What about interpretive dance?

My wife says she wants to see this. "AHA interpretive society dances about beer"

Does photography count?

Nope

I was just kidding, Carl. Photography is art because its all about seeing, and seeing is what is most important about art.

That said, I don't really consider brewing an art. I know a lot of people do, but to me it is a craft, not art.

Art and craft are synonyms.

She just sold her first piece of Art. She's a professional artist now!

https://www.etsy.com/shop/HeatherVittumArt



Sold!  Very cool.  A young buff orphington perhaps?
Seems like the paper could be art all on its own. Does she make that as well?

Wandering the garden last night, I came across all manner of potential subjects. The veins on the cabbages were nice.  :)

Art and craft are synonyms.

Semantically, perhaps. And there are similarities but also differences. A craft is a learned skill that is honed over time and it produces useful objects where as art is a creation that is basically useless except for aesthetic pleasures: Poetry, photography, music, and so called fine arts.

There is certainly some cross over and a great artist much have exceptional craftsmanship but a craftsman is not necessarily an artist.

Photography is a useless creation? (excepting aesthetic pleasures, of course)   :o

That's why I like you Major,  you come up with some good ones!

If you take a picture of an engine manifold to use as a diagram that's not art but if you take a picture of flowing lava for the sole purpose of making someone go "oooohh!" Then that is art. ;)

By that definition, pornography is art.  (See what I mean about coming up with good ones?)   ;)

FWIW lava porn sells well.   ;D

Art is in the eye of the beholder. For some guys car porn = art. I work with some guys who drool over dyno readouts more than real porn.

And speaking of underwater Hawaii photography, I'm a huge fan of Clark Little. Traveling to Hawaii has always been on my bucket list, but every time I see one of his shorebreak shots I get the itch to head out there.

Exactly! ;)

And just because someone drools over dyno read outs doesn't mean that it's art. They are appreciating the function more than the aesthetics.

sure, an artistic creation can be functional. take any really amazingly designed sports car, that hand hammered aluminum body jag. It is a blend of craft, technology, and art. However you could pretty much remove the art and still have the craft and technology and, therefore, functionality.
