AIRS and CONNcentric artists announced

50 Orange St, New Haven, (203) 772-2709
City-Wide Open Studios 2008

Artspace has announced the names of the artists chosen for the Artists-in-Residence Sites (AIRS) and the Main Exhibition aka CONNcentric. The AIRS artists can be found here. The list of CONNcentric artists is here. Interestingly, only 61 artists are listed as having been chosen for CONNcentric, a significantly lower number than what had previously been indicated by Artspace. There are 54 artists listed as accepted for the AIRS.

One of the strengths and joys of working within the art world is that it is elitist. Get over it.

Start your own alt space! Use Artspace for the publicity and the foot traffic of CWOS. Work within the system (or just on the fringes, ala the "Salon des Refuses" idea) instead of lobbing sour grapes from the sideline.

CWOS is such an important part of the New Haven art scene that I hope that, at worst, this is a transitional year and the kinks and "new bad ideas" can be ironed out in future years.
