Galleries or Casino?…Take Your Pick…

 

BerrybeadsBeing an artist is filled with ups and downs, highs and lows. I stumbled upon the is article and had to share it. The now defunct most prestigious, important and successful galleries in history. Only the one percent showed at these places and now they are barely a part of history. Just shows you how the world moves on.

And of course I’ve written about the art fairs before:

That are literally flea markets for the rich to meander and purchase the next big thing. In my opinion this concept isn’t helping galleries stay in business.

Perhaps we are better off with a casino and the world’s largest ferris wheel in Liberty State Park.
