As my artist's statement explains, my work is utterly incomprehensible and is therefore full of deep significance. -- Calvin and Hobbes

Good Grouping!

We artists talk to ourselves. (I'm grouping us all together. as if.)  We are alone a lot, so you can't blame us for talking back to the radio or inciting dissent in a quiet studio of one. We also agree with ourselves more than the average opportunity would avail.  Hey, I'm alone, I have to take advantage of the perspective, it's all I've got!

Anyway, you the artist...You're saying to yourself, "Self, I am an artist darnit!  My voice, ahem, brush! needs to be heard, or seen or something."  Well, then get out there!  You have my permission.  Do it! Do it today! Do it soon, at least.  Ok, ok, make a plan to do it in the near future.  I'm here to help. I've got a basic and nifty quick start guide to getting started with your first group show. Neat!  (I didn't write it, so don't clap yet.)  I came across the article today in the Friday Five blog. She didn't write it either, but thanks, Amanda Makepeace for posting it. Keep reading, it's coming.  ;)

Perhaps you're the expert! Skilled at planning and hosting group art shows already?  Please leave your comments with your own website/articles/links after this post!  We will look out for you and your sage offerings and I'll likely blog about you.  If you are in Atlanta, please suggest venues while you're at it!

Hopefully, in the weeks to come, I will be able to post about additional ways to enhance your group shows and really make a splash!

Alright already, if you are wanting to do shows around town, but don't know how to muster a solo show or you are trying to get noticed by galleries, then do a group show!

Things to Ponder

Don't pay any attention to what they write about you. Just measure it in inches. -Andy Warhol

We keep moving forward, opening new doors, and doing new things, because we're curious and curiosity keeps leading us down new paths.
