Hone your eye by acquainting your senses with the best art, so you can identify qualitatively similar examples when you are far from a museum setting.
Above is one corner of an entirely accessible local gallery, free to the public to enjoy Monday through Friday, Zelma Basha Salmeri Gallery of Western American and Native American Art.
It is located in Chandler, Arizona.
Beauty, rarity, superior execution are all relative. To gauge that which is special, you must be exposed to superior examples. Museums such as this assist in grooming your eye to recognize the best examples of Western art and of American Indian baskets, kachinas, some pottery, paintings and sculpture.
Investigate museums near you and when you travel, as part of your ongoing quest to achieve a higher level of connoisseurship.
