    Art We Love & Why – I Am a Camera

    When photography first came along, many artists turned up their noses and asked, where’s the “art” in a photograph?

The works featured here only hint at the diverse...

    Art We Love & Why Provincetown- Landscape

    Art We Love – The Lay of the Land For some people, “landscape painting” may conjure up an old-fashioned, sedate art form – something to put over the sofa. But every artist sees the world around us through a unique lens, and the landscapes here are anything but staid. They’re also a reminder of the...

    Art We Love & Why: Living Legends

    In Japan, the artists featured here would be formally recognized as “Living Treasures.” Each of them has had a long and celebrated career spanning generations.

    Art We Love & Why – Small

    Art We Love & Why- People

    Art We Love – We the People The human figure, people,  has been a favorite subject for artists ever since they first started scrawling on cave walls thousands of years ago. Every age has had its artistic take on the human body, from idealized Greek gods in marble to multifaceted cubist physiques. The work here...

    Art We Love & Why: Bravado

    Art We Love & Why – The Bold and the Beautiful As is true for most of us, there are some works of art that draw me in instantly. But It’s only when I get closer and understand more about a piece that the initial infatuation may turn to love. I admit I’m a sucker...
    Art We Love Black & White

    Art We Love & Why: Black & White

    Art We Love – It’s Right There in Black and White For many people art is all about color. Each of us has emotional responses to specific colors (don’t get Barbra Streisand going on orange) and lots of us even dream in color. But how do you tell a story, provoke a reaction, or pull...
