Thought the art world was stuck in a past century? So did most of the world. That is, until Invaluable came along. The online art marketplace is bringing the rather antiquated notion of art auction houses into the 21st century, and now, the platform is allowing dealers, galleries, and auction houses alike to sell in the same space. That means that you, lover of art, will be able to access all the pieces all at once, so if you’re itching to redecorate or just looking to bring some culture into your home, you may want to check out Invaluable.

This marks the first time that the world’s premier art environments will be brought together in the same digital space, ultimately benefitting art collectors around the world. No longer will buyers have to go from place to place in order to find the perfect piece — rather, thanks to the digital platform, the middle man is all but eliminated. And with the new “Buy Now” button, enthusiasts will be able to make instantaneous purchases, rather than trading blows in attempts to outbid other interested parties.

Invaluable notes that its customers will have “unlimited access to the most sought-after arts and collectibles in primary and secondary markets from around the world,” and because the tech-savvy platform adapts to your taste, you’ll also “receive personalized recommendations based on previous browsing and purchase history.”

“We are working hard to unify what has historically been a fragmented market, and with the launch of ‘Buy Now,’ we are evolving our business to become the single destination marketplace for the most sought-after art and collectibles in the world,” said Invaluable CEO Rob Weisberg. “With a 67 percent increase in new buyers to the marketplace in 2015, the decision to expand our offerings was driven by customer demand. It will vastly increase the supply of rare and one-of-a-kind merchandise we offer — including both primary- and secondary-market works — making it easier to connect buyers with the things they love from the world’s premier auction houses, galleries, and dealers.”

Each participating gallery and dealer boasts a dedicated Invaluable page that gives interested buyers a full list of available inventory. To make the shopping experience a breeze, customers will be able to “favorite” certain items, or purchase others instantly.

“We are looking forward to working with Invaluable’s exceptional platform to expand our online presence and reach more global art buyers,” said Lucia Giudice Fucilli, owner of Puccio Fine Art, one of the galleries available in Invaluable.

And indeed, the online marketplace will make some of these dealers more palatable to a generation that may not have otherwise been exposed to this sort of art. “Invaluable has a firmly established footprint around the world and they cater to a client base that is very art- and antique-savvy, which is one of the primary reasons I’m excited to sell on their marketplace,” said Andrew Spindler-Roesle, owner of Andrew Spindler Antiques & Design. “I am always looking for new ways to connect with new clients, and I believe Invaluable will help us greatly expand our reach.”

Museums and art galleries have long encouraged an air of monastic silence so that visitors can enjoy the artworks and other offerings without being disturbed. But the curators running these places probably didn’t want total silence at the cost of any and all visitors coming through their doors. That’s one of the many scenarios unfolding as a result of the current coronavirus pandemic, however. To keep in line with mandated social distancing, museums, and art galleries throughout the world are either finding themselves shuttered by law or, in the rare cases they remain open, with drastically reduced footfall.

Blizzard Gear store leaks Overwatch 2 art, World of Warcraft expansion info
Overwatch 2

With BlizzCon 2019 set to kick off later this week, information has been leaked on the next expansion for World of Warcraft along with a new image for what appears to be the iteration of Overwatch.

The leaked information first appeared on the Gear store, but Blizzard has since removed the imagery. Fortunately, the images have been uploaded onto MMO-Champion. The first picture was artwork for Overwatch 2, featuring a series of characters charging into battle, which include Echo, an omnic character revealed at last year's BlizzCon. Despite the recent artwork featuring Echo, there is still no indication of when she will be available in the game. E-sports insider Rod Breslau says it's "likely untrue" that Echo will be announced at this year's BlizzCon.
