A Selection From the Stack

"Thank you for taking the time to share your work with us. The gallery is committed to exhibiting work that reflects a certain style. Though not easily verbalized, our mission is to represent artists whose work coincides with that direction. Our intent when choosing new artists is not to critique or judge, but to identify a style that coincides with our own.

Your work was very interesting and well presented. At this time, other work we have reviewed is a better fit for us. We wish we could represent many more artists but the reality of it is that we can only represent a few.

Thanks for your interest in the gallery.

Best regards,

Gallery X"

I love this letter. The writer really did put forth some serious effort. Sometimes I get only one sentence that says very little indeed, in this case I got several sentences that while trying to be delicate and encouraging also said very little. It still makes me smile. Perhaps I'll try them again in several months.
