“In art history, regionalism has been understood as a relatively deliberate effort, by regional
producers, to develop the characteristics of distinctively local artistic interests…….
However, many artistic regions were probably denoted as such only with hindsight
by a society or its historians.”
Whitney Davis (Oxford University Press)
Any issues of geographical identity are of more concern to those that sell, criticize and categorize
art than to the artist themselves. Artists do not declare themselves as “New York artists” or
“Texas artists” as those phrases are limiting, but the media and critics will happily use them,
So Avis Frank is proud to present ten artists from LAHOUNY. Please support good local
art wherever it comes from.
