2. Glasstire. Not only does this site, named in honor of Robert Rauschenberg, cover Texas, it pays 30 to 55 writers annually to do it. The vast majority are freelance, but they're paid. There are reviews and all sorts of features, stressing the Texas character of the art, both artists who live there and artists-from-everywhere who show there.  This is a real model for the future. Its writers are smart and informed. And paid. Did I say paid? Paid. Not well paid, but hey, every little bit helps, unless critic/writers consider Rainey Knudson's last comment, that she's moving away from reviews to multi-media. I'm sticking to my notepad.
