This week Lorwen 'Connie' Nagle and David P. Curtis, both experienced oil painters and teachers, and Judy Curtis, art writer and historian, talk about the concept of beauty in art. Between the three of them, David, Judy and Connie cover the gamut of artistic topics of interest to artists and art lovers alike. At least they hope so! Tune in and see if you agree with them. If not, let them know. Facts are few and opinions are debatable....
Love of beauty is taste. The creation of beauty is art. - Ralph Waldo Emerson
Beautiful art is successful in portraying the artist’s most profound intended emotions, the desired concepts, whether they be pretty and bright, or dark and sinister. But neither the artist nor the observer can be certain of successful communication in the end. So beauty in art is eternally subjective.
