There is an exhibit at the Community Television Network building, “Commissioned By God,” featuring the works of noted Maine artist G. Bud Swenson. It opened May 6.

Where were you? An artist the caliber of Bud Swenson only comes our way every so often. What with the closing of so many galleries in recent years, it makes me wonder that you neglected to inform us art-starved Portlanders of this event.

Why does there appear to be a lack of support by your paper? Why have your staff critics not bothered to write about this event?

If we continue to relegate the art and artists of this town to a once-a-month stroll down Congress Street, then that is exactly what we will end up with, and nothing more.
