The Art Hub May be a Solution
A new artist could find it frustrating and overwhelming by showing their art. Do you keep a personal journal of your creations? Even if you are a relatively new artist, journal your collective works, even your earliest drawings. Tell the story in stages. What inspired the work? Did you learn the technique from a class, from following a specific artist, from experimenting? Did someone mentor you along the way?
Have you participated in an art challenge, entered your work in an art competition? Journal the experience. Have you received an award? Journal any grants you received, residencies you participated in, and any other honors you’ve received as an artist. Yes, you are an artist. Summarize your education, places you’ve visited, art shows events you’ve attended.
You’re on the way to becoming your own publicist and taking those first steps to acknowledge your art journey and showing your work. Think about showing your art at cultural centers, your local coffee house, art fairs and community art festivals, craft markets and fairs, and art-themed cafes, and other alternative private locations.
