Metal smith's Exhibition in Print

Thank you Don

I have more respect for you now then ever.

truth is, after this elongated thread ,I was even more disgruntled by
quite a few things being said ;it seems there is always some one out
there willing to take the lead or the privilege and being in the

the amount of material I read coming from Mr. Cooperman just made me
question if I belong in an organization that is too elitist and goes
against all my belief system in the arts. I was ready to just quit

art world (they are so far ahead of us ) there are So many great ART
organization out there, who are a lot better balanced in a lot more
ways then SNAG has ever been. I am glad you wrote Don ,it just
reminded me of the clarity that is possible to why be part of SNAG ,
it doesn’t matter of all the opinions as long as we do have things
like THE ART OF GOLD then I am content, and inspired and excited
about getting more work done VS. depression ,disgruntlement.

Thank you Don
