Tate Debate: When is a craft an art?

Art vs Craft - Ganoksin Jewelry Making Community. The Art vs Craft issue is a complex question and one that has bedeviled creators a great deal in the last fifty years or so.

Art vs Craft - Ganoksin Jewelry Making Community

I once heard a gallery owner say that the difference between an art object and a craft object is $3000. The American Craft Council’s director Carmine Branagan says that the discussion is unimportant, that the craft/art debate is one of craftspeople talking to themselves, about issues that do not matter at all to the general public – they do not care about this particular debate. She holds that if we are educating the culture as makers then the real issue is getting the work and what it means out and before the public, especially through galleries, museums and publications, the validators in society. I personally see art and craft as a very similar activity, that both involve creating, problem solving, composition and design decisions, pattern recognition, intuition, etc. Rising From the Ashes.

Recycling Beliefs Vary Between Generations, Says Study. AHarris Poll indicates that younger Americans not as "green" as other generations in America Recycles Day Survey Given that millennials have grown up in an era of increasing environmental awareness and environmental education in school as well as elsewhere, one would suppose that their recycling habits would be more ingrained and effortless than for older generations.

According to the poll, sponsored by ISRI, the Institute of Scrap Recycling Industries, however, the younger generation may be less "green" than previously believed by many. That poll, conducted through an online survey of over 2,000 U.S. adults, found that younger American adults in the 18-34 age range are significantly less likely to say they always recycle to the tune of 33 percent versus 48 percent of people aged 35 and older. Clearly, more needs to be done both to encourage recycling and better comprehend why younger generations aren’t seeing the energy, environmental, and economic benefits that recycling provides.” Millennials Emerge As Next Generation Of Business Owners And Franchisees.

The show, called "The New Eden," features 40 paintings and drawings by Scott Seekins, all on the theme of the Dakota War of 1862. The six-week conflict between the Dakota and European settlers resulted in hundreds of deaths, and the exile of thousands of Dakota men, women and children. It culminated in the mass execution of 38 Dakota men in Mankato, Minn. Doug Flanders — whose Minneapolis gallery is hosting the show beginning May 14 — used an image from the show to promote it on Facebook.
