Art and you and purchasing or trading art so that you have more original work in your environment; an essay by Robert Pincus

Art and You.

Robert Pincus, arts writer and author from San Diego, offered these thoughts about collecting art at a symposium sponsored by Shreveport Regional Arts Council.

Hope you will read his words. They resonated well with Talbot and myself, avowed artists as well as collectors.

Then, if you are moved at all, go spend a few more dollars on a another piece of art. Yes?

Robert Pincus' thoughts on collecting art.

At top: "Pink Hammer," pen and inks, 2014, Robert E Trudeau. To be seen and sold Sat, June 26, during the Artist Studio Tour at 912 Monrovia St, Shreveport, or by messaging 318 272 6045. Inspired by Clyde Connell's papier mache-encrusted art hammer. It is subtitled, Pray to God but Hammer Away.

Also at 912 Monrovia St on the Sat tour will be oil paintings by Talbot Hopkins Trudeau. And you can enoy a visit to her charming garage-apartment studio.
