SAC Show

Greetings everyone-

I have some distressing news. Seven members were rejected from the

“all member exhibition” at SAC.  A difference of opinion? Semantics? What does it mean to be a curator? does it mean placement or editing work that one feels is not quite up to snuff.  However this was billed as an organization’s show- showing the breath and talent of all– not an individual or group show.And the work that was edited was up to snuff- perhaps the images were just a little fuzzy.

Whatever-

To me an all member exhibition is an all member exhibition. Placement or distribution of work for this exhibition is the curator’s job.

I have canceled the exhibition.
