Suggested Donation is a series of podcasts devoted to the arts in all forms. Hosted by two Contemporary Realist painters, Tony Curanaj and Edward Minoff, the conversations provide an insight into the creative mind. By speaking with both traditional and non-traditional artists and craftsmen, curators and restorers, they create a dialog through which we discover common ground across disciplines and spaces united by a love of and deep devotion to skill. To visit their website and listen to already published podcasts, which include interviews with ARC Living Masters Anthony Waichulis, Jacob Collins, and Patricia Watwood, click here.
The Sculptor's Funeral is the only podcast dedicated to student and professional figurative sculptors living and working today. Hosted by American sculptor Jason Arkles and produced in Florence, Italy, The Sculptor's Funeral discusses significant sculpture and sculptors throughout the Western European figurative tradition, analyses historical and current events relating to the production of sculpture and the culture in which it is made, plus the occasional interview with living sculptors and discussions about technical processes, techniques, and issues of a three dimensional, representational nature. The podcast is a weekly series, each episode airing on Sunday Mornings (European time). The ten latest episodes are available for download on iTunes, Stitcher, and many other podcatchers, and anyone can listen to the complete archive for free (as always) at www.thesculptorsfuneral.com.

Oil Painters of America Keynote Lecture on The Errors of Modernism by Fred Ross
"We have hardly begun to even consider all of the possible areas of thought, emotion, knowledge, and experience which have yet to be conceived, drawn and painted, in which the expressive, poetic and creative powers of the artists eye can once again enrich society, culture and civilization with the outpouring of countless masterpieces from the hands of our living masters."

Vern Swanson Interview: Sir Lawrence Alma-TademaClick Here to Listen to this Episode right now.
Below are some of the paintings discussed in the interview:
"The Finding of Moses, a large, wonderful, incomprehensibly beautiful painting by Tadema, that says everything you could ever want to say...stone, flesh, water, light, flowers, everything. The painting in the early 1960's was put up for sale and nobody would buy it. Finally someone bought it $200 and someone came in and asked 'What is that painting going in your alley?' So they went out and found that the people who had bought the painting had removed it from the frame and left the painting in the alley. So they sold it again to a restaurant for nothing. That painting came up for auction at Christie's in New York 5 or 6 years ago and sold for well over a million dollars and if it came up today it would sell for 4 or 5 million."
Vern also mentioned Alma-Tadema's friendship with the excellent Victorian artist James Jacques Joseph Tissot starting in their early days as students.
