This show is not for children! I want to start off with that. The content & language is often PG 13. That being said, I have surprisingly liked this reality show. I read many blogs that hated it...saying that it did not show the true artistic process, was not how real artists work, removed the sole from art...BLAH BLAH BLAH!!!!! I respect their opinions, but would like to say...RESPECT OTHERS OPINIONS! Isn't it amazing that so many artists want people to accept them & what they do without judgement, yet are some of the most self righteous judgemental people you'll ever meet?!? Anyways...getting back to the show. I really liked how it was opening the contemporary art door for so many that think of art only as Van Gogh, Monet...and other "masters". It was interesting to hear the judges thoughts on the individual artists & their work. Some truly favored the concept over the actual execution. I take issue with that. Ideas & abilities need to go hand and hand for a work to be truly great I feel. I felt that the right person won in the end (won't give it away for those who want to watch it). I sent in an e-mail saying I wanted to be considered for the next season of it...but have not heard back. I think it would be fun to set up our own local "Work of Art" here in Nashville with some of the art teachers. All meet at one school...have 2 or 3 hrs of studio time to create a project based off of a given theme. Everyone could bring a few supplies with them. Could be fun? What am I saying...any reason to get together with other artists/art teachers is fun!!! So if you haven't checked out the show, I'm sure it is somewhere online for your viewing pleasure. Oh...and let me know if you have your own "Work of Art" with your peers...would love to hear what you do & how it goes!!!
