The Boston Globe’s Geoff Edgers wrote a story about art selling at a nice discount. It provoked this response from artist Joanne Mattera:
Of course I want my dealers to stay in business. But I don’t want them turning into Marshalls or Loehmann’s. Art is not like produce. It doesn’t go bad. I’d rather not show this year than cut my relatively modest prices in half.
