The Weems International Artfest was superb, the art exhibited there gets better every year. Many of the top artists in the Southwest participate: Chris Morel, Kristin DeSantis, Dan Stouffer, B.C. Nowlin, Russ Ball, Sarah Blumenshein, Fermin Hernandez etc. etc. Some of us have been a part of Artfest for many years and it’s interesting to see the growth and maturation in our expressions. The recession in our national economy may be affecting sales somewhat but it is not making a difference in the quality of the works of art nor in the amount of works being produced.
- “In human life, art may arise from almost any activity, and once it does so, it is launched on a long road of exploration, invention, freedom to the limits of extravagance, interference to the point of frustration, finally discipline, controlling constant change and growth.“
Susanne Langer (1895 – 1985)
