Interested artists are invited to come by with their art in the original or in reproductions to have it appraised; whoever comes first is served first. In a kind of experiment that involves both speed and endurance, Waxman looks at the work for 25 minutes and then writes a 100 to 200 word review - and promises a considered and critical, but not necessarily positive, assessment. "The Reviews are then posted in the office.
