Why Open Exhibitions Are Great For New Artists?
I owe much of my recent success to having participated in Open Exhibitions.
I owe much of my recent success to having participated in Open Exhibitions. It’s true you need to find the right exhibitions for your level and style of work, but the internet makes this easy to research.
I suggest you make a list of the exhibitions you feel best suited to your art, noting the deadlines and entry fees (remember there will be other costs such as framing and transporting your work) then make a plan for the year outlining which ones you want to submit work to.
Even if your art is not selected you will learn a lot just from the process of entering. Working to deadlines, completing the paperwork, photographing and presenting your work are all important parts of being a professional artist.
And you never know what having your art selected might lead to.
