An Exhibition of Things Called Art



   Art exist within a diverse range of human activities that expresses and produces a visual, auditory, or performed artifacts— artworks.  These works depict the artists imaginative and technical skill, and are intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power.  Art has been traditionally defined as the expression or application of human creative skills and imagination, typically in a visual form, producing works that express the artists inner emotions, desires, and message.  A completed work of contemporary art can be used to describe any work regarded as art in the widest sense in respect to the physical form of visual art. When it comes to arts identification, there are no distinct set of values or aesthetic traits. Art is not perfection; art realistically is something that continues to progressively develop as it is seen, meaning to eagerly open all human capacities, thoughts and emotions. Art represents a unique creation that lets the observer interpret the art and the artists to portray it in whatever way they want whether the work is viewed with same perspective as the observer or not. A creation that allows for interpretation of any kind is art and can take on many various forms, but no matter the form it is a form of communication of the artist’s ideas or emotions.
