The Smee says ... make it so.
Art makes us what we are, and, when it is ignored, takes away a part of what we could be.
Most importantly, art is often, no matter the talent or effort or time to make the piece, far too expensive for most of us.
Artist have to eat and so do the buyers.
What is usually the answer is for the artist to eschew exposure to the masses until they have reached great acclaim.
That road to fame is almost always fatal to the earnings of the artist, and to the career of the artist as well.
Enter The Smee, an art exhibit intending to get the art into the hands of a wider audience before that artist has become so famous the average joe cannot afford their art.
Some artists may choose not to participate having looked deep into their soul and finding the process lacking.
Other artists will seize the day and enter The Smee.
Make it so.
