The Nature and Origin of the Arts
By Rudolf Steiner, Ph.D.

Let us imagine a great snow-clad plain spread out before us and upon it here and there rivers and lakes hard frozen. The neighboring sea is mostly frozen over close to shore; further out huge floes are drifting; occasional stunted trees and bushes lift heads heavy with snow and icicles. It is evening. The sun has alre ...[GOTO]

Places to exhibit There are not many places to exhibit, in this local area without having to join a art group. There are two but I decline to join as they do selection on the art work and no guarantee you will get your work in exhibition. It costs a lot to frame your work, and also the amount of hours spent on the work. There was a census for a gallery to be opened in the area, said it was not viable.

There was a group, the main problem is gett ...[GOTO]

Is There a Free Lunch For Artists? And other Stories The phone rang, I picked it up "Hillaiiillll?", it was my friend Sean. "Whatsup man?" I asked. He replied. "We're invited out for lunch so meet me at my studio at 12:30." When I asked him what the occasion was, he answered, "Rosie Myer wants to arrange a show for us in New York and also do a piece about the group in her magazine. We're supposed to meet at The Sweet Vidalia." Ms Meyer had been publisher and editor of The Canadian Art Rag for going ...[GOTO] Hillel 29 20 Sep 09 12:38 IST
How does spirituality, politics, technology, economics etc., play a role in who we are as artists? Thought I would just open the floor with some important questions about artists in today's day and age. As in every really great cafe a dialectic should be embraced over a good cup of tea or whatever. ...[GOTO] Abby 0 14 Mar 08 24:08 GMT
