The Art Knight Episodes 6 and 7!

Here at the Cotton Candy Machine, we are excited about art and it is our mission to share that excitement with anybody and everybody. It happens all too often that art discussions are expected to be strictly serious and scholarly, placed up on a pedestal that, for many of us, is simply out of reach. It can be overwhelming and even alienating. While there is always a place for the serious and the scholarly, there is also a place for genuine enthusiasm and enjoyment. I’d like to think that the Art Knight web series is the place where all these attributes combine.There is no question of Sean’s excitement… his every word is infused with passion. But spend a few minutes with the show and you’ll also get some serious art-talk, whether it is through an art show’s written press release or an interview. Always mentioning the grander concepts of a show or an artist’s body of work, Sean recognizes the mental work behind crafting beautiful objects. His easy going demeanor prompts artists to speak openly and the effect is just perfect. The guests are presented as smart and thoughtful, while remaining accessible to even the most novice art fan. In the most recent episodes of the series, we get a few interviews, each of which provides a different angle of this massive universe we call Contemporary Art. Both episodes 6 and 7 feature two installments: the Art News and a an on-sight interview. So, let’s check it out!
