contemporary art, educational blogs on the internet with over 34ooo hits to date.

Over the past year we have provided our readers with all sorts of fascinating information on contemporary art and artists in our “Fact of the Day” feature as well as links to web based resources and news and reviews of major contemporary art exhibitions and events.

In the coming year we intend to continue our ground breaking work and develop a range of new contemporary art ETC… features and resources.

Watch out for:

the contemporary art ETC… video channel, featuring student work and interviews with visiting artists

the improved contemporary art ETC… Flickr page

In the meantime let us thank all our readers and supporters who have contributed over the past year and without whom we would have perished in the depths of cyberspace.

You know who you are and we love you all.


**If you have any comments, requests or would like to contribute to the Blog please let us know.

Friday saw the beginning of our series of talks by visiting artists.

The 1st talk was given by Dundee based artist Louisa Preston who made an excellent presentation of her work, influences and inspiration.

After a number of years of professional practice has returned to education and is currently studying for a Master of Fine Art Degree at Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art.

The student and staff would like to thank Louisa and we look forward to attending her Masters exhibition later this year.
