Best Art Messiah

In the WCP's Best of 2011, Mera Rubell has been selected by the CP staff as the Best Art Messiah... Yay!

Best commercial art gallery selected by the CP readers? It is one that I've never heard of and I guess must be new and already packing enough votes: Toro Mata?

But then I find them on the web and from their website:

TORO MATA features a classic selection of furnishings, decorating accessories and artwork imported directly from the master artisans of Peru. Each item is handcrafted using only natural materials and methods that have been passed down through generations. We visit Peru regularly to discover new artists and unique products. Our frequent consultations with the artisans ensures the highest quality standards and allows for superior delivery of custom order requests. TORO MATA's new home at 2410 18th Street NW in Washington, D.C., includes the first floor shop and a mezzanine gallery. We are open to the public daily, including evening hours Tuesday through Saturday. Private product viewings and order consultations are provided to qualified wholesale accounts and interiors professionals by appointment.
Heh, heh... Fail!

sounds like Mera Rubell could be a serious contender for the 2011 Bowling Pin of Excellence!!!!!

Oh the irony of the Best of DC awards... First we have a MIAMI-based collector for our "mesiah" (though I've read up on (e)merge, and hopefully it will turn out to be a good thing) AND then we have a Peruvian gallery showcasing ONLY art and artists from Peru. What happened to the best of DC actually featuring DC?!
