Like a lot of people these days, The Tears of Things has run smack into a brick wall. Or maybe more like run out of fuel. Well, no, not that either. We think they just feel that they've said what they had to say, so why repeat it, ad nauseum? After all, the writing on the brick wall has been clear for quite some time. "We like our culture cheap and skanky," it declares. Nyah Nyah Nyah.
Yes, The Tears of Things came out on the losing end, which they freely admitted before they left, being the truth-tellers that they always were and will be. They never denied that life and art are a great struggle for them. No, things haven't been easy for them, but there never was any other way. "At least we had the courage of our convictions," Catherine mumbled over her shoulder as she walked away.
Well, good for them. So while they're off working out their issues (oh, don't pretend that you don't have your issues, as well), they have decided to relinquish this website to their old friends, Art for Our Times. And we at Art for Our Times are standing behind everything they said, so we're going to leave all their heartfelt observations in the archives.
What began as a culture blog six long years and 900 postings ago is now a gallery website. It was a natural and inevitable evolution. Art for Our Times is now the proprietor of this electronic space. In a very short while, visitors will find a new format here. First we'll reintroduce the digital art, and after that the physical pieces that will be exhibited on the actual walls of a very real gallery that you may come to see. It's a risky proposition, but these are treacherous times, are they not?
Stay tuned and hope to see you soon.Posted by Jerome at February 11, 2009 05:55 PM | TrackBack
