I was overcome with feelings of vindication when I logged on to your website!

From Heather Berryman

Published before 2005


I am a photographer. I used to be an artist--painter, designer, calligrapher,.... I turned to photography during college in part because of my disgust for the "art" which I was being taught. After years, I decided--and was taught to feel--that I could not be a true artist because I did not agree with the new art world's perception of art. I was overcome with feelings of vindication when I logged on to your website! (I was online researching scholarship possibilities for re-entry into college.) I finally feel like an artist again! Thank you! As soon as I am able, I plan to become a member of your organization. More power to you!
