Executive Director's Blog-Hello from John Blair

As some of you may know, there is a new Vincent Van Gogh exhibit  at the  Art Institute of Chicago that will be on display from February 14 to May 16, 2016.  Many in St. Louis are excited.  Some are planning a group trip to see it.  I like Van Gogh but I am not sure where I stand in relationship to his work.  I would like to experience the exhibit, but not sure if I will commit to doing so.

On my list of anticipated artists works that I would like to see would be any painting by Jean Michel Basquiat.  I saw one of his drawings at an exhibition at the Philip Slein Gallery in a show curated by Freida L. Wheaton two years ago.    It blew me away!  I took a picture next to it with as much as pride as if I had drawn it myself.  A few days later I showed it to a friend that dismissed it as the work of a ten-year old.   

My point is that art is a subjective experience.  With the various levels of education, training, and experience that different artists posses, there is no guarantee regarding what people will like.  There is a local debate among artists as to whether art buyers in St. Louis prefer figurative or abstract work.  Figurative artists often believe that abstract artists sell more than they do while abstract artists make the opposite claim.  My hunch is that no one knows with certainty what art works will resonate their intended target audience.

One of the questions each artists must ask her or himself, regardless of medium, is why do you create art?  What is your passion, your purpose?  I hope that with regard to MySLART.org's "33" shows, our guests artists will continue to submit examples of their passion with us.  There is a lot of diversity in our shows.  I suspect there could be even more.  Perhaps,…
