Do you appreciate art?

Friday, October 29, 2010

There are those who will go to the art museum and stand and look for hours at paintings and sculptures. They are hoping for a glimpse inside the hearts and minds of the creators. As a banjo player I guess I don't have the IQ to understand the value of something that can't be heard, touched, tasted or smelled, only seen!

Well here is my take on art:

Have you ever opened the case to a banjo and had your senses go reeling? Struck at first by the beauty of the inlay and finish, then the smell of the instrument drifts up to reveal a soft, sweet mahogany. As you strum a finger across the strings you can tell how well the instrument is set up as well as the craftmanship of the creator. Finally, you start drooling at the thought that just maybe you could afford to buy this and keep it for yourself.

To me, real art produces reactions from all the senses, not just the eyes.

But what do I know, I'm just a banjo player with a supposedly low IQ

I did play banjo for a band called Buncombe Turnpike. I was formerly the guitar player, just had to make the switch. I was raised on Bluegrass and Country music back in the sixties. Being the youngest of three kids, I played whatever instrument was not being used at the time.
