But I have great respect for many of the Washington artists who own and run the Jefferson Place Gallery on a cooperative basis and who, presumably, have chosen this artist…. If the artists who own and underwrite the Jefferson Place Gallery believe in and stand behind this artists, the press release might well say so and perhaps give their reason. If she was not chosen by the artists, then the new arrangements for selection should be made public so that this equivocal condition will no longer exist.
