Art isn’t just what hangs in museums and galleries or what sells for millions in international auctions. As that art has become literally bigger in size and pricier, Internet-age counter-movements of small, affordable, personalized (and sometimes mass-produced) works have cropped up. The line between artist and appreciator has blurred in the process.
Etsy Dallas, an online co-op of 150-plus local artists, is one example of the do-it-yourself movement. The group recently hosted its first art barbecue.
Note: this post was modified on Aug. 14 to clarify that Etsy Dallas, while participating, is not the organizer of Show Pony Show.
