Amateur Art

When an art becomes “mature”?

My recent post about visiting Amateur Art Fair brought me to this title which kind of categorises art.

I learned that it has its place and it brings something special – showing effort at first and althought there is always this word “amateur” leaving the feeling of lower quality in somewhat unidentifiable way, it has its own meaning.

It inspires in its subtle way of innosence not being heavy by other meanings. Instead, they were created in simple need of being creative. ŠP

In search for exhibition opportunities

Visiting The amateur art fair in Kotelna gallery Říčany – Prague outskirts

There is this friendly and aproachable gallery I found almost straight away while I was searching for tips on how I could ever show my artworks offline when I live in a small town where despite the promissing future in terms of infrastructure and cultural events, there is rather none than any possible or in some way useful options to get public feedback.

Utilizing the pleasing with the useful

I took the chance of this event as an explorative one and arranged for a nice afternoon with my friend so there was also another critique eye to add some insights to my effort…

It was really nice that the opening was set up on Saturday 2p.m. and so the gallery filled up with friendly audience all enthusiastically looking around at mix of artworks that proudly represents local amateur scene.

I think it will be a pleasure to put a reminder in my calendar for next year with a note “book a place to exhibit”. SP
