Announcing Our Name Change to “ArtNectar.com”
We have some exciting news to share with you! artnectar.com will soon be changing its name and become ArtNectar.com. (Our little elves are currently working on the transition.)
Why you ask? Well, here’s the deal. We want to take the website to new dimensions and expand on what we already provide to our readers. While Gilbert Musings was an interesting name to give to the site upon inception, it really gives doesn’t convey “art and culture” like we’d like it to in our brand self-image and most importantly, to you our followers. In order to take the site to new heights some changes need to be made along the way.
Art Nectar summarizes exactly what we are about; our content is the sugary sweet goodness of all things art and culture related. The new name will carry us over on our future endeavors with the site, which include the addition of an Art Forum, a Flickr Photo Group, brand partnership, design contests and eventually an e-commerce site.
Don’t worry, we will still have artist interviews, artist spotlights, design highlights, art news and all the content you look forward to.
Sweet art and tasty culture! Take a bite and enjoy.
We will make an official change over announcement once it has been completed.

Jennifer Catron and Paul Outlaw: Imeday Imeday Ollarday Icklenay, is an extraordinary performance combined with a sumptuous dinner party experience. This exhibition transforms the Allegra LaViola Gallery into a banquet hall of epic proportions, combining performance and cuisine.

Drawing inspiration from Biblical and Art Historical references, the duo, Catron and Outlaw, present a feast for an apocalypse, and invite you all to eat, drink and be merry. They have created a spectacle spectacle so grand, you cannot look away, and shouldn’t, as those who attend are encouraged to participate.
