Today's column highlights three art-related sites to explore.
✦ Artifex Press ~ Looking for digital catalogues raisonnes? Devoted to the digital publication of catalogues raisonnes, Artifex, launched in 2012 and based in New York City, is offering, for an unspecified period of time, free subscriptions to its compilations of works of Chuck Close (Chuck Close: Paintings 1967 - Present), Jim Dine (Jim Dine: Sculpture 1983 - Present), and Tim Hawkinson (Tim Hawkinson). It plans to produce online catalogues raisonnes on the work of Tara Donovan, Robert Irwin, Agnes Martin, and Richard Tuttle, among other artists. See the Events page for news of panel discussions, demonstrations, and launches. Earlier this week, for example, Artifex presented panel discussions on preparing and publishing digital content and researching artists working in nontraditional media.

✦ Art Crit Zingers ~ This site describes itself as "a curated project that invites practicing visual artists . . . to submit the most memorable remarks said to them during studio visits and critiques." The best submissions may be compiled in a future publication.
