What is original art?
What is original art is a great question that has many good answers. It can be debated to this day as to what is the correct answer. Original art is not to be confused with reproductions or giclees. Most art galleries refuse to sell replicas, and many sponsors of art fairs and festivals either do not permit them or require them to be kept in a reproduction container with no additional information about how the replicas were produced. It seems the biggest reason why is that according to most folks they would rather have the original and not a replica. Some art museums maintain reproductions take money away from what might be spent on original artwork.
