blue light blue boys on aisle 7

it's a sad day when you get a circular in the mail advertising bargain bottom art warehouse sales, complete with coupons. 'buy quality replicas of the great masters,' it claims. it's no wonder some take issue with the art world, questioning its validity, and demeaning fine artists with remarks like, 'my kindergartner could do a better job.' why support the artist when you can just drive to your local wal-mart and pick up an 8x10 'starry night,' along with your bulk toilet paper and king sized m&m's.

how can any fine artist be taken seriously when the general public is force fed images of velvet elvis', thomas kincade's and nagel prints? is it really appropriate to market art in the same flyer advertising pizza hut's new dippin' strips pizza?
