Styles & Periods
Conceptual Art

Conceptual Art is a style in which the expression of ideas or concepts is paramount, and the use of traditional artistic skills is often omitted all together. At times these works are integrated with sculptural or painterly materials, but the central thrust of the movement is that the ideas are the artwork, and are not dependent on the physical outcome or a presence in museums or galleries. This emphasis of idea over object is essential in Conceptual Art. It was developed in the late 1960s with the theoretically driven work of Minimalist Sol LeWitt, and came into bloom in the 1970s in the work of Germans Joseph Beuys and Hans Haacke, and Americans John Baldessari and Joseph Kosuth. Data, science, information, words and language became the new media for these artists. In 1970 the Museum of Modern Art presented a show titled “Information” co-curated by Joseph Kosuth. His work focused on the meanings of concepts that were familiar parts of everyday life, such as the chair and painting. He presented signs of these subjects, such as the dictionary definition, and a two- and three-dimensional representation of them. The work of Conceptual artists continues to span into the 21st century, and can include Performance art, Minimalism, Semiotics, Process and Earth-Art.

This Fabri-Tac Adhesive is an excellent Glue for Fabric
- John Wey in Toronto,Ontario
I wish someone had written a review for me. So I am paying it forward! I purchased every single eraser on the market and I did extensive testing!!! I have to say, I found a review too late on You Tube by Owings Art called Eraser review. I highly recommend you watch the video! Don't just take my word for it! I could have saved myself all the hassle, time and money! The Faber-Castell DUST FREE white eraser is hands down the VERY, VERY BEST eraser I have ever used! I love that it does not produce crumbles that need to be brushed away with a drafter's brush. Instead you get neat rolls. This is the best eraser for me because I draw in graphite, colored pencil and compressed charcoal. The latter two are almost impossible to erase completely with any eraser on the market. And the Faber-Castell DUST-Free eraser will not erase them completely, but it does the best job of any eraser out there. Period! I have done my own independent tests on erasers in my sketchbook! I have not found anything that erases graphite, colored pencil or compressed charcoal better. I prefer the DUST FREE on colored pencil because it is much faster than the kneaded eraser, and gives me similar results. In addition, the Faber-Castell DUST FREE erased Prismacolor's col-erase pencils completely! It does the best on Prismacolor's Premier colored pencils too. And it does the best on compressed charcoal. Note, no eraser will get completely eraser colored pencils or compressed charcoal period!!! But this eraser does completely erase the Prismacolor col-erase pencils. (FYI I removed the pink eraser that is on the bottom of the Prismacolor col-erase pencil because it SUCKS!) If you are looking for an eraser for all four mediums graphite, Prismacolor col-erase, Prismacolor Premier colored pencil and compressed charcoal the Faber-Castell DUST FREE eraser beats the pants off the completion!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I tested Staedler's electric eraser, FACTIS, Pink Pearl, Prismacolor Magic Rub, Prismacolor Art Gum, General's art gum, Prismacolor Kneeded, Alvin Velvet Softie, Staedtler Mars, Pentel Hi-Polymer Clic, papermate Tuff stuff! Note: I now exclusively use only three erasers. The Faber-Castell Dust-free white, Pentel click and Papermate Tuff stuff eraser. I use the later two for fine detailed erasing with my graphite drawings, but they can not erase colored pencil or compressed charcoal as well as my Faber-Castell dust-free!
