Art Aviso is an online arts community dedicated to connecting and empowering artists, galleries and art lovers. Art Aviso provides like-minded people, opportunities to share their work and creative ideas, helping to facilitate interaction and collaboration amongst artists, creators, galleries and institutions. Designed and developed in Melbourne, Art Aviso is a resource for artists and enthusiasts worldwide, harnessing the communicative power of the online space to draw people away from the screens to real-world events and exhibitions.
After a lifetime as a practising Artist and a number of years operating a Commercial Gallery in Melbourne, Australia, Beth Hulme was inspired to create Art Aviso – an online platform and resource for Artists and Galleries/Art Institutions. Seeing the limitations of conventional advertising threads for Galleries and a lack of a recognisable path for Artists to find opportunities, and form valuable collaborations and connections, Art Aviso was created.
As important as the online platform is in initiating connections, we believe that an essential element of any Artistic practice is the experience of exhibiting work in a professional, supportive Gallery/Art Institution environment and connecting with other Artists, Art Lovers and Galleries in the real world.
We design our real world events in a responsive way, to address the political, environmental and economic climate we live in, and provide a platform for the art that is being made in response to our world.
Our exhibitions and events range from all participants welcome, interactive exhibitions(where we provide an instigator for the artwork) to small medium specific exhibitions, to large themed and curated exhibitions in Galleries and spaces of significance. Events are only open to Art Aviso Artist subscribers.
Most events are conducted in collaboration with Gallery partners at no inclusion cost to the Art Aviso artist subscribers. Art Aviso does not take commission from artwork sales and 100% of profit from Art Aviso website subscribers goes back in to exhibitions and events for our artist subscribers.
We like to include a live element to any exhibition event, be it an artist talk an expert talk a workshop or performance in order to increase engagement with the exhibition.
Artist subscriptions are just $48 AUD per year and you can trial the platform for 7 days for free (we recommend you join and build your profile straight away, so you can really experience the site before the end of your 7-day trial).
