Ruth Bernhard

Charlene and I went up to Petaluma to see the Ruth Bernhard (Google search)exhibit at the Barry Singer Gallery. One of my problems with the "art scene" is personality often overshadows accomplishment. As we looked through some very nice images, but then looked at $5k price tags, I was struck by how I could spend a hell of a lot less to get images that would provide me at least as much enjoyment and support currently practicing artists.

I've personally commisioned and bartered for many pieces of original art from friends. When I have walls to hang things on, I prefer to hang things that have meaning beyond the pretty picture. And the meaningfulness has to come from me - not just from the artists reputation.
