Where’s the (visual) Art?

We’re up in Rhode Island communing with the water and rocks. This morning at breakfast we looked through the area papers to find out what might be going on in the local art scene and discovered an annoying nationwide trend. Just like the papers back home in New Jersey, the arts sections here define the arts as primarily Movies, TV and a bit of music and an even smaller bit of theater. Where are the paintings, drawings and photography? It’s as I they don’t exist. Oh, there was a short review about an Audubon print exhibit. What about us living artists? And one of the papers we were looking at was the Boston Globe.

Not sure if this is a statement about how visual arts are valued in this country or one of the reasons why the newspaper industry is dying.
