The Jealous Curator : ART FOR YOUR EAR

ART FOR YOUR EAR brings you stories from some of my favorite contemporary artists. When I studied Art History, the best part was, well, the gossip. I loved finding out why artists did certain things, what was going on in their personal lives, and behind-the-scenes details about other artists they knew and worked with. This podcast is exactly that ... inside-scoop stories from the artsiest people I know. You'll hear first-hand from these talented, successful, full-time artists (who also happen to be regular people with hilarious stories) BEFORE they’re in the Art History books. - Danielle (aka The Jealous Curator)

Today's project involves bad art, good friends, and delicious snacks ... win, win, win.

Jun 17, 2017

Today's project is about capturing the essence of your favorite place through collage. If that place is Venice, your collage could win you a week's tuition at an art academy in Venice this summer. Just sayin.

We're heading to the grocery store for our art supplies this week. (Feel free to buy ingredients for s'mores while you're there!)

Week 2 of AFYE Summer Camp is all about making the first mark, or better yet, getting someone else to do it!

May 20, 2017

Everything a good summer camp should have: art projects, new friends, and gossip! Project number one is all about daily habits.

May 13, 2017

Ahh, spray paint never looked so sweet. I am beyond thrilled to have American artist Mando Marie as my guest for the final episode of AFYE Season One, and I have to say, it's feeling very 'full circle' for me. Take a listen to find out why.

Imagine if you will, a little girl growing up on a kibbutz in Israel who now travels the world - her suitcase filled with tiny hammers and shards of colorful ceramics. Well, no need to imagine because I've got her on the podcast! Zemer Peled is my guest.

Apr 29, 2017

The moral of this episode - show your work to random people in pubs because it could be life changing. London based artist, and self-described 'pencil snob', Nettie Wakefield is my insanely talented guest today.

Apr 22, 2017

How do you make big white canvases less scary? Paint them pink! Magical forests, pattern-covered mountains, Sasquatches, small towns, a question about beaver tails, AND a fellow Canadian ... painter Meghan Hildebrand is my guest today.

Apr 15, 2017

Painting ... AND hand sanitizer, turpentine, giant BIC lighters, axe throwing, chips 'n dip, Degrassi Junior High, Robert Bateman, and constantly taking risks. Yep, that almost covers my chat with Toronto artist Brian Donnelly.

Apr 8, 2017

Funny art - combine that with hand-lettering, gouache, and some tacky cats and I'm all IN. Melbourne based artist Anna Hoyle is my guest today.

Apr 1, 2017

Functional ceramics that can be found on shelves in lovely stores around the world, AND breathtaking installation art that hangs in galleries around the world ... yes, all of it's created by the same artist. Molly Hatch is my guest today.

Mar 25, 2017

Artist, designer, shop owner, author, and mother Cat Seto is my sleep-deprived guest today. She loves her home in San Francisco, but I'm quite certain that her heart belongs to Paris ... and its pastries!

Mar 18, 2017

Full-circle moments, loops in life, and starting over ... even when you thought you were done. Also, delicate jellyfish alien creatures. Rhode Island based artist Jenny Brown is my guest today.

Mar 11, 2017

My first thought was, "Wow, amazing photographs!" ... until I realized that they were paintings. LA artist Samantha Fields airbrushes layers and layers and layers of misty paint to create the most ethereal, absolutely stunning paintings that will leave you thinking, "Wow, amazing paintings!"

Mar 4, 2017

Cool, smart, funny, generous, and passionate - LA based artist Aaron Smith is all of those things. He also has an amazing beard, as do most of his gorgeous, large-scale, candy-hued paintings!

Feb 25, 2017

Banana dolphins, half-eaten birthday cakes, and bourbon with a twist! I'm getting the inside scoop on the paintings of Lori Larusso - cute and funny on the outside, thoughtful and clever on the inside. Yum!

Feb 18, 2017

Found images covered in dots, masks, tape, paint - and under all of that, an artist who found herself through working with those found images. Italian artist Naomi Vona is my guest today.

Feb 11, 2017

I've always imagined Elise Morris lying in the grass, under a sun-dappled tree with the California breeze dancing through the leaves. I guess we're going to find out if that's how she actually works. Or not!

Jan 28, 2017

Today we're taking a little trip into the woods, to a magical place called Yawnder. I'm talking to Canadian drawist {that's an artist who draws}, Jay Dart.

Jan 21, 2017

Beautiful, funny, smart, and yes, very timely. I'm talking to Kentucky-born, Brooklyn-based artist Natalie Baxter about quilts, tassel-covered guns, and sparkly gold flags.

Jan 14, 2017

From a little girl cutting kittens and saucepans out of magazines at the kitchen table, to a full-time artist using those same {although honed} cutting skills to cover gallery walls with lace-like birds. London based Claire Brewster is my guest.

Jan 7, 2017

Beautiful colors, clean designs, and perfect stitching. On this episode I'm calling embroidery artist Jane Denton in summery New Zealand, from wintery Canada.
