Oh please oh please let me buy some art from 'someone's closet' that never got sold, in an attempt to 'clean out'. That's not how art should be sold, or marketed. Maybe another reason why Eye Level Art is closing. Small town think, small time think.
Meaningless art, meaningless show, meaningless gallery.
The previous few posters might all be right. But they are also forgetting that the owner of ELA was incredibly bad at running a business, knew absolutely nothing about art, treated artists like crap, (treated most people unfairly - was very abrasive), and because of it.... had a terrible, terrible reputation. This is a small town, really. People talk. Nobody wants to go to and support a business like that. Can I get a witness?
That's BESIDES the fact that the art was shitty, it was hung in an amateur way, ELA was dirty, etc etc.
Art is supposed to be special. It is supposed to be revered, and tell our story. ELA always felt so desperate ...that Mike was throwing up art on the wall like a big vomit, just to make a buck. Well, that doesn't work. Obviously.
