As you may have noticed (or not), I've been kind of behind with the blog for the past couple of days. If you also recall, I was asking all of you lovely readers for your advice last week! I had some fabulous suggestions and I'm working on making them a reality. We are coming up on Art Libs' one year anniversary and I would really love to take this blog up a notch! I want YOU involvement! Over the next couple of days, I'm hoping to unveil a new layout, and a lot of new material for you to read... not JUST features (although, I promise you I will never lose sight of this absolute fact: the artists and the art will ALWAYS come first!).
With that being said, one of the things I want to start is a discussion post. At least once a week I want to have a post where all of you input what you think! Where you can feel free to post WHATEVER you want (save a few ground rules which include; be respectful to other artists and readers posting THEIR thoughts. Absolutely NO harassment of anyone who posts something you may disagree with... healthy debates welcome... bullying is not.).
The first topic I want to cover is a very simple question that I KNOW we have all thought about at one time or another: What IS art to you? What defines an artist and their work. Is it restricted to something on canvas or film? Do you think abstract is true art?
Please comment and leave your thoughts! I'm going to leave this post up for a couple of days while I tweak a couple of things with the site. Anyone who I have asked to be on the site: do not fret! I promise I will still put up your work, just bear with me while I work out where Art Libs is going! Post, comment, discuss and be merry!
