RonTaylorCrouch.com – now live!

I just finished getting all the tweaks and technical issues sorted out for https://www.rontaylorcrouch.com and it is now live! You’ll see a lot of the same content/images of art, but it’s primarily devoted to showing the art – just the art. Not near as much long boring talk (ahem) as is on www.ralphart.com. Please take a look! If you see any weirdness, let me know!…

Coming soon! New website: RonTaylorCrouch.com

On advice of my web-savvy oldest son, I’ve started developing a new website that focuses on just my art: www.rontaylorcrouch.com. The Ralph Art Website Project website will remain as the place where I wander and ramble and go off on long boring tangents; the new site will be focused on showcasing the art without a lot of jaw-boning. All the jaw-boning will remain here on…

New – now sign up for email updates!

I launched the revamped Ralph Art Website over the weekend, and one of the features I’m most interested in seeing whether people use is the email update service. Here’s how it works – signing up puts you on a list I’ll use to send out email updates about upcoming exhibitions, new stuff on the website, and general announcements. “Oh fine,” you’re thinking, “That’s all I…

Updates to the website

Talking about technical updates to a website – boy, that’s some exciting stuff.  Okay, so here are the major improvements. New theme (re-skin) is cleaner, easier to navigate. At least I hope so Added some functionality (content delivery network) that should make pages load faster, which, on image heavy pages, is a big deal. Started hosting the gallery images on a photo sharing service, should…

Ralph Art Website relaunched

Woo hoo! The new Ralph Art website is now officially live!  I cut over the DNS for https://ralphwordpress02-ralphart.rhcloud.com a little while ago, so now the redesigned site is the one you’ll see when you go there. If you are curious or bored, the old site, with all its warts and poor display on mobile devices, is still visible at http://old.ralphart.com. The last redesign (mostly just…

New website!

Just doing the soft launch of the new Ron Crouch /  Ralph Art website. For now the URL is http://new.ralphart.org. After I’ve made sure I’ve gotten all the rough edges sanded away I’ll be changing that to http://www.ralphart.org. The old site is still at https://ralphwordpress02-ralphart.rhcloud.com — haven’t quite decided what to do with that. I may eventually point that at *this* site. If you see…

Coming soon (I hope) – prints!

I’ve recently become intrigued by the idea of producing a few giclee (or do you say “geclee”) prints of some older art. A giclee print is essentially a high-end inkjet print made using archival inks on archival paper. This interest was sparked by the desire to share a couple of specific works on paper for which I’m not willing to part with the original. A big…
