I’ve just moved here (three months ago) from Baltimore, and I am shocked at how poor your local art gallery coverage is. The City Paper there (much like your format) covers the huge vacuum left by the lack of gallery coverage by the Sun and

other papers.

Here in D.C., the Post and the Times ignore galleries, but so does Washington City Paper, whose only response to art coverage (as far as commercial art galleries is concerned) was that rather odd and slightly crazed and juvenile “Beneath Contempt” by your arts editor.

How about a bit more coverage? You can certainly devote a weekly page to the art galleries….After all, look at the huge amount you devote to film, books, theater, and other arts.

Fill the void!
