Artletter's New Year's Resolutions

1. Artletter will stop picking on small fry! In 1997, if your show doesn't
get reviewed, it could be that it was too unimportant to bother trashing.
Sniping at well-established art will continue as before.

2. 100% outside contributions- so start writing!

3. Laserprinted type; smaller type= more words= more reviews

(laserprinter and Macintosh computer donations gladly accepted)

4. Fax subscriptions. (If anyone has an old fax machine . . . )

Artletter is available the 1st and 15th of every month at Brazos Bookstore,
Lawndale, Glassell School, Inman Gallery, Menil Store, CAM Store, Brazil Cafe,
Diverseworks and the MFA bookstore. Mail subscriptions $15/year.
