THAT is mindful of the exaggerated influence that the “art world” exerts on shaping what art is regarded as “good” or worthy of attention. There is art that expresses exciting, original ideas right here in our backyard. THAT aims to give these artists greater access to a public eager to explore studios far from venues traditionally intended for art investors.
