I was quite impressed that the national art people would take the time to write back, many local small time places are much less considerate. It is great to at least some of the work seen by national gallery people, even if no prints are shown or purchased. Maybe someday before I die or after, a single print of mine will hang in this facility, that would be a dream come true. To have a person I photographed in Asia or maybe even a print of dad hanging in those hollowed halls, would be so wonderful and rewarding.
Here is a link to the gallery in Ottawa, well worth a visit if you have never been there. I saw a wonderful Donald McCullin retrospective show there 4 or 5 times when I visited a couple of years back.
