Just wanted to write down few thoughts about a local art gallery (Oriel Davies)
Small quiet town, not really much arty folk around… Exhibitions in the gallery are mostly very -very – very weird (strange). I love experiment and feeling of strangeness – as just one side of creativity. But why poor people have to think that only this is ART? Where are simply local artists? There was an “open” exhibition with entrance fee I couldn’t afford… Where anyway are works which somebody could have in ordinary comfortable home and simply enjoy them? I know there is good art created right now – look in International Artist Magazine (http://www.international-artist.com/iam/overview.aspx), for example. Who profits from promotion of weird and disgusting in art? Why feeling of peace and happiness in art is ignored?
