Main Street Reviewed

Here's a Ithaca Times review, by Karen Gadiel, of the current group show at the Main Street Gallery. For comparison, you can also read some of my own thoughts about the same exhibit (the following post links to pictures of the opening). For what it's worth, the review is descriptive and interpretive, not critical. I see that Buzz Spector is a "minimalist" now; how did that happen? Gadiel also talked to the owners, Adrienne Bea and Roger Smith. She quotes them on their mission as gallery owners. Mr. Smith tells us:
"We're not interested in people banging out stuff. We look at everything but we're not market-driven. We sell paintings but we don't put in a certain type of painting just because it's popular."
That's good to know.
