RK has just received an email from a reader concerning this publicity blurb:
"SFBARS members sincerely interested in participating in the preparations for a possible February 2011 ACOR (American Conference of Oriental Rugs) in the Bay Area are invited to join Tom Hubbard, President of ACOR, and Peter Poullada at a lunch meeting at Greens Restaurant in Fort Mason, San Francisco, at noon on October 16th. Depending on response, SFBARS may be putting together an Executive Committee to begin work on this project. Those interested please RSVP to Peter Poullada at 415-602-0709 or by email to Peter Poullada or Tom Hubbard."
We were told it appears on the website for the motel rug show happening later this month.
Frankly, all RK can say about this is to question why hubbard, who with the rest of the "executive committee" messed-up and destroyed any possibilities of having that last, aborted, acor in St. Louis, would be allowed to plan anything other than chucking the airport-art collection of rugs he owns into the nearest dumpster.
And as far a poullada goes, all we can comment is this man is, at best, a neophyte rug collector who believes he is an expert.
Ho, HO on that one because poullada has proven what a rug-schmuck he is. Anyone remember the dumbass article he wrote about the deYoung's Turkmen rugs, and RK comments?
Or how about the novice and worthless contribution poullada made to the deYoung's recent, and great we might add, Turkmen rug exhibition. The nonsensical wall labels were penned by poullada and honestly this man should not be allowed to discuss, or even touch, any oriental rug -- let alone a Turkmen masterpiece.
No, no dear readers, believing a rug-dunce like hubbard, or a big-mouthed know-little like poullada, can organize anything, let alone something worthwhile, is as stupid as believing obama deserved a Nobel peace prize.
Don't make us laugh any harder....
