Why do you think it is difficult to keep art galleries open in Lawrence?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on November 17, 2006
“It’s really difficult to sell art in general. I like the idea of there being a place for artists to display their work, but there are a lot of artists here and not a lot of people in a position to buy art.”
“I really have no idea. It seems like there’s a lot of interest here. They have the Red Balloon To Do and everything. Art’s a tough sell.”
“Unfortunately, not enough people value original art by living artists. They just prefer to buy famous prints. They should take a chance on real art.”
“Too many artists, and not enough buyers.”
