I love what AOM does and the integrity with which Benny does it. I always try to say thanks by posting a link to AOM on my website.

The Studio in the Woods residency is the first thing I applied for through AOM and I wanted to let you know about my success. I have recommended AOM to my friends. --P. W., La Habra Heights CA

In the last year, I have applied to various galleries and competitions using your listings, with the following successes: 1) Selected as one of the winners, Paperworks show, Long Island, juried by Faye Hirsch, editor of Art in America; 2) Selected for solo show at the Greenbelt Art Museum, Maryland; 3) Selected for the Cambridge Art Association's National Prize Show, juried by Cheryl Brutvan from the Boston MFA. At any time I have about six applications of various kinds out in the world, all using information from the AOM listings. You're doing a great job --long may it continue. --P. H., Chicago
