THE EARLY SHOW:
COLLECTING EMERGING ARTISTS

Where does talent end and hype begin? A beginner's guide to spotting potential—and the art of the (beat-the-rush) deal
By Dale Hrabi | Wall Street Journal
WE HANG ALL KINDS of things on our walls—cunningly designed calendars, steer skulls, vintage Scandinavian rugs—but, for many of us, original art remains the holy grail. The thought of navigating the contemporary art market with its thickets of hype, however, can be intimidating. New York-based art advisers Thea Westreich Wagner and Ethan Wagner have made a career out of cutting through that hype, especially when it comes to the relatively affordable but unproven work of emerging artists. Well-known collectors themselves who have amassed over 800 contemporary pieces, the couple runs Thea Westreich Art Advisory Services, which since 1982 has been helping individuals build collections that vary in focus from Impressionism to video art.

It also helped power a wave of interest among collectors and dealers looking to identify undervalued female artists.

US RETAKES TOP SPOT IN ART SALES

global art market report at Tefaf Maastricht

By Clare McAndrew | The Art Newspaper
On Friday, 15 March, the art economist Clare McAndrew is due to present the findings of her annual art market report at a panel discussion held during Tefaf in Maastricht.

3D Print Show in London

BRAS AND GUITARS: WHAT PEOPLE TODAY ARE 3D PRINTING
3D Print Show in London
Video Journalist: Dougal Shaw | BBC London
3D printing has been threatening to come of age for a long time now. The organisers of the 3D Print Show in London claim it is about to change the world, in the same way the internet changed things in the 1990s. Whether or not it moves into the mainstream, advances in 3D printing technology are certainly allowing more and more intricate objects to be made, by a vast array of designers - from architects to fashion students.

The 3Doodler | Created by two American expats who met in Hong Kong (one an alum of the MIT Media Lab)

3D PRINTING PEN LETS YOU DRAW PHYSICAL OBJECTS IN THIN AIR
3D printers are the hottest new tech tool for makers
By Adario Strange | DVICE
The 3Doodler is a pen that allows you to literally draw tiny plastic sculptures out of thin air. Created by two American expats who met in Hong Kong (one an alum of the MIT Media Lab), the 3Doodler rapidly heats and then cools plastic extruded from its tip, allowing the user to "draw" anything from simple plastic doodles to complex structures. Aside from creating things like jewelry, toys, and art, the device can also be used to trace stencils of elaborate designs that can then be connected, a dynamic the team showed off through the creation of a replica of the Eiffel Tower.
