In response to Mr. K, someone else outed him in his comments here http://www.csindy.com/IndyBlog/archives/20….
I don't know about him working at CC. That would be unfortunate. In previous comments, Tejon Tech has essentially called CC students to immoral, crystal gazing bums.
Oh, just an FYI for everyone. Tejon Tech is the owner of Tech Heads downtown. SO, I suggest, if you don't like his awful bullish behavior and his bigoted comments, you should definitely boycott his business and tell others to do so as well. Sorry Tejon Tech, but I'm tired of your hate.
To Carol Krick, please explain to us lesser folk what the difference is between "wannabe artist" and "real artist", as my husband and I may be fooling ourselves by thinking we’re artists merely because we make art. Are you positioning yourself as the end all be all judge of what true art is or what constitutes a true artist? Does it mean emulating New York art, going to a prestigious art institute or what? Or does it simply mean, someone who makes art, by whatever means, method or vision? I understand and sympathize with your gripe about pretension and name-dropping among artists here. I've encountered the same thing. However, this is a gripe that can be extended to any field and profession. As a practitioner of art (maybe not a "true artist" according to your arbitrary and subjective criteria), I take extreme offense to your tone and argument that amateur and wannabe artists clutter the art "scene". I don't know what the Green Mountain Falls art scene is like, but in Colorado Springs the art community continuously struggles to find support and funding to keep art going. So, I don’t see any value in creating more division by attacking fellow artists in our already fractured “scene”. I only see the need to collaborate and support one another in order to leverage funds, participation and recognition. A healthy art community does not consist ONLY of "real artists", or by your definition, artists that have national recognition or make a lot of money. Instead, a healthy and vibrant art community consists of a spectrum of art talent, appreciation and vision. The more the merrier, I say, as that will help foster an overall appreciation for art and will help the region become a beacon for art talent, thus bringing in or producing what you would consider "real artists". So, come one, come all, wannabe artists, no-talent artists, amateurs and diamonds in the rough. Let's all work together to keep the cynics at bay!
