Hot art hashtags on Instagram right now

I am a huge fan of blogs and I always have been, especially those written by the makers, manufacturers, and distributors of product with art on it.  I use Feedly to organize and read all of the blogs I follow (well over 100).

Sometime last year my Feedly feed started getting really sparse and some regular bloggers started disappearing all together.  It was a mystery to me.  Where was everyone going?  Was everyone at a party that I hadn't been invited to?  YES!  Everyone is at a different party and that party is Instagram.  Holy jackpot of fresh and beautiful art.  I can't stop scrolling through art, art, and more art.

I discovered this week that the HOTTEST spots at the party are the hashtags #nss2015, #surtex, and #surtex2015.  The National Stationery/Surtex show is coming up next month. Hundreds of artists and manufacturers are toiling away making their best art and posting it on Instagram.  The above screenshot is the last 16 images posted on #nss2015.

I actually decided not to attend the show this year because I'm going to watch the whole thing unfold on Instagram.  I'm already spotting a lot of fun new trends.

So go check out those hashtags.  Your eyeballs will thank you!
