Everyone in the art blogosphere is atwitter over The New Criterion article "Why the Art World is A Disaster" by Roger Kimball.

"...almost none has anything to do with art as traditionally understood: mastery of a craft in order to make objects that gratify and ennoble those who see them."

I know. Me too.

I am not just trying to be politically correct when I say I am on the fence here. I see value in some of these artists' work and what they contribute to the dialogue.

I apologize for not citing properly, but a few days ago, I copied a phrase into my sketchbook that appeared in the comments of another blog as a definition of an ideal work of art:

"Brilliant idiosyncrasy of craft, paired with depth and transcendence of concept"
