WC registry update - Artists are getting notices of acceptance into or rejection from the WC artists registry... and WC is notifying all of those current registry artists who have since found representation that their pages will be de-activated.
Dear Curated Artist Registry Member,
We would like to thank you for your participation in the White Columns Curated Artist Registry. As you may know, the registry provides exposure for artists who are unaffiliated with a New York City commercial gallery. We are pleased that you have attained representation since your initial inclusion in the registry; however, our policy mandates that we deactivate the web pages of artists who are now associated with a NYC commercial space. I am sure you understand. If for any reason we are mistaken about your status, please us know, and accept our sincere apologies in advance...
There are/were a lot. Maybe they are even going to start curating from the registry again? Hope so. That registry has been a waste for four years. Has anybody included in the WC registry since 2004 had anything at all come from it? I don't get why WC doesn't select registry artists to take to all of those fairs that they go to. That was a great opportunity to help support some good non-represented artists.
