Art

Art is an amazing topic. It’s something that is described to be a process or art work of something that is a symbol that influences and effect either the senses, emotions and intellect or if not all of these into one item. It a creation that can make you feel different feelings all at the same time and can be set aside and stand out of the crowd from all the rest.

Art can come in many forms, cave paintings and sculptures and been known to have been found from over 40,000 years ago. This is a very long time and if you are to find such beauty in a good condition then it could mean a very good future for yourself and can make others very happy indeed. Another form of art would be  canvas artwork which is also very popular to a lot of people which also dates back to a few hundred years ago.

A brilliant human find to do with art would be the oldest piece of art which was found and it is over 75,000 years old, the art is of a series of tiny drilled shells which was discovered in a south African cave. That would have been an amazing find and has truly added to the creating side we have and just goes to show that it’s not just these modern materials we have to hand these days but it comes down to imagination and talent to.

Works of art can be very elusive as the art is always created for one purpose but then can also be looked at in another way and used for a different purpose in another one’s mind. This would explain the shire brilliance and can show you what an art piece can be, even if it’s something made from  canvas or if it’s a painting or a sculpture or even if some form of pottery. That is the beauty of art and it’s why it will always be a part of who we are and what we do as we will always continue to create these wonders to for fill our need to express our feelings and to show off out talents.

If I had to give someone a gift then you can never go wrong with giving them some art. I would personally give a painting or a print of a painting but if you have a bit of spare money that you don’t mind using up then would look into getting a piece of art weather that be a strange object or a painting or sculpture I think giving someone something that has history to it will be absolutely fabulous and the outcome will be breath taking.

Now that you have a little idea as to how long ago art has been around then why not let your friends know of the importance art has in our lives and yours. Are has know to become very trendy in our modern homes so it can also be looked at as a fashion icon as the art we all enjoy in any shape or form has something in common either way.

Framing Fine Art

When people consider buying a work of fine art, they usually focus on what kind of artwork they prefer – whether sculpture, painting or photography would be best for the space they have in mind – and then the details of what would be right within the medium, for example whether to choose a wooden sculpture or a metal one, an abstract painting or a figurative one.

All of these decisions are important, and getting them right is the only way to end up with something you’re really happy with at the end of the day. It’s worthwhile taking your time, discussing with friends or family, and going around galleries or searching online, such as on Art-Mine.com, to see what’s out there.

However, once all of these decisions have been made, there is often another decision, which is also important but often not given the consideration it deserves. That is the question of framing. Of course, this generally won’t arise if you’ve chosen a sculpture for your room, but paintings and photographs, for example, do usually require framing.

The kind of frame you choose will have more of an impact than you might think. It actually influences the impression of the work itself, and how it looks on the wall and the kind of atmosphere the piece as a whole contributes to the room. For this reason, it’s important to choose the right frame – right for the piece, right for the room, and right for you.

In some ways, picking a frame is a personal decision in the same sort of way buying art is something special to each individual. Some people can’t stand gilt frames, or anything ornate, while others hate thin frames, or dark ones. Never choose something you’re not going to be happy to see on your wall every day.

However, there are also aspects of the artwork that need to be taken into account. Not every frame will suit your piece – for example, sometimes a detailed, visually complex work will be best set off with a plain frame, as an intricate one will only detract from what’s most important – the work itself.

Your own sense of what is appropriate will be valuable here, but for guidance or for an indication of what sorts of factors are worth considering, you can speak to the person or organization you bought the work from. An artist will be able to tell you what he or she imagined for the piece when they created it, and although this isn’t necessary binding, it’s definitely something to consider. Similarly, a dealer or gallery director will be able to explain the formal considerations they take into account when framing works in their own space. They’ll also have years of experience which will help them work out what’s suitable and what’s not.

Another aspect to consider – and to let the artist or director know about if you’re talking to them about the issue – is the wall that the painting is going on. If it’s a yellow wall, for instance, you might not want a light wooden frame, as the colors might not show the painting or print to advantage. Or, if it’s a relatively small wall, you might not want to go for a thick frame, which could clutter your visual space. Take a photo of the space in question, and show it to the person you’re asking for advice, so that they have an idea of what to suggest.

Taking the Road of Fine Arts

A very broad word like Fine Arts would mean different things for different fields. For example, in arts it is defined as the creation of beautiful objects; artistic work that is meant to be appreciated for its own sake, rather than serve some useful function. In education, this would mean a college course in arts; a course of study designers to teach students practical artistic skills as well as the theory and history of art. Have you seen the difference of both definitions? Whatever the most appropriate denotation for this word is, it only proves that enough knowledge and learning is required to know more about of the things which are not that familiar to a person.

Have you finished a collegiate course in Fine Arts? Or if you’re an upcoming “freshman” are you planning to take it as your course? What are the opportunities that await you if you finished it? Do you know that a graduate of this course can practice his craft in different art and design related industries? A graduate can enter the field of acting, considering the fact that the study of this field involves its students into intensive acting workshops, trainings and seminars. Not only that, they can also pursue a career in musical theater because they have undergone voice lessons and workshops as part of their education curriculum. With enough financial capital, a graduate of this course can set up their own ceramic business and they act as the designer of ceramic products. If you think that ends up the possible industries where a Fine Arts graduate can enter, think twice: the long list is just starting. Computer animation is an addition to the field where they can practice what they have studied for and if they want to, they can spend their time in creative writing. A degree holder of this course can also be a commercial interior designer or whatever specialization in the interior design field he or she may take.

It is a notable scenario where design professionals have settled a career in the fields of interior design. With their complete knowledge and skills in aesthetics, it makes it easier for them to adapt to the said field. Those who have the passion for taking aesthetically beautiful pictures and images may involve themselves into the field of photography. Those who have dreamed to produce a film can enter the film production industry. These are only a few of the fields where a Fine Arts graduate can involve himself. All of this only means one thing: a bunch of opportunities awaits you in the field of Fine Arts.

Carolyn Miller has been engaged in the professional practice of interior design in Chicago, since 1994, after obtaining a bachelors degree in design from the Ecole d’Arts Appliques, Poitiers, France, 1984-1987. Her affiliations in Agence Vidal, which is an architectural firm, and in Air France, both located in Paris polished her knowledge in architectural design. She currently works on a renovation project for her company.
