Chairman Fred Ross was one of three speakers for the 2011 NTDTV 3rd Chinese International Figure Painting Competition Award Ceremony at the Salmagundi Art Club, New York, NY last night. It is wonderful to see that there are many organizations in America and overseas dedicated to return art to its rightful path.
"This greatest of all art scams needed the wealthy and cynical to buy into their prospectus. Even the art departments at the colleges and universities started singing the same song which was now at the peak of fashion.

Most people don't realize that the majority of colleges didn't have art departments prior to 1950. When those art departments were formed it was at a time when Modernism was in full force educating students to this mindset in droves and still do to this day.

To this end they invented their own art history, and made up events that never actually happened, creating a history and mythology orchestrated by highly articulate verbal craftsmen whose skill with language to turn a word or develop disingenuous ideas, ordained their new paradigm with its own languageā€¦a language which many of us call 'art-speak' ."
