What is TCFA all about. I’m curious. Pls share details.

Here’s our response…

TCFA is a for profit online gallery with one pop-up exhibition per year. Limited to twenty members selected by a jury. TCFA’s mission is to make the Twin Cities a destination for fine art rather than a fly-over. Chicago is a fly-over when it comes to dollars spent on art because New York, Los Angeles and Miami own fine art as far as the rest of the world is concerned. The ultimate goal of TCFA is to provide an alternative investment opportunity to those buyers who want to discover something for themselves while providing an opportunity to Minnesota’s own fine artists. The gallery is interested in thought-provoking work of quality. The minimal acceptance policy is intentional. Acceptance into TCFA is a definition of fine art excellence and has nothing to do with the politics of funded art programs. It frees the artist to express and convey meaning, relevance and importance as the artist sees fit without the need to adhere to any standards set up by boards or committees. TCFA does not seek sponsorship by major corporations and will never combine with corporations to determine what is fine art, here in the Twin Cities. TCFA is a business, founded with the sole purpose of advancing fine art in the Twin Cities.
