We appreciate the article recapping the results of the Art Alliance of Idyllwild’s recent Eye of the Artist event. In one part of the article, writer Marshall Smith correctly quoted me as saying that gross profits had surpassed last year’s event. I incorrectly used the word “profit” when I should have said (and actually meant) “proceeds” when referring to the success of this event.

I appreciate the opportunity to correct my misstatement.
