Have y'all ever worn any art? I guess all those clothes my Mama made me were wearable art.
First I must apologize to the other ladies that I did not post their names. I do believe there were three others but most of the work shown is by Paula.
I pulled out my 1964 Webster's New World Dictionary that Mother paid $10.00 for me to have. In case you think $10.00 is not so much, just think of a lady working for 40 cents an hour in a shirt factory and you can see it was a MAGNIFICENT gift to me.
Anyway, Art is described first as "creativeness, skill" then down to #5 "painting, drawing or sculpture" is used. Then number 6 list products of creative work;paintings, statues and number 7 list academic learning, as literature, music , and mathematics. Finally number eight list "any craft, etc., or its principles:as, the cobbler's art.
So that said, it is Art but I would refer to it as a Craft. I think they are beautiful but I would not wear Art.
I feel that the word Art just like other words today have taken on TOO BROAD a definition. Instantly, I can think of two words or phrase use too broadly and I bet you can too. Those that come to mind are HERO AND SUPER STAR. How about legend?
The kitty justice is it is true "Art is in the Eye of the Beholder" but some things to me when described as Art make my KAT FUZZY BRAIN HARD PRESS TO SEE IT AS SUCH.
