I recently found out about a show at our local arts center that I am thinking of applying to. It is a holiday show in December put on by the Brookline Arts Center. I am always nervous about applying to shows. I have never been very good at it since the sting of rejection can last for years. I have been rejected before, hence my reluctance to try again.
But I know that in order to grow as an artist it is something I really need to do more of. Especially now that I am no longer working at a regular job. I am in my studio every day, making things, learning things. Just doing it!
I especially need to branch out from Etsy. It is a good place to send people to so they can see your work but in order to sell things I need to get out in public. As I say, not always easy for me.
The first thing I need to do is make new business cards. My old cards show my old work so I will need new ones. Also, I think I may need a Tax ID. There are a lot of things to think about but the deadline is September 1st so if I am going to do it, I need to do it soon.
