So I’m writing this story on this nonprofit group working with this gallery to raise funds, and I thought it’d be a good idea to talk to the featured artists who’ll have work up at the event.
I thought this artist had an idea of what event he was going to be working at, but he didn’t. And when I said my primary focus was the program and that I didn’t have anything else to ask him at the moment, he sounded all huffy when he said, “I thought you were going to ask how we became artists, why we did this for the living, why we love art.”
After telling him what the story was about, I didn’t want to waste his time or mine so i said that wasn’t the case, and I’m sorry if he misunderstood. Then he was like, okay, call if you have anything else, and then he hung up up before I could respond.
Ah well. You can’t make everyone happy.
