It depends on what aspects you're looking at. There are some rules that are important [for example: noise/grain in a photo... I'm going to say a good 98.3% of the time it shouldn't be there] but there are always exceptions.
Or when there's blur in a photo, a good majority of the time something should be focused, but there are times where it's the lack of focus that makes the image
So yes; it's subjective to an extent, but at doesn't mean you can just run around doing little to no work without much effort into it and claim "IT'S SUBJECTIVE!"
Quality is not subjective. While Art is. Quality is how likely something is to last over time. If you take traditional are and have a pencil drawing on a piece of loose copy paper. It has low quality even if the work is amazing. IF in my case I there is a beautiful chainmaille sculpture but made out of very weak and poorly formed rings, it is low quality.
In summary Art is subjective. Beauty is subjective. Quality is not.
Fine art is subjective, commercial arts (like illustration, filmmaking, animation, etc.) are usually not.
In my opinion, though I greatly prefer commercial arts to fine arts in general, what really makes something good is the effort put in. When something is laughably bad or cheesy, but it still has a charm to it, it's usually because someone poured their soul into it, and thus it's still enjoyable. When a little kid or untrained person spends hours and hours on a picture, it might be completely wrong from an art perspective, but it's usually still pretty cool to look at.
While style preferences are subjective, according to my professors quality also means turning in your work unwrinkled, un-smudged and in a proper, clean display is part of the quality and NOT subjective.
Art is all about perception. It's the job of the viewer to interpret it any way they want. If they don't like the "quality" they don't have to look at it. Art is ART. Art is our child. You can't change the way it looks, you can only appreciate it for what it is and love it anyways. Embrace it!
It depends. Art is only what you make it, and it's the job of others to interpret it the way they want to. If they don't like a certain quality about it they don't have to look at it. Either way, for me, art is beautiful with both detail and without. Art it ART and everything is art. Even the dust on a dusty ledge and the sunlight reflecting off the surface is art. Embrace it.
