Are We Fine Art Craftsmen????

HI ALL,

HEY, ARE WE ARTISTS ?

CAN THE FLAT BOX KIT BUILDERS OF MUSEUM OR NEAR MUSEUM QUALITY SCALE MODEL BOATS BE CALLED FINE ART ARTISAN CRAFTSMEN? I'M TALKING ABOUT THOSE OF US WHO BUILD MODELS FROM COMPANIES LIKE CALDERCRAFT, DEANS MARINE AND EVEN SOME OF THE DUMAS ADVANCES LEVEL KITS.

I'M ASKING BECAUSE I AM CONSIDERING ENTERING A JURIED "FINE ARE AND CRAFT" STUDIO TOUR TO TAKE PLACE IN THE FALL, HERE IN NORTHERN ARIZONA "ART" COUNTRY.

ONE ARGUMENT IS THAT IF I/WE DO NOT START WITHA BLANK CHUNK OF WOOD OR METAL AND BUILD A MUSEUM OR NEAR MUSEUM MODEL FROM GENERIC MATERIALS, THEN I/WE ARE NOT FINE ART CRAFTSMEN.

I'D REALLY LIKE TO KNOW WHAT YOU ALL THING ABOUT THIS.

TAKE CARE,

AZCAPTAIN
