Golden Years


Art: Golden Years by Artist Peter D.
Modern abstract painting Where to find abstract art Abstract Art isn't just something you studied in 4th period class in Junior High as a required Art Class credit. It is in fact such an emotionally driven type of Art that you can really sit there and examine the same piece for hours and go through an entire range of emotion while evaluating it, studying it, exploring it. The fact that an artist can take an item, artifact, etc, and create an exaggerated form of itself or make it so insignificantly small and minute, just by using an array of colors, textures, and brush strokes is amazing. No wonder this form of artistry is still as popular today as it was 25 years ago. Its ability to remain modern and timeless at the same time is something that most notice instantly. So where should you begin to look to explore this amazing form of expression? Typically, the best place to start is your local museums. You can admire these works of art from a far, become familiar with the many different styles of Abstract Art and experience it, all while actively supporting local art galleries, art classes, and education. Were you first attracted to the Abstract Art world from seeing many brightly colored Cubism paintings? Or perhaps it was after viewing the various types of Abstract you began to understand and interpret it. Maybe you just really appreciated and admired the Expressionism Abstracts, and the ability to see the brush strokes within the creation? Whatever the way was that you were first introduced to this style, it is something that will inspire many aspects of your life. Some of the best places to find intense, creative, and colorful Abstract Art are most likely places you have not visited, well at least not regularly. Word of mouth is often a good place to start, checking out your local coffee shop or grocery store community boards are good as well. Both of these items are a good way to seek out and support local artist's, beginners, and some yet to be discovered. Swap meets, farmer's market's, and open air market's are other examples of places to find Abstract Art for relatively decent prices. More common these days, is the internet. This is such a powerful tool and it can return search results from places you would otherwise not be able to visit to view the pieces available. If you are no looking for a specific artist's work you have a couple of options that are relatively easy and do not require too much time sorting through to ensure it is a specific picture by a specific artist from a certain collection, etc. My first suggestion would be to do a search on an online auction site, such as EBay. It's been around since the early 1990's, it has billions of users, and it is a trusted and well respected site. It is easy to navigate through as well which is always a plus. It is literally as easy as typing in "Abstract Art" and hitting search. Hundreds of different items will populate, happy reading! Of course you can always use the other widely known website, Craig's List. Artist's often advertise their items for sale on this site, plus you can also check for listings of Estate Sales, and Auctions scheduled in your area. Always great places to find some one-of-a-kinds, collection pieces, and some super bargains too! Art Galleries, in most cases, have clubs within them. This is a good place to network within and discuss the happenings going on in the art world today. Your local library or bookstore has many different reference materials on the arts as well. As long as you have a general idea of what you like, have exposed yourself to the many different types of Abstract, and arm yourself with the right resources, you will be well on your way to finding the Abstract Art that you desire. Enjoy your Journey!
