That explains it

In an earlier post I mentioned that the Rivington Arms people didn't think they needed a website.

I once asked whether they were going to get one, and they said, "that's not really the audience we're aiming for." This comes from people who were chatting with trucker-hatted visitors who were explaining that one simply cannot live comfortably in NYC with an apartment worth less than $1 million.

Now I understand why, but I still think it's cheesy to act as if they're demeaning art by making it easier for people to find the gallery or learn more about their artists. The Friday NY Times, in its article about young art dealers, tells us that one of the partners is the daughter of Brice Marden.
