The Art Reviews
Some people like to say the phrase "I don't know art, but I know what I like." My thought is that's really all you need to know to enjoy the art world. I've had the distinct pleasure of visiting many museums and galleries and one thing I know for certain is there are some breathtaking pieces of art out there. There are also some piles of garbage posing as art. These art reviews give you hints of what an artist or museum has to offer. If it sounds interesting to you, it's up to you to venture out to the galleries or find the artist on line and buy a piece of the their work. Support your local artists! Your house will thank you for putting up something original instead of a bland mass market piece of shit pretending to be an authentic painting.
The Semi-Permanent Collection
The art pieces in this semi-permanent collection are in many different media; oil, acrylic, digital, film, poetry, dance, etc. I have included the artist, a link to their blog or website, or what museum the work is in whenever possible. If I haven't mentioned the artist and you know who it is, please let me know. All artists deserve to be recognized for their work. I can't stress enough how important it is to buy art from local artists whenever you're able. It helps put food in their bellies and electricity in their light bulbs. Buy a piece that moves you and put it in your house or office because it's beautiful to you, not that it matches your sofa. Furniture changes. Art is forever. I've also included written poetry or recordings, short films, funny photos, and various other tidbits. Whenever possible, I have created a link to a webpage or blog so you can further look into the artists. Just click on the photo and be magically transported to their other works.
