Best Art Galleries Chicago

As a Chicago original art dealer, we are often asked: “Why collect original art? Why is art important?” Following are a series statements, collected from the world of art.

Art is a language that speaks to all people everywhere in the world. It cuts across social, educational and economic barriers. The study of art is a study of different cultures, values, traditions and beliefs. It therefore enhances cultural appreciation and awareness.

Art is one of the major means of self-expression that brings the inner world into the outer world of reality. It integrates mind, body and spirit.

Art develops a higher order of thinking skills, including analysis, synthesis, evaluation, and problem solving. The symbols in art are as important as letters and numbers.

Art can empower the viewer so that at times it can be transformative. Art makes us think more deeply, feel more intensely and experience joy more profoundly.

Art frees the mind of rigid certainty….seeking, finding and developing multiple solutions to the myriad problems facing our society. Artists tell stories that help us feel a sense of our world and our connection to the past, present and future.

Albert Einstein once said: “I’m enough of an artist to draw freely on my imagination, which I think is more important than knowledge; knowledge is limited! Imagination encircles the entire known world and, in fact, creates a world of it’s own.”

Paul Cezanne summed it up nicely: ” Art is the reproduction of what the senses perceive in nature, seen through the veil of the soul.”
