We have come a long way, us creative artists.
Creative being the operative word as without artists' creativity, gallery spaces would be empty!
Gallery spaces have a overwhelming hold over the display of artists creativity. However, art history shows that great original artworks are remembered and honoured, but where they were first exhibited, there is little account of.
We, as artists, need to put ourselves first before exhibition space concerns. The General Public is attracted to vibrant creativity, new visual ideas and not so much with grand venues.
HEARTH is home, the original place around the family fireside.
In that world are Heart, Art and Earth.
HEARTH ART HEART EARTH
I propose creating art nodes with artists at the centre working on themes of heart, art, earth and hearth. Artists based studio-galleries bursting out from the centre.
Being round based as the vast number of universal models from atoms to galaxies, the centre is very strong and periphery flexible and absorbent.
Artists sovereignty is respected and each artists is honoured as an individual creative entity just like stars and planets.
Each has it's own gravity and satellites and creative space to operate in peace.
HEARTH Art Nodes will operate this way.
HANS can start up anywhere there is empty space suitable for creative work - empty offices, shops, studios, galleries, shopping malls...
Artists, generally, are peaceful, creative Beings who find it hard to operate in divisive, war infested spaces. Art only operates as propaganda in a war environment.
