The impact of the recession on local art galleries is there will be less of them plying their trade in the near future. What people will see more and more in the galleries that do manage to survive is more conservative, safe and cautious fare. Nowadays, it’s going be more bowls of fruit and flowers rather than art intended to provoke, a return to traditional notion of beauty and quality. Which is why a depression is not so depressing in the art world. Though there won’t literally be much in this exhibit in the order of fruit and flowers, still lives or figurative art, there will be a return to quality and value in art and design.
