Yes and yes

A cogent observation from Torontoist's Style Notebook, in which two style bloggers went from the Gladstone's SpeakEasy art networking event to the PowerBall in one evening:

Between the two events there was a lot of push and pull going on in our eventful artistic style notebooks. It’s striking that the people who make art in the city, and the people who make galleries like the Power Plant possible through their financial support, are in such obviously different worlds. One is about art, the other is about money—and an event like Power Ball, as glam and glitzy as it is, is a microcosm of their uneasy, almost unnatural relationship.

Yes and yes. True, even if normal and good in its way.
