Think about it, if you could talk to the artist every time you purchased their music, or watched their movie and/orvideo, would you? That would be pretty amazing, wouldn’t it! With Santa Fe ArtWorld, collectors can communicate directly with the artist. Not only are collectors able to view the artist’s available inventory and find out which work is at what gallery, or available through the artist, they can actually get to know about the artist and about their work!
The current challenging economy has certainly been felt throughout the entire world, but many heroes are found therein. Within the art world, the artist and their representatives continue in their endeavors to create a better world and this they do through manifesting their dreams into something tangible called art whether it is creating it or delivering it to the collector. Some might say the artist perseveres despite all odds, but I think it is more accurate to say the artist lives with each creation as a rebirth of the artist’s soul and thus finds creation vital to life. As well, our galleries and the city of Santa Fe as well as many other cities preserve in their endeavors to bring art to the world in an effort to provide continued beauty and real quality enhancing life within the community and all those who visit, share, contribute and collect throughout the world.
Quote of the Month
The gem cannot be polished without friction, nor man perfected without trials. - Confucius
These have often been attributed to Thomas Jefferson, but also to Leonard Henry Courtney, Thomas Paine, Abraham Lincoln, and many others; Alfred Denning in The Road to Justice (1988) states that the phrase originated in a statement of Irish orator John Philpot Curran in 1790: It is the common fate of the indolent to see their rights become a prey to the active. The condition upon which God hath given liberty to man is eternal vigilance.
Thought of the Month
Santa Fe ArtWorld and the artists thereof wish to send our best wishes to all those in Japan and to recognize the goodness they have extended to their fellow mankind regardless of the trauma each has experienced individually.
It is with our deepest sincerity we wish to recognize how those of Japan have come together peacefully in support of each other in light of the most recent tragedy to their country. Not only do we hope that the whole world learns from this disaster, and how nuclear reactors do not withstand the elements of weather, but we also wish to recognize that the citizens of Japan have set a great example of a people standing together as one in love, compassion, and kindness in the wake of such devastating trauma. For that we wish to commend the Japanese.
We are deeply sadden that during a time of global crisis for all in so many various ways, that while we are cutting essential programs and aid for the good of all do to lack of resources, that we find the money to go to war with Libya so that further destruction ensues. I am not alone in my wishes that we could all love each other in peace and do the best for each other and the earth which sustains us without harm or threat of harm.
It is not up to humankind to control and destroy in the man of peace and avariciousness ñ it is rather that we are overlooking our role of guardians of the planet and all life forms including each other. When we choose to harm the innocent in the name of war or a lack of responsibility in our choices for energy, we not only harm people, but all animal and plant life including the least thought of living organisms of all: water, air, and soil. With each bit of destruction, we destroy that which sustains us. If it is not fair for us to kill each other on the streets, why then is it fair for us to kill each other in war? And in doing so, make great destruction to all other life forms on the planet. If we think about it, if it is not fair for us to kill each other in overt actions, then why is it fair for us to kill with pollution? Surely we build things presumably safe for the best interest of all; however, when we overlook safe renewable energy sources while selecting those which are the most profitable and the most destructive due to waste and consumption of precious resources even when operating properly, we have not made the right choices for ourselves or our earth and all other living beings.
Santa Fe ArtWorld is an art forum, but the voice behind the art is ever powerful. It is my understanding that artists wish to preserve the earth. When words are not heard, we all wish that the visual messages of our art will be felt.
