Abstract Art Online ~ Legacy


From May 1999 through June 2007 Abstract Art Online functioned as an online art journal devoted to abstract art, primarily in New York City. There were 3 major components for AbArtOnline - Artist Profiles, Art Reviews and Essays.  In 2001 a Conversations series was launched in which Editor and Publisher, Joe Walentini, conducted interviews that included artists, gallery owners and an artist/critic. The journal was published monthly with the exception of the reviews which were published weekly.

In total 56 Artist Profiles and Essays were presented with approximately 450 art reviews published. This Directory includes links to legacy samples of the writing.  Click on link above each of the image or the images themselves below to get to the corresponding pages.
