Welcome to the launch of our revitalized site! It's a great time to talk about all the things there are to accomplish beyond just getting the site itself up and running—hard enough in its own right. A few goals come to mind right away. One is a showcase for interesting art, especially original prints made by local artists. I think most likely to be compelling are pieces created using novel techniques and applied materials. Artists very often find using experimental methods exciting. The vitality that gives to the work is appealing to viewers who love to share the freshness that innovation brings. It's not only showing the work, but also describing how it's done. In the course of it there will be plenty to say about artists' materials, their properties and subtle influences on the esthetics and innovation within the visual arts. Maybe that's too technical a discussion for some readers, if that's the case, then skip it.
I think the influence of new technologies is a hugely important topic that doesn't get enough attention in the everyday art world. Like all other aspects of our lives, there's a revolution sneaking up on the staid traditional world of art. Maybe that's scary, or the prospect of a massive shakeup of hidebound traditions gives you goosebumps just thinking about it. I guess we'll find out.
That's the starting point, there are endless topics to explore and write about, definitely a lot to say about the world of politics, science, health and healing. As long as it's interesting, or useful, it's worth including.
Stay tuned, upcoming years likely a bumpy ride! Stay aware—don't let way out judgments leave despair. Behold the real never fake news gives no huge burdens to bear. And me? Well I'm just here, the humble guide.
