"My Artwork would not exist without a thriving global pottery community.
In the isolation of a studio, an artist can begin to feel like an island, but in truth
we are all part of archipelagoes; chains of islands loosely connected by a stream
of information that enhances our Artwork.”

It is such a nice and socially pleasant experience to stand around admiring works of art and discussing things with a glass of wine in your hand.
Seems to me that in the US people are paralysed from doing anything in case they get sued.
Is it really so bad?

Something to be think about. Not everyone drinks responsibly.

I do know several Arts organizations that have a bar at their art openings. These are not craft sales, but art galleries. Some charge a modest fee for a glass of wine or a beer and this is their source of income for the show. You are correct, Frederik, it is nice to have a glass of wine with your contemporaries, and people even buy work. Most people are pretty careful about drinking too much these days because of stiff fines from police. I was just at an open house at our local art supply store last week. The wine was free, and also the beer. They had lots of food and everyone had a great time. It was a way for them to thank their customers. So, it still happens, but not so much as in the old days.
We used to have openings sponsored by a local [national] tobacco company. They served prawns, and offered free cigarettes.This was the opening everyone attended! But that was thirty years ago.They are not allowed to sponsor art or sports any longer. You didn't have to smoke the cigarettes.
