THE JOY OF ART, # 24, Art Elders
During these insecure times let's savor the quiet joys
of art at Museums, Galleries, in Life, and within ourselves.
While in the 1970s roaming the beaches in the Hamptons NY
I’ve met a bunch of Art Elders. They are pretty outspoken, and
tend to agree that “Art is increasingly literary, and as literature
is bad” (Donald Judd).
They are composed of stone, shell, and plastic, and measure
from 3.5” to 5.5” (9 to 14 cm) in height.
I want to share the joy of creating art - free of issues and trends.
“No Rules”, David Smith. Whereas the spirit of the Bauhaus
economy guides my art, play creates it.

happy / There is no forgetting that one was” (W.H. Auden), First
