Art Wins! Award-winning Art App

The Mac App Store editorial team rated Art Authority the best reference app in the U.S.

Art Authority, developed by Open Door Networks and Project A, takes the user on a elegant journey through significant art history. Art Authority boasts at having 3x the number of artworks of any other art app out there.

With the touch or swipe of a finger on your iPad you can tour exhibition rooms that are organized by period or geographical significance or get detailed information on artists and artwork. It’s a fun and easy way to view ancient artworks, contemporary works, and everything in-between.

The New York Times said it’s “an experience unlike any other.”

If you’re looking to expand your art history horizons from the comfort of your couch or while sipping a latte in Starbucks, then this high-tech art reference app is right up your alley. You can download it at the app from the iTunes store for under $10. We here at The Bare Square like anything that makes art more fun and accessible (read about the Egalitarian Revolution), so we’re joining the Mac App Store in giving Art Authority two thumbs up.

“Flip” over The Bare Square on your iPad!

Get some awesome art-related news all under the same roof–now including The Bare Square!

Created in 2010 by Mike McCue and Evan Doll, FlipBoard is an award-winning iPad app that allows you to read all your favorite news and uploads from friends. Named Apple’s App of the Year for 2010 and one of Time Magazine’s top 50 innovations of 2010, FlipBoard carries popular publications like the Economist, National Geographic, Rolling Stone, Oprah and The New Yorker…not to mention The Bare Square!

Based out of Palo Alto, this social magazine application collects the content of online magazines and social networks to present them in touch-enabled format on the iPad, allowing users to “flip” through their social networking feeds and feeds from websites that have partnered with Flipboard.

The Bare Square on FlipBoard in FlipArt--nothing to yawn about!

The Bare Square is now part of FlipBoard’s art section called FlipArt, a sleek digital magazine housing a few selected sources for art-related content like ArtInfo.

FlipArt takes the Twitter feed of The Bare Square and uses the information to create beautiful interactive magazine. All of The Bare Square’s suggested links and retweets show up as article snippets with enlarged photos and original comments from friends.

FlipArt is one of the nine categories under FlipBoard where you can customize the content based on your interests (tech, entertainment, world news, etc.)

The best part is–it’s free! iPad users can download FlipBoard from the App Store at no charge.

Flipboard can only be downloaded for the iPad, but plans for Flipboard to be on the iPhone is in the works. Make sure to follow @thebaresquare to get instant updates and news so you can flip through your own personalized magazine!

Check out the preview below. And if you haven’t entered the contest for free art from The Bare Square, click here!

Art At Your Fingertips

Comprising over 80% of the tablet market and 97% of tablet web traffic, the iPad is changing many industries, including art creation and consumption.

With the iPad’s innumerable art apps like the popular painting apps Inspire Pro and Sketchbook Pro, artists can create their masterpieces right on a screen. iPads are also a convenient outlet for artists and art-fanatics who want to exchange and connect with fellow art lovers.

For example, Oscar-nominated British street-artist Banksy has multiple apps which allow his fans to share street art and find his work. Sites like flickr and picasa display galleries upon galleries of art, and with just a swipe or a click, artists can easily share with anyone.

Here are a couple of examples of iPad art.

The piece below reflects such attention to every detail in the hair and lighting that I could have easily mistaken this as a sketch in someone’s sketch pad.

Portrait of actor Joshua Jackson done by Olga Shavrtsur using the iPad Finger Painting and Brushes App.

Below, another amazing creation on iPad! The subtle lighting and the realistic images of the tiny flowers impressed me. I really appreciate the choice of colors.

For many, art has always been more than just something nice to hang on the living room wall. Art stirs up a conversation about the ideas, meanings and artistic techniques of each piece of artwork.

iPads can facilitate communication and connection between artists and their fans in a physically different way, creating an “augmented reality”. And, iPad art can produce “conversation pieces” that accelerate and globalize the conversation.
