  •  Many artists today suffer from the same thing (4.00)
    that afflicts most people - they want instant gratification without having to actually do any work. A lot of young artists know that people accept abstract and conceptual-heavy work and so they go straight for avant-garde, out-there work that does, in fact, pander to current trends, without putting any effort into learning craft and technique first. IMHO this cheapens the work of artists who came before them who broke the "rules" of art because they first earned the right to do it by learning what the rules were in the first place.

    Those who deny freedom to others, deserve it not for themselves; and, under a just God, can not long retain it. - Abraham Lincoln

    •  Never looked at it that way (4.00)
      I just thought that they were lazy.  Like the say, hey!  That piece sold for $1200, I can do that.  The artists at The Brewery are awesome for the most part, but there are some there that I can do without.  You should check out their site.  Not all the artists are listed, but there are a few that are really good.  

      Speaking of which, there is a lady who has a studio there who makes jewelry.  I can't remember her name, but I think she'll make what you were talking about.  We'll be heading over there next week, so if I see her, I'll grab her information.  

      Smoke the holy chalice, got my own religion...
