Elizabeth MacDuffie is co-founder and editor of Meat for Tea : The Valley Review, the local arts & literary magazine. The magazine has been in existence for four years and now has downtown offices in New York Shop Exchange and 32 Masonic street. For the Art Walk in March I hosted an event in which some of my authors read and a local artist exhibited her work. Thus, the Meat for Tea offices also became a small gallery.
Describe your organization or gallery
The Meat for Tea gallery aims to represent outsider art, an underrepresented genre in the Valley. Our space is well located and, if our first event is any indication, we will be a lively addition to Art Walk. Currently we are showing the work of Gina Gaetz. We want to give artists the opportunity to show and sell their work, but at a much lower commission structure than many other galleries. Thus, we only take a 30% commission on sold work.
Thank you for your generous spirited welcome! how wonderful it is to receive those kind vibrations from another artist that I admire, enjoy, respect. If I write a comment like this does it go to you or to the wide public? Is there the possibility to write on an open forum wall as well as one to one?
which is this note, where it says "leave a comment for Elizabeth... yadayada"? just to you? warmest regards, and Namaste, Karen
