THANKS FOR REGARDING ART AS WORTHY OF REVIEW

Dear editor:
You must be aware just how delighted I am with the wonderful review of my exhibition. As a matter of fact, there was a let-down after my opening — an enormous amount of work behind me, the big build-up, and then not a word anywhere in print reviewing same. Good, bad or indifferent, it would have been nice to get some coverage by the print media.
Thank God for the Source. You guys do what the print media is just not doing, in this field as well as others. Rarely, if ever, is a review of any cultural event, be it music, theater or the visual arts, written in the local press.
Being able to make a living as an artist here in the Virgin Islands is next to impossible, as the climate has never been friendly to same. In the years I have lived here, I have not seen any art galley survive more than an all-too-brief period. Those that do survive must rely on diversifying their product mix. Your coverage and review will help, and I am hopeful that we will see some change in the future. Thank you again for your time and exposure.
