Um, okay now I'm totally confused, not to mention befuddled. Last week I was takin' a tour 'round the Internets™ because I recalled seeing a mention that the news of Luckystar Studio Gallery's demise had been somewhat exaggerated. My quest produced nothing, mainly because I was in a rush and ya know that things searched for are never found while the seeker is in that frame of mind.
So this morning I took another meander 'round just to see what's happenin' and I came across a September 25 post by Mary Louise Schumacher saying that Luckystar founders Gene Evans and Bridget Griffith Evans will have a venue open for Gallery Night & Day, October 17 & 18. Her source? OnMilwaukee.com's Julie Lawrence.
Okay, I thought, Julie's usually a very reliable source. So I clicked on the link and my eagerness to learn some facsimile of the truth was suddenly plunged into a sea of disappointment and shock as I was greeted by this:
Whaaa? Seriously, whaaa? I mean, I can understand if the article needed corrections or an update--like maybe Gene and Bridget decided that they didn't want to do something for Gallery Night or some other kind of monkey wrench happened to be thrown--but to delete the whole article? Good god, people, that's just plain bad publishing practice, whether it's on the web or elsewhere. Now poor Mary Louise's link goes to a land called Redirection, just adjacent to Nowhere. For shame.
I have perused both Luckystar's website and MySpace page all for naught, and now I'm filled with one thought and one thought only: Must find out what the hell is going on with Luckystar. To that end, I have emailed Gene and Bridget to try to get the answer. Stayed tuned.
