Art Listings Professional (ALP) gets social with website launch party and group exhibit

Featuring work by Charles Hackbarth, Sean Hadley, Andreanne Le Hudon, Marinko Jareb, Trevor Laalo and Ryan Rader.

ALP is six months old! Help us get this puppy off the ground the right way with a dose of visual art from Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal + music, performance, drinks and food.

"We've received a lot of encouragement from artists, galleries and art lovers. People really enjoy the blog and seeing what Casey and I come up with every day." explains Chris Healey, editor of ALP, "It feels like we are posting an exhibit for the 7th, more than curating, Casey and I each get one wall and we'll see what kind of crazy dialogue happens with our selections facing each other."

A giant twittering publicity machine for artists and galleries, ALP is a daily dose of local visual culture mixed with international news and historic art documentation; adding value to viewers and participants by context and careful curation, ALP has been designed to distribute art news throughout multiple social media networks and reach diverse audiences.

Thank you for reading this story…

More people are reading than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all, while striving to make it sustainable as well. Media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our main supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help. You are what keep us sustainable. has staked its existence on you. We live or die on community support -- your support! We get hundreds of thousands of visitors and we believe in them. We believe in you. We believe people will put in what they can for the greater good. We call that sustainable.

So what is the easy answer for us? Depend on a community of visitors who care passionately about media that amplifies the voices of people struggling for change and justice. It really is that simple. When the people who visit rabble care enough to contribute a bit then it works for everyone.

And so we’re asking you if you could make a donation, right now, to help us carry forward on our mission. Make a donation today.
