Artist quotes Moore about enchantment and art

Today, Sarah Zoutewelle quotes Thomas Moore's The Re-enchantment of Everyday Life in two posts about commercialism and the role of art, on her blog Art Calling. She includes Moore's observation, "Through a magical, spiritual use of images, the arts nourish the soul creating a richly varied atmosphere, an environment that is not only practical, but spiritually nutritious."

"Re-enchanted art"
"Tending the soulful life"

Zoutewelle attended the Fine Arts department at Syracuse University and writes on her web site, ArtWell (Artist in Healthcare), "I was shaped by a tradition where mastery of technique was an important prerequisite to producing quality work." Visit her site for an online gallery posted November 2008.
