I decided to check out Posner Gallery on my lunch break yesterday...and the word on the street is that the newly opened gallery in Birmingham's railroad district is in some trouble and could close if this art economy doesn't pick up! Whoever I speak to in the gallery business seems to be suffering now more than ever. Now is the time to buy art and support local galleries! I find that artists seem to be collecting more art from their peers than collectors who take notice and attend galleries. Just think....if each collector or person with some saved cash supported the arts in this city...maybe galleries like Posner could stay in business - at least till MOCAD hopefully draws attention to local arts and puts it on the same status as outsider art.
