ENTRY

My friend invited to the private viewing of The Other Art Fair® in Santa Monica last night. I went to one of these a few years ago and remembered loving how they curated spaces for a bunch of different artists who work in numerous mediums, all inside of an airplane hanger. I mean, how often do you get to enjoy art, music and drinks on the gravel of a fully functioning airport? 

The show this year didn't disappoint. Although I am in no way an art critic, and to be fully transparent, I don't even know what makes "good art" good. But, I do think that I have good taste for aesthetics and a visual appreciation for the language that most creatives try to convey their emotions or expressions in. With this being said, I can't say I loved or liked a lot of the work but there was definitely some stand-outs. I can't lie, I was more interested in people watching and looking at the cool outfits that seen walking through the isles. There's a couple of people that I really wish I would have photographed.

Now, the thing that I appreciate the most about this experience is that physical art is still alive and fully present. Of course there were a specs of NFT's throughout the show but for the most part, I love that these artist are still out there getting their hands dirty. I have a tremendous amount of respect for all creatives who pursue their passion(s).

After the show we went back to my friends place and I'm glad we did. This old cowboy can't walk around in his boots like he used to. Thanks, Darlin' for a fun night.
