THE MICHIGAN DAILY
AT JULY MEETING:
Regents Approve Leaves
For Faculty Members
Amateur painters should be pa-
tient in developing their work and
self-judgment, Alfred P. Maurice,
director of the Kalamazoo Insti-
tute of Arts, said here yesterday.
"Serious amateur painters should
be humble and wait until they
have a statement of value to make
before showing their work," he
urged at the eighth annual Re-
gional Art Exhibition and Art
Conference in Rackham Lecture
Exhibition of works by some 140
Michigan artists will continue
through Aug. 3.
"There may be some excuse for
a professional artist to place less
than his best work before the pub-
lic for he must earn his livelihood
by creating what his client de-
sires," Maurice said. "But there is
never an excuse for an amateur
artist to do so because he need
only please himself."
Maurice said museums and art
centers should resist pressures to
devote an undue amount of time
and space to displaying the work
of amateur painters. "Yielding to
such pressures perverts the func-
tion of these institutions and is a
disservice to the artist himself
because it limits the amount of
truly outstanding work which is
shown and from which the artist'
himself can learn."
Maurice maintains that "stand-
ards of acceptance should be very,
high" for amateur works to keep'
shows from being "sops to the
vanity of the ill-prepared."
