I've seen a lot of art this summer... in artists studios, galleries, museums, and classrooms. The energy in making it is great, and yet many of the creators complain about the lack of support, or patronage they have received. As they struggle to afford a life making art, they are forced to make compromises and excuses. The artwork, because of the sacrifices, gets more expensive and the price placed on it eventually grows out of touch with the realities of the economics of the local communities. Are we making art for the Kings and Queens of the world? Are we making it to horde in our barns and cellars? Why is so much art unaffordable? Why do so many artists feel unappreciated? Why do so many people not have art on their tables, shelves and walls?
