What Is Art?

The question of what is art has often been asked and many people argue that art simply can't be defined, we have all no doubt heard the saying that art is "in the eye of the beholder" and I guess that the answer is in that small statement. What one person considers art another person may not even consider it worthy of placing on their fridge!

In fact many art historians and philosophers have argued for many years over whether a particular cultural form or so called piece of art should be defined as art. In other words if you enjoy it view it, if it is for sale and you like the look of it, buy it. Art is to be enjoyed whether that be through the eyes, touch or smell and only you can decide what appeals to you.

Our job here at the Directory Library arts and music sections is merely to highlight what is "defined" as art and provide you with the relevant information, resources and a multitude of links of interest whether that be as a collector, buyer, seller, entertainer or just an individual that enjoys all forms of art.

This art section also includes sites relating to music providing information about artists and bands as well as the sale of musical instruments, music tuition as well as how to purchase your favourite download or CD.
