Open studios to collectors? I would have cracked up as a kid.
I am shocked by how commercial it has all become and by how complicit the schools feel they need to be in order to compete. It totally messes up the work that should be going on in the schools. No one gets to be a student any more. Junior professionals. I have had students hand me business cards and catalogues of the work in the studio. A big mess, in my opinion.
