There are different kinds of art exhibitions, in particular there is a distinction between commercial and non-commercial exhibitions. A commercial exhibition or trade fair is often referred to as an art fair that shows the work of artists or art dealers where participants generally have to pay a fee. A vanity gallery is an exhibition space of works in a gallery that charges the artist for use of the space. Temporary museum exhibitions typically display items from the museum’s own collection on a particular period, theme or topic, supplemented by loans from other collections, mostly those of other museums. They normally include no items for sale; they are distinguished from the museum’s permanent displays, and most large museums set aside a space for temporary exhibitions.
Exhibitions in commercial galleries are often entirely made up of items that are for sale, but may be supplemented by other items that are not. Typically, the visitor has to pay (extra on top of the basic museum entrance cost) to enter a museum exhibition, but not a commercial one in a gallery. Retrospectives look back over the work of a single artist; other common types are individual expositions or “solo shows”, group expositions (collective exhibitions or “group shows”), or expositions on a specific theme or topic (“survey shows“). The Biennale is a large exhibition held every two years, often intending to gather together the best of international art; there are now many of these. A travelling exhibition is another category of art exhibition. Exhibitions of new or recent art can be juried, invitational, or open.
One of the largest growing classes created solely for adults is actually as fun as it seems. It’s all about attending the right one for you; it’s also important that there’s a focus surrounding the art you’re creating, otherwise you’re just paying to drink in a different atmosphere!
1. Painting Parties Are All They’re Cracked Up to Be. All the photos and hype surrounding painting parties are there for a reason: they’re as informative as they are entertaining!
2. Painting Parties Are the New Yoga. Sometimes we need a relaxing hobby that doesn’t involve physical exertion after a day at work. Why not have a few glasses of wine while learning a new skill?
3. Learning Art in a Relaxed Atmosphere Teaches You More Than You Might Think. There are two types of learners in the world: those who learn better under pressure and those who learn better while kicking back. Painting parties are all about having fun doing something with the people you love (or don’t love yet!)
4.Take Classes With People You Know or People You Don’t. Need a break from everyone you know? We understand. Need an outlet to explore with your friends? This too is perfect for you! Whatever suits your fancy, a painting party is just that.
5. You Don’t Need to Be an Artist. A painting party is still an art class and that means even if you know nothing about art, you’ll walk away with a meaningful painting as well as new experience! Even veterans of the craft can vouch for adult painting classes and just how educationally different they are.
6. You can bring you own Beverage and Food. Art Fun Studio also lets you bring whatever else you’d like, be it beer or wine and food. It’s your domain and your time.
