Art walk...

So Murray and I went on the art walk on friday night before I went to work. oh what a lot of art we saw. the first persons art we saw was a guy name Michael Brake. ( www.mbrakepress.com )


it was very nice, and it kind of reminded me of the polaroid art in a way. i wished i could have talked to him about it, but there was a guy standing next to him talking about lighting on his work. We then started wondering around the different galleries. While i might not like to be interacting with large groups of people i do like to people watch and listen to conversations. So getting to listen to the people at the galleries all talking about the art made me laugh. i watched a couple of guys talking about these land/cloud scape done in tones of red and orange. I thought they was nice looking tho it reminded me of the old nuclear bomb pictures i saw from a text book showing the haze of the aftermath. Any ways the 2 guys was talking and i happen to hear the conversation...

1st guy: I don't care what you say, i don't like this."
2nd guy: But i think it looks nice...
1st guy: your wrong...

ah the fact art brings us together. I saw a few of my friend out and about one being the chainmail person from fair near the sca area. (Becky does the chainmail ties) She was out finally from hybernation. I can understand this. Also got to see Liz and her mom. We also met up with Paula and Allison, who had been to a ETSY meeting.
Art was every where, and i must say some of it was more to my taste than others. When a person made a angel out of human bones. (sadly casts of bones, i would have used the real thing) it was around 10 feet tall. i loved it. this was in the Leedy art Gallery (i think thats what it was called) But there was another piece there that had small bones and a bottom half of a dentures. The place i call the artist loft (3 floors of personal art making space) had a guy that created a 3d madel of a bunch of roks and a river on top of a tv. it went to the front of the tv and then the tv set was turned on to a station that was static, so it looked as if it was a waterfall. I found this to be amusing. There was some other amusing things that i liked.

I have recently started to think about art and finally have come up with a conclusion for my own personal thoughts. No matter what you do, you can call it art. Stack a pile of tires up and paint one orange, its art. Till a critic comes along and says its not art, it will continue to be art. So now i must work on my other questions i have. What makes a person that does not do art, have the ability to say as a critic that some thing is not art. Also i need to start to understand how art can be priced the way it is. Ah but this is for the future....

I've been spoiled by art prices at SF&F conventions. I goto art walk type of things and I'm shocked at the prices they have.

i have heard tho some of the people talk about there work in other places than conventions going for those types of prices. i think they know fans are human (for the most part) and don't always have the money.

Fi on the critics! It's still art whether they say so or not. :-)

not always, thats why i am wanting to figure that part out. of course they also save people from non art as well. A man can toss diapers filled with baby poop at a canvas and call it art. A critic can come along and make it back in to diapers tossed on to a canvas. they do save us and yet they also hinder us. I'm trying to keep a open mind of what the critic does. Tho i must admit its true that some art will still be art...
