Another Rejection Notice From The Art Foundation Of Alberta

The families of tthe dump work was rejected by the art by acquisition jury (expert panel)  in my province of Alberta. I will not be able to donate that money to the families. The donation to the people total stays stuck at $1370 CAD.

Here is the  most recent rejection letter, a generic (my name is not mentioned) letter they sent out to the masses.

Thank you for your application to the Alberta Foundation for the Arts Art Acquisition by Application Program. There were a total of 700 works submitted for consideration, received from 172 artists across the province.

Your submission has been assessed by an expert panel, comprised of members from the Alberta art community. I regret to inform you that the work you submitted for this deadline was not selected for acquisition. We appreciate your interest in the programs offered by the AFA and encourage you to apply at the next available deadline, which is 
April 1st, 2018.

Yours sincerely,

Erin M..............
Manager, Art Collections


Here is ome of the rejected imagery and people they did not want to add to the collection. I let the people in the dump down again, did not get their stories seen and told. I failed them again. They will continue to be the forgotton people of South East Asia.
