When I look through the various art magazines that are published in the United States and the around the world,  invariably I will come across a section entitled “Emerging Artists”.  This really bothers me at times, especially when I see that the article is about someone who is over 50 (or so).  It’s as if they just started to create art.  What about the other decades of creative work?  I guess they were “submerged” during these times. I’ll feel better about these articles on “emerging artists” when I begin to see articles about “submerging artists”.  I’m talking about creative souls who have done wonderful work over a long period of time in relative obscurity.
