Excitement! Anxiety. Excitement!
I’m so honored to be invited to show my work. I believe I make art to share with the world by posting photos online, but recently I’ve received invitations by art galleries to show my art up-close and personal.
Even before I began making art, I always appreciated being near it, something transcendental happens when it’s viewed in person.
Go to galleries! See art. Especially contemporary art. Especially after this never-ending pandemic.
Someone told me that she only does first dates at art galleries, because it give her and her date something to immediately connect to and discuss. Sounds brilliant!
It also works with second dates, third dates and anniversaries. The point is, visit your local art gallery.
I’ve discovered that shipping my work is an emotional process. I worry that it won’t be well received, and No one will show up to view it. So while I might appear calm and collected, please believe me, I’m not. On the inside, I’m giddy and nervous.
With that being said, I’ll need a moment for myself to just be proud of my accomplishments thus far. No matter if my art sells or not, I’m making myself vulnerable and putting it out there. So, give me a couple of days to post locations and exhibition dates.
In the meanwhile, I want to say thank you for all the love and support here on IG. It’s truly appreciated 🙏❤️
