true or false

1. fine arts have always provided the venue for man's highest spiritual strivings.

2. is has always been the role of the arts to realize, in physical media, the ideals of what man could and should be.

3. art sets down a distilled expression of the human spirit, one that's tangible in form and accessible to all.

4. great art not only brings forth the ordered essence of human experience , but of the world se live in, this is what we call beauty.

Future Art

started reading a book, "The Extreme Future" (Top trends that will reshape the world for the next 5-19-and 20 years) by James Canton today. He's a think tank futurist. Some good thinking; but it occurred to me that he doesn't touch on art or creative endeavors (while other things may effect art.

So, thought I'd start a blog - or discussion as to the Future of Art or Art of the Future (same thing?)

Seems to me that many (now commercially successful) artists started or picked up on a… Continue

Melancholia, an all girl exhibit at Cranky Yellow

Melancholia is an all girl group show curated by Cate Anevski. Cate (and a few volunteers) have hand selected work by some of the most stunning female artists working today. The exhibition is a dreary mix of classical oddities, soft curiosities, and snowy circus dream-scapes.

This beautiful collection of work will open on December 6th in conjunction with the Wounded Bird Vintage Clothing Store (located inside of Cranky Yellow). The work will be on display through the end of February… Continue

Holga Polka Invitational Captures St. Louis

-Forty-two local artists use a cheap, plastic camera for stunning results-

ST. LOUIS (October 31, 2008): In this age of digital photography, forty-two local artists have taken the Holga challenge. Forget about using expensive, technology-laden cameras.

Staying Focused on What You Love

This has been something that has been on my mind for a while. I see a lot of sites where the artists are losing focus and being dragged here and there artistically. You can see it in a lot of portfolios. Their style changes dramatically or the types of images focused on changes dramatically. I am not saying this is "bad" but I think we should always remember what it was we were trying to express when we first decided to be artists. That is, if we want to become masters of our own… Continue

"Immediate Touch" drawing class at SLAM

I just finished my first studio class, in a series of 5 called ""Drawing: The Immediate Touch," at the St. Louis Art Museum, and it was excellent.

It's cool to take a class that not only introduces you to work you haven't seen before but also forces you to paint in styles and with techniques with which you're unfamiliar.

According to the SLAM web site, the class "will challenge your notion of drawing. Its inspiration comes from the Art Museum's featured exhibition The… Continue

What & where sells?

I'm curious what people's experience is regarding what sells vs what doesn't & where it sells best vs otherwise. Anyone care to share their experiences? I'm sure all would benefit from this type of discussion.
