Feburary 21st, 2012 Phoenix, AZ – CantorArt.com is a new not for profit Web site focused on showing, not selling, the world some of the great artistic talent the Valley of the Sun has to offer. Visitors are welcome to explore the Web site and view various paintings and sculptures and then leave a comment or share with their friends on social networks. The site currently features 119 works from over 40 different Arizona artists and also includes other artists from around the world.
“We are really excited to show everyone how much talent is in Phoenix and use modern technology to help grow this market”, says David Michael Cantor of the Law Offices of David Michael Cantor. ”The project started off as a way to show friends and family the art collection that I have built over the years, but at an early point in the project we realized that it had much more potential.”
With over 40 local Arizona artists like Sergio Aguirre, Robert Anderson, Kelly Barrett, Kristin Bauer, Brian Boner, Ron Burns, John Burton, Bobbie Carlyle, Linda Carter-Holman, Elizabeth Cheche, Colin Chillag, Melanie Corradi, Ian Davis, Adin de Masi, Susanne Falk, Steven Hofberger, Luster Kaboom, Chad Knapp, David Lewis, Joseph Lorusso, Michael Machuta, Christopher Jantu Mana, Beverly McIver, Emily McIlroy, Brendan Ore, Susan Osborne, John Patrick, David Pettibone, David Quan(aka Luster Kaboom), Nathan Redwood, Alfonso Rosas, Bill Schenck, Andrew P. Scott, Albert Secunda, Gary Slater, Paolo Soleri, Tom Stephensen, Rich Tomes, Connie Townsend, Stephen Voita, and Bill Wetherill on CantorArt.com one might think that there is enough great art already, but David has bigger plans. “We have opened submissions up to any and all artists so they can send us their work for review and possible posting on the Web site.” David explains, “This will give them a platform to promote their works and hopefully sell them to a wider audience. Our goal is to grow the site continually and help new and established artists find a larger market.”
David has been a supporter of the local art scene in Arizona for more than 3 decades. He believes that there is an amazing wealth of talent in the Valley of the Sun. From purchasing originals to commissioning pieces that have gone on to be displayed in the Phoenix Art Museum, David is a proud patron of Arizona Art and Artists.
