i was so saddened when i clicked on over to motel a few weeks ago and saw the goodbye letter form the proprietress jenn armbrust. i was never able to visit motel in person, but it was a frequent link for me, hell i had it in my toolbar. i first heard about motel about 5 yrs ago. in that time span i have been introduced to so many new artists and products, thanks to the amazing curatorial eye of jenn. just to name a few: megan whitmarsh, jen corace, carson ellis, ryan jacob smith. below are some of the pieces motel has had in past shows. it will be sad to have that hole here on the web and in real time. but from the sounds of jenn's open letter it sounds like she has many more, wonderful endeavors in her future. goodbye motel and good luck jenn!
