The Benefit Of A Bad Art Market

by Mark Edward Adams on 9/1/2014 7:19:52 AM
12 Comments

Is this a good thing? Absolutely. This is a great thing. We are learning a skill set we would never learn in a good art market. In the process, we are creating some of the best art work in the last 30 years. As the economy recovers, I predict this next generation of art will be fantastic and will create entirely new movements. This creativity is derived from innovation rather than the need to repeat success. I know it is tough now but things will change for the better. [...]

There are times, of course, when the desire to work is present but the inspiration, at least initially, is lacking.

Dear Art Collector concludes - - Is Art an Investment?

by Carolyn Henderson on 8/25/2014 7:17:54 AM
27 Comments

Both I and my Norwegian Artist have always believed that art belongs in the lives of all people, not only those whose last name is Buffet, Rockefeller, Carnegie, Bush, Martin, or Gates, and anytime we place limitations on who can purchase it -- only those smart, savvy collector types -- then we are taking away something that rightfully belongs to all of us.

Your art may be an outward expression of who you are as an individual. It can potentially contain a chunk of who you are as a person -- a reflection of all the 'life marks' that have shaped your identity. How do those marks capture the marks you've made in life? Have you shared that story? [...]

How An Artist Works

by David P. Hettinger on 8/6/2014 7:48:51 AM
7 Comments

"Have you ever had a real job?" is a question I'm asked every so often. That question brings up my question - What do people really know about what an artist does to create a work of art? Hollywood has created an image of what artists do, but are those the true images of an artist? How many people see all the work that goes into art; the highs and lows that come with being an artist?

FASO Featured Artists: Artist Chris Turri

by Carrie Turner on 8/1/2014 2:05:48 AM
Comment on this

Artist Chris Turri creates metal sculptures that are inspired by native traditions and a desire to recycle discarded materials. He works primarily with copper, steel and stainless steel. Chris offered some thoughts about his love of working with metal, stating, "I love to work with metal. I like how it changes with the seasons, how it gets better with age and weather. And yet, metal is permanent: it lasts for generations. I am completely inspired by the New Mexico "experience" -the culture, the vistas the light and the shadows are so expansive and colorful. Somehow, that all comes into perspective for me when I work with metal." [...]
