Universal topics often arise at the same time. I recently read via the Fenimore Art Museum blog the same art segregation issues when museums hang shows. They highlight a well written article from the New York Times in their post on this very topic.
But from the art business side, is it a good thing to mix styles? When patrons see you as a folk artist and then you're painting 'paintings,' are you confusing your market?
