Check out the work of artist James B. Craig. His work has been seen from coast to coast, in art galleries, museums, and college art centers.
A work of art in the visual arts is a physical two- or three- dimensional object that is professionally created or otherwise considered to fulfill an independent aesthetic function. A singular artwork object is often seen in the context of a larger art movement or artistic era, such as a genre, aesthetic convention, culture, or regional-national distinction. It can also be seen as an item within an artist’s “body of work” or oeuvre. The term is commonly used by a museum and cultural heritage curators, the interested public, the art patron-private art collector community, and art galleries.
Some art theorists and writers have made distinctions between the physical qualities of an art object and its status as artwork. For example, a painting by Rembrandt has a physical existence as an “oil painting on canvas” that is separate from its identity as a masterpiece “work of art.” Many works of art are initially denied “museum quality” or artistic merit, and later become accepted and valued in a museum and private collections.
