It has been said over and over; there are a lot of artists here.
Many are closeted but more than a few are out there, here.
A muse or two wafts through here too, on occasion. It seems like a natural, we're here, we're mostly unrepresented and we are communicating with each other.
I think we have the seed to pull together a vehicle with movement, who's with me?
We need a passionate spokesperson to represent us and sell the work, hmmmm, any ideas?

Although my art is created for the art's sake I do agree with Kirk. Someone should take care of other fellow-creators, hallucinators and artisans' interests and such. Thus, he answer is: absinthist is for! The next question then: who's with us?

While I agree with Kirk and have been quite impressed with the percent of creative people in this group, the kinds of art are quite varied; musicians, poets, painters, writers, photographers, metalsmiths . . . Hard to pull together and into what? Maybe those creating specifically absinthe related art could have a gallery page here.

I take it we are back with the lament - "Where are the Peggy Guggenheims of the world?"

A lot of art. Not a lot of patrons. It is a dillema.

Do we need buyers or just promoters? Chicken and Egg. Perhaps if we can't rustle up a good, old fashioned patron, we can at least find another Steiglitz to provide gallery space, and a crowd.

Where should the "nouveau arte verte" be centered? France seems logical, but that so many of the artists are on this side of the Atlantic.

I once new a man he had a story to tell, they called him Kirk, I never knew him well
He worked his magic on shiny things, pendents, grilles and diamond rings
They glowed like the sun and never got old
He's a man of silver with a heart of gold

My vote is for Kirk

I really got a thrill out of that disc, thanks Justa!
I'm no agent, I couldn't even sell a 100 dollar bill at half price. I was thinking maybe we could get someone with talent in that area, (promotion) maybe Oxy would put them on his refrigerator for us.
I'd hate to see it being all absinthe related either, we are artists, we like absinthe, end of story. The art goes deeper than that, I don't want anyone to be labeled an absinthe artist, especially me. Absinthe has very little to do with it, it was just the absinthe vortex that brought us together.
What we need is someone who is as passionate about collecting and trading in art as Oxy is about collecting and trading in absinthe. Maybe he needs a new hobby? The movement could start here but end in the general arena.

As a song writer, not sure if I fit in. But a web presence would not be that hard to generate. The problem with artists is ego, I now it's my problem!

A virtual gallery with some sort of related theme may be beneficial. Kirk, are you looking to generate commerce or are you looking for a collective muse?

I don't know about anyone else, but I don't make good money on my art, I spend it.
I would love to be able to sell my impressions cuz I have them stacked everywhere.

I'm not an artist, but couldn't you do what they did in the old days, Put On A Show! As in, a salon or something of the like. Of course geography would be an issue I suppose.

An online gallery would work for some things. Maybe it could be categorized by artist or medium or both. As a poet, I realize this works best for the visual arts however, my wife is a fine painter.

Poets and musicians should be in the forefront!
The way I see it, online is the new community, as far as a salon goes, I think this is it.
The salons weren't commercial galleries though, and this place shouldn't be either.
I suppose it's possible for us to pool our talents and make a web gallery, but I don't see a joint effort really working. What we need is a true dealer, an expert at display and networking.

Well sir you have a good eye. I think you are the only one to recognize the avatar. He was an early musical hero of mine. Although if you listen to my style you would never know it.
