Am conflicted on this one. Haven't been onstage since cell phones became commonplace. Not sure I'm entitled to a strong opinion either way for that reason.
No doubt the offending patron was in err, but yes, accidents do happen. The flippant attitude to the faux pas however....hmmmmm.
I'm curious - the materials stipend - is that something that can only be used at The Art Center? If so, what would be the attraction for an artist who works in a medium (metal, glass, etc.) that the AC does not carry supplies for? Are there any provisions for non-painter artists who need to procure supplies from other sources?
Many of us are just scraping by these days and simply cannot squeeze blood from a stone (or turnip or whatever.)
Friends and I tried to go there today for lunch - met there at noon and they had not opened yet. Went to Abyssinia instead.
There used to be a Jewish deli in Memphis in years past. It was in one of the spaces behind where the Sekesui (sp?) on Poplar is now. Don't know why it went out of business and won't even suggest a guess. I only went there once, but it was good.
Can't wait to try Gereny. Thanks for letting us know about it.
