Have been working on a ton of drawings and paintings lately now that I work part time.
Anyone ever had an art show?
How’s you get around to do it?
How’d it go?
find a gallery or a space.. make a booking 3-6 months in advance..
work towards it.
deadlines are good.
depends the space but most places will take 50% of sales.. and probably also a fee for the space..
depends on the space tho, if its like a proper proper gallery you won't have a chance as they are usually booked for at least 12-18 months in advance with their own artists.. so look for a community gallery or a co-op or something
or local bars sometimes have art in the places.
The way I did it was find a space to lease with decent weekend foot traffic for a few days: Fri-Sun. Then got some artist friends to split the bill and contribute. We set up shop and I made a few bucks from zines and posters. Didn't sell any originals. Some of the other artists were able to sell a piece, but overall it was a loss.
I'd keep this for Spring 2021 at least, with all this corona going around.
You can do a closed show record it and put it online until then.
- But the way to go would be to send works to galleries and get one of them to accept you as a resident artist and do a show for yougrafician
- Galleries have PR dep. that invites collectors and relevant people to attend the shows, if you want to sell, you need thosegrafician
- You will also need to have a strong online presence too, rock instagram with your works and process, to create some buzzgrafician
- I'm partner of a museum, where I've exhibited in the past and for which I was working at in a one week long workshop and expo, comic and illo works...OBBTKN
- We've postponed ALL gallery and face-to-face activities until next year, not only mine. If you can, and you're not in a hurry, I'd wait for next springOBBTKN
