UC Irvine professor of anthropology, Robert Garfias, should be applauded for his efforts to involve minorities in the high art of our European tradition ("Elitist Art World Hostile to Minorities, Professor Says," April 18). . . . Unfortunately, opportunities to participate, which Garfias admits are currently available, will not be exploited because of one simple fact: aesthetic preference is based upon familiarity. Elite art forms are alien to minorities because their life experiences do not include sufficient exposure to such forms.

His formal nomination to the council, the 26-member policy-setting body of the National Endowment for the Arts, is expected in early 1987 and will be subject to congressional approval. "He is under consideration at the White House," said a highly placed staffer at the National Endowment for the Arts.

The Orange County Arts Alliance has dismissed its two paid staff members as part of what president Robert Garfias called a "new reassessment period" for the arts planning and service organization. Garfias said Thursday that the dismissals of administrative director Michelle Weigand and her part-time assistant, Nena Gayton, are effective March 31. Volunteers will be handling these staff duties. There are no plans now to fill the two posts, which were the alliance's only paid jobs, said Garfias.
