another gallery closing

I just received news that 101up Gallery will host its last show the Saturday before the Superbowl, February 4.

101up: "We at the 101up Gallery are keeping this story in mind and hope you will too. The 101up Gallery will be closing its doors after The Tenth Show. The opening of this last show will mark our one year anniversary. We will end this chapter of the 101up saga with ten shows in thirteen months. We (Mark Sengbusch and Greg Frederick) have decided that we need to get back in the studio and work on our own art. This was a tough call involving the inevitable compromise between curator and artist. Like the DJ who decides he needs to produce his own records, or the
director who needs to act, the choice becomes clear."

The show will feature the private collection of 101up. (my name is on the list but I question the piece that they say they have of mine?)

I am a little concerned about this show...because like I said they seem to have a piece of mine that I think they got from the hallway trash back during art school days. Hum....??

the problem isn't whether or not it sells - ann doesn't own the "work" any more - she threw it away. a sale is irrelevant to this issue.

what is a problem: it's (potentially) a matter of mis-representation. if ann didn't intend for her trash to be considered art (and from what I can tell, she didn't), then the gallery shouldn't present it as "a piece of art work by ann gordon."

I contacted 101up but no word yet. I really can't believe **** would do this...the piece was thrown on the hallway floor - ripped from the stretcher bars....grrr...if it is that piece...man...it was really meant for the trash. You know those throw aways you would never even consider your art.
