State of the Arts

Regarding Nicole Finkbiner’s cover story about local artists reviving alternates to the mainstream gallery system:

Finally! Sounds like the way the art scene was around N.Y.C. in the ’60s and early ’70s. That’s what draws people in—catchy excitable stuff.

Galleries have an important role in the life of an artist. I like what Patchell had to say about Brave New Worlds business practice: “If we sell our artwork for under $20 and someone doesn’t pay with a credit card, they won’t take a commission.” That is called not paying taxes. Galleries take a cut of which they need to in order to stay open. At the end of the day an art gallery is not the devil and should never be viewed as such. It is a small business that is simply trying to survive. It makes it hard to look and buy artwork without a gallery.

Growing Pains

Regarding Michael Alan Goldberg’s article about opposition to a medical marijuana plant being set up in Upper Freehold Township, N.J.:

I’m an Upper Freehold Township resident. I am for medical marijuana and for the legalization of it. What I am against is having the facility in my backyard. This thing will resemble a prison. I might be OK with something that is nondescript, but what Breakwater is having to build is far from it. Since no soil is needed, the growing compartments will be placed on cement and there is no requirement for sun, why don’t they place their facility in an industrial/business park like The Mattrix? This would make more sense then on the corner of some country road, near a school, in a town with no police force. Everyone stop making this about marijuana being a scary drug and more about the actual facility.
