OK. On with the old faithful “art company” introduction.
From: Brian Anthony
To: Ony Obo
Dear Mr. Obo,
Thank you very much for your very interesting email, however I am afraid that I will be unable to help you at this time. These next three months are by far the busiest and most profitable period for my company and I cannot give any time to anything other than finding new artwork for our galleries especially wooden carvings.
You may already know of me since it was you that contacted me. My name is Brian Anthony and I am the director of Brian Anthony Fine Arts & Artist Scholarships. We are dealers in fine art and ethnic art from all over the world. We run eight art galleries and two scholarship centres here in the UK. We also offer scholarship donations to aid up and coming new artists who may otherwise not have the financial means to be able to produce or improve upon their work. Our scholarship payments range from between $25,000 and $150,000 depending on the potential of the artist.
I am sorry but I am unable to enter into your business proposition at this time, however if you have any contacts in your part of the world who may be artists that you think may benefit from our financial help then I would be very interested to be put in touch with them. We are especially very keen on promoting new artists with experience in wood carving and will be happy to offer a very generous $25,000 to $150,000 scholarship package to young or old artists with good potential who may benefit from our help.
You may see some of our latest recipients and awards on our website (just click on the “visit this page” link on our homepage).
If you know of an artist who could benefit from our financial help and who would be prepared to produce work for us to sell or promote then please do let me know.
Again I am sorry that I am unable to help with your proposition at this time but I wish you luck in finding somebody to help you.
Brian Anthony Fine Arts
