ART, CRAP...

And the ability to know the difference. Artist Wade Hoffer, whose work is currently on display at the Lisa Kurts Gallery, paints dreamy landscapes that would make a nice background for the Serenity Prayer.

I seek a sublime level of concentration and reduction, attempting a clear alternative to the velocity of modern life. I wish for my work to stay with someone as a memory of something that is faint, oblique and intangible. You know, like that time when Uncle Bill touched you down there. Right before he had to go away? Remember?
