Progress report on my 3rd Venue search!


Well, the votes are in! And guess what? Brochures and Art Packages do in fact work in getting that next venue. Remember I said I didn't know if I would crash and burn, well, I didn't expect such a quick response, but I got great news!

Out of 13 brochures/art packs sent out to various galleries (that I had previously visited in stealth mode) in 2 regional cities, here's the break down.

2 returned as undeliverable. Dumb mistake on my part, my label maker didn't have enough room for the full address, and a quick check of the addresses before mailing, and I still didn't catch it. (Had to be the excitement of the moment! LOL)

2 responded that they were not excepting any new artist's or work.

7 no response at all (thus far, 4 weeks out)

1 invite to a group exhibition in February which may lead to bigger and better things!

1 invite to a co-op gallery to show full time, with a featured show this month! (We hung the work Monday!)

Talk about a crazy week. Wow, and it's only Tuesday.

Will keep you posted of any other results!

Encouragement

I hope you do well with your showings. I am new or fairly new, and I really enjoy painting. I mostly do oils and landscapes. I was raised in the country in the Panhandle of Florida and I have deep roots here. These roots show in my paintings. I have shown my work in places in the small towns here but have never been brave enough to do what you have done. I think it is wonderful you are pushing forward. Be blessed in your gift.
