The Fascination of the Pool

The Fascination of the Pool by Suzanne G.

I might be an communist idealist when it comes to how I wish the art world would work, but I’m not exaggerating when I say that it always nearly kills me to walk into galleries and see staff seemingly not care about the art they exhibit and/or lack any knowledge about the artists they represent. It hurts not to be able to work in a field I have vast knowledge of and that has eventually become the essence of my life.

I hate to say it, but it sounds like she's overqualified. Galleries and such may be looking for rank-and-file workers who won't upset things.

Thanks for noting that. I fixed the link.

After seeing that painting of that hefty chick sell for $35 mil I don't think that intelligence or aesthetics has much to do with it.

I don't think intelligence or aesthetics has much to do with anything these days!
