Swipple

The concept behind Swipple is so simple, it makes you wonder why there aren't more sites like it. An online art gallery that exhibits the work of different artists from a wide range of styles, it's easy to navigate, simple to browse, and light on pretension. It lets the art sell itself — just like a good gallery should.

There's a Swipple Shop "because we enjoy the occasional trip down to the post office," the website quips, that sells a handful of products, but otherwise it's pretty straight forward. But don't take our word for it, go see for yourself.

Oh, and Swipple doesn't just exist for the digirati; there's a show coming up in NYC for those of you in the Eastern Timezone.

That's right: More than a dozen Swipple artists will be featured at Max Fish (178 Ludlow Street, Manhattan) during the month of February. A reception will be held from 6 to 10pm Wednesday, 1 February. See the flyer after the jump.
