What Is Art….Do You Know… Part 1

As an artist I belong to different groups.  One is an monthly  Artist’s Forum where  members exchange ideas and tell what they are working on.

Online is a bit of a different matter. Especially on Facebook–the artists groups always seem to question exactly what is art.  There never seems to be a peaceful or calm resolution.

I don’t know if it is because online.. people exhibit a different online or web personality. But this topic stirs up the wildest of critics and never seems to reach a conclusion.  Sometimes people rant and someone ends up quitting the group.

I guess since the earliest cave person started to draw on the cave wall—there was a critic.  Homer from the next cave, probably said “Hm–don’t like your colors or shading on the great beast you have drawn–Ugh Ugh…”  Then the artist promptly decked Homer.

So since the early days—art has evoked passion—devotion—and endless contemplation.

  1. I don’t think art can be defined by any one person. Merriam Webster says.
    a : the conscious use of skill and creative imagination especially in the production of aesthetic objects; also : works so produced
    You just can not argue with the so called “knowledgeable”.
    My definition of art is this:
    Art washes away from the soul the dust of every day life-Pablo Picasso
    I try to appreciate every form of art by everyone. I try to see something good in all art because art is good for us all.
