Sign it or don't sign it or use a fake name, if you'd prefer. Note if you do not want your letter published — although I'd prefer to get your opinion without a signature than not get it.

Anna sent me this link: http://blogs.dallasobserver.com/mixmaster/2013/04/do_we_need_art_criticism_in_da.php
I doubt any of the participants in the panel discussion think of me as a viable art critic. I'm just here, writing, as I've been writing since the Dallas NOTES and HOOKA days [and well before]. After eight months of telling me what I couldn't do for DallasArtsRevue, The Dallas Observer, pointedly did not hire me as their reviewer.
Dee Mitchell is the best art critic Dallas has had for the last twenty years or more. Charissa Teranova is a superb writer about art; she's funny; she's biting, and I haven't seen anything by either of those writers in a long long time.
I keep at it without official approval.

You have always done an excellent job keeping us informed. I have gained a great deal of credibility here in Tyler, Texas by being a member of your site. expect to keep my membership for many years.
Before I posted the note on the cover that DallasArtsRevue had abandoned doing the calendar, I emailed all the members to let them know what I was doing. Joan's letter was a reply to that notice. Click the link of her name to see her amazing ceramics. — J R Compton

I don't have problems resizing photos because I use Photoshop. However, in an art group I'm involved with, many members do have problems resizing photos. Do you know of any good online or free apps for resizing that I can recommend to people?
I just put the words, "How do I resize photos without Photoshop?" in Google, and it spit out a number of responses, including [and I posted the best of the list to the How to Photograph Art page's How to Enter Art Competitions' section, just under the big text saying, "The easiest way to reduce the file size of an image is to reduce the image's height & width."]
I sent Paul the full list, but I want readers of DallasArtsRevue to read DallasArtsRevue, so for them I put it there.

I guess if you knew the Dallas in the name of my publication is for Dallas art and Dallas artists, you wouldn't bother us with your NYC show, unless you are a Dallas artist in the big city.

Of course I knew it was for DALLAS. I want any advertising I can get meat head. You are rude. What a way to answer an artist who wants people to see her work. There just might be a person in DALLAS who is coming to NYC for a visit!
Go to hell. Oh, that's right. You're already there.

I can't remember if I previously read your review or whether I responded, but I do remember you. You seem to me like a nice man. Perhaps one day we could meet again in a quieter environment to discuss art, life and even less stressful things.
It's been quite a while since that show at the Bathhouse but a friend was grousing about your critique of my work, so I thought it would be worth a diversionary trip from work to read it, perhaps even a second time — my, what has happened to my memory?
I'm not surprised that you did not "connect" emotionally with my images or understand my conversation that evening but I am surprised at how well you wrote of them. Indeed, read your words again and consider that you may have expressed my inner struggle and desires better than I could have. Thank you.
