A bank ftlclty girls, who look more like artists models than art intrepre- neurs, arc responsible for a new kind of art gallery designed to give both arlisl;; nnd public .a much needed break.

In June, 194C, the gallery was're- organized on n' cooperative basis and moved to larger quarters. "Too many people. l)aye been taking advantage of the artist, too • long," says Algesa Hacker, n director of the gallery. "Unless he's '• \\cll known, the usual attitude Is that he should be only too glad to gel 5'25 for a piece or work into which he's put a Ijit* of time an«l effort. We want to establish fuirV prices." MUST HAVE 91ERIT The only requisite for exhibition is that work have merit as art. Each main "show" lasts about n month. Schedules are made up a year ahead of time, "We have a long list of artists , waiting to be' 'hung,' " says Mrs, Brady, "and, of course, a lot of would-be artists who can't s*?e why ,.

Prices at the gallery have ' a- brond range and are clearly marked on cnch object. Ceramic nsh irays. buttons, ect., may be had for SI., Paintings go.up to $750. The artist gets two-thirds ol the sales price. The remaining third goes to the nailery for upkeep and operating expenses. While sales are good, the gallery could not continue without- the help of its paying "members."
