Are Art Galleries A Dying Breed?
How Can We Help?
Are art galleries a dying breed? Art galleries have always helped the artist in the past to get their works noticed. People came from all over just to see the exclusive painting by known and unknown artists. It wasn't until the boom of the internet artists found another outlet to share freely with the world their work and how easy and accessible it is now for buyers to purchase art online by the artist promoting themselves to the top. So the question now is, how important is art galleries by today's standards.
How important is it?
As an artist myself I can't wait to break down one of my paintings to see the reaction of people when they encounter Da Bridge Effect, it's rewarding within itself. Art galleries are also an institution for creativity, where people can glance and take pictures with their cell phones, holding on to the memory of that particular painting. As a digital artist, it's hard to get into Museums where fine art is more dominant and accepted but I also believe that can change as well. From digital artist to photographers, From fine artist to mixed media artist, we all have a responsibility to the public to keep art safe, fun, meaningful, inspirational, beautiful, mysterious, and at all spontaneous, as it can be. Til the next time U rock and God speed.
The importance of art galleries is innumerable! They offer again a place for an artist to sell their work and on top of that, bring artists together as a community to sign and sell their work in person. If the work meant something to you, meeting and speaking with the artist behind the work, should bring more meaning to that art piece. I take my hat off to all art gallery owners because I see what goes on behind the scenes of maintaining an art gallery and the up's and down's it may incur. I love art galleries that incorporate live music into the event bringing more life to the party because it's just that. It's also a social gathering where people can discuss relevant issues and topics that matter to each and every one of us.
