No you're dumb! But ya that makes sense. Although your percentage might be a bit off if it was a piece in a prominent art show. Keep in mind that most likely approximately 4% of the active people will "see" the art of the year winner first hand (assuming every copy is owned by an EB member) if the print is a run of 250 (excluding variants) like last year's winner. Or something to that effect.

Topic hasn't really been getting attention in the interest of overall site and forums structure. It is in the back of my head though.
