I recently spent another day wandering the galleries of Chelsea and came across one gallery whose behavior was remarkable. Actually, I can't blame the gallery, just the person who hired the person sitting behind the desk at the gallery. I popped into this gallery to see a show by an artist whom I have collected pretty heavily. When we approached the desk to inquire about prices and whatnot we told the young lady seated there that we were big fans and collectors of the artist's work. She replied with silence. So we picked up a catalog sitting on the desk and pointed out to her works in the catalog we own. She nodded and said, "Yeah, he's a great artist." That was the end of the conversation. She went back to doing whatever she was doing before we interrupted her.
