I love to look at art, going to art fairs, and attending opening receptions but there is a political aspect to me that is entertaining, intimidating and frightening.
Succinctly put, creating art is not just about having a vision. Ask any working artist. It’s about how you can translate the ideas in your head into something tangible and then finding a way to explain what it is to everyone else. And then to find a way to make it sell.
Art isn’t easy so best of luck to all the artists hustling around town this weekend.
Here’s a section fromSoundheim’s Sunday in the Park with George which gives an inside glimpse of at artist at his own reception.
