Message from the Chairman
Our planet is now in an exiting era born out of the best and worst of times. Today, to meet a challenge and to succeed, requires a new perspective, as well as inventiveness and daring.
For every cloud there is a silver lining goes the old saying and, for ArtworkXchange.org, the silver lining arose from the Coronavirus pandemic.
For a number of years now, our group was searching to find a venue in order to establish a much-needed institution in Downtown Montréal. The idea was to create a private type museum which, unlike other museums, would focus on art appreciation and, in particular twentieth century paintings and fine art.
The physical space required however was very difficult to find and, the project lingered on. Then, as though struck by lightening, the world suddenly changed; so did our social and private habits and way of daily living.
With our new status quo, our group took a major decision. We would build our museum, as soon as we could, not in a physical, but in a virtual manner.
We decided to assemble our artworks on line and, to hang them on virtual walls resembling real life by accessing the latest interactive technology. Needless to say, ArtworkXchange.org has become an instant success...
Our “Raison D'être” is, not to compete with the plethora of serious and well established commercial online galleries, but to be different. We want our members and the public at large to enjoy our online museum, to browse through and to smile. We want people to wander at their own leisure, through the various showrooms and, to experience art exhibits as they would in a real-life venue, discovering old previously unseen works or meeting high quality new talent.
Here, we will exchange ideas and interact with art lovers, seasoned professional art connoisseurs, or brand-new novices.
At ArtworkXchange.org, we are ready to meet you!
Please come join us and experience the buzz and exhilaration of seeing art at its best in this state-of-the-art museum-gallery!
