Art Show in NY by Pikliz.com & 1804live.com

Narration by Frankie Morone.

Painting is easy when you don't know how, but very difficult when you do (Edgar Degas). In other words: la critique est aisée, l' art est difficile.

So many things can be said about art but I will refrain from saying much.

Since the beginning of time, men has always been fascinated by art. Sculptures, cave paintings, rock paintings dating for more than 40000 years have been found.

How do we define ART: to me, it is the process of deliberately arranging certain elements(medium) in a way that appeals to the senses or emotions of people. That is why some people prefer an artist to another and would be willing to pay a certain price for a painting whereas someone else would not buy that particular painting.

Art provide a means to express one's imagination in a way that is not tied to the formality of language.That is why each artist is different from another one. Each one creates his or her art his or her own way depending how he or she views the world; therefore, art can convey a specific emotion or mood so to speak.

Art is often intended to appeal and connect with human emotions. Depending on the degree and the level of skills of the artist, that can affect his or her ability to trigger that emotional response from someone.

"Artists are independent and sometimes humorous people who make the most complicated things simple. they can see, hear and feel where others are blind, deaf and insensitive."

On Saturday July 11, 2009, Pikliz and 1804live.com had a grand premiere art show. 37 paintings from several artists were on display. We had a great turn out. More than 50 people (collectors, critics and other artists) attended this event at the beautiful back yard of the Coriolan's. Wines, cheeses, assorted hors d' œuvres and beautiful background music made it an unforgettable mid summer evening. The pictures are living proof. We invite to tour the album and see for yourself. For those who did not make it, you surely missed a wonderful evening.

Pikliz and 1804live.com would like to hear from you. Please do not hesitate to make a comment, and enjoy the visit.
