Art is in the eye of the beholder.
Now that my plans to open an art gallery are posted for the entire world to see, I have started to have some very interesting conversations with some very talented people.
Unfortunately, the conversations seem to be following similar lines…
CTH – Wow! Your work is really good. Have you ever thought about exhibiting?
Artist – No, it’s just a hobby and I’m really not good enough.
Pffft… look around people. Art is everywhere. We have all seen works that make us scratch our heads and say, why on earth did someone pay money for that? Art is in the eye of the beholder and we all have an inner artist that the world should be allowed to see/hear/feel.
Art is primarily about expression. If you can express yourself in a way that provides you an outlet whilst making an impression on others, then your job is done. If your art then inspires others to make positive changes in their own lives, then you have truly succeeded.
This is why one hundredth gallery’s tag line is express | impress | inspire.
Take a chance… as it is likely that you are good enough!
