What's “WhatsArt”?  “WhatsArt” came from combining a favorite expression used when you cannot quite recall or explain someone or something and art.  This seems to be the condition many people, even those interested in visual art, find themselves in today.  So…

 

“WhatsArt” hopes to name, explain, and reveal the “Whats” of visual art by sharing serious-minded news, analysis, and reviews of current visual art happenings.


I welcome others to join the forum by emailing their writings to carol@taylor-kearneyarts.com.  

 

As the curator of this blog, I will select timely articles to share.
