I visited the Mark Building where there was a trade show of sorts for Elders-in-Action and the new "Geezer Gallery". I disapprove of the name "Geezer Gallery". Do you describe yourself as a tall artist, a Hispanic artist, a female artist, a young artist? Shouldn't we let the work speak for itself? I find the name "Geezer Gallery" ageist and disrespectful. Am I sensitive because I qualify as a "Geezer"? (I am nearly 60 and proud of it). Visual Artists generally improve with time.
(Edited 5/24/10 to clarify: Geezer Gallery is a non-profit, with tax exempt status, seeking public funds).
(Edited 8/16/13: The poll has been closed. Results indicated most respondents were not in favor of the name Geezer Gallery).
