    Hellooo Jealous Curator-
    I wanted to give you a heads up that the fabulous Wayne White will open a new exhibition on March 31 titled I Say A Lot of Things. Shoot me an email if you want me to send images–probably won’t have anything until close to opening as that’s the way he rolls!

    I check in to your blog frequently–good stuff J.C. Keep up the great work!

    I love your site! Just found it today! Please, before I spend more time in your black hole (it’s sucking me in), do you reveal your name somewhere and how do you get all the pictures of the art works? Are there copyrights?

    hi there : )
    my name is danielle.. but i keep that pretty quiet! i find all of the artwork from online portfolios, and since i’m only saying good things about it, none of the artists seem to mind 🙂

    Dear ‘Jealous Curator’

    Pleasant greetings to you

    Hope you would find this post in great spirits.

    It takes a great delight for me to congratulate The Jealous Curator for appreciating art and its forms. Moreover, providing a reputed platform for various artists to talk about their creative work and reach out to a large number of audiences.

    Just like life, art has different perception for different people and the excitement is in the journey of it and this is exactly, what makes it interesting to create a work of art and let people have the freedom to view it with their connotation of it.

    I am Gopal Namjoshi, an independent artist from India, practicing for past 25 years and, have explored many diverse forms of art. My recent work ‘Spring Is In The Air’ received rave reviews from the art lovers back home but, as every artist, I would like expand my borders and present my work to the global audiences.

    The Jealous Curator being a notable platform, I am getting in touch with you to see if you might be interested in posting about some of my recent works.

    I am sending you the link to my website. Please have a look. You can get in touch with me if you have any further requisites or queries.

    Looking forward to a positive response.

    *Please find the links to the website / attachments of the blog post and photographs.


    Warm Regards
    Gopal Namjoshi
