The Waiting Game….Is It Worth It?


Now it’s waiting time. I have entered two shows in the last two weeks, one in Alaska and one in Colorado. There are several others that would be appropriate for my work (both fiber and digital), but too many entry fees really add up.

The Alaska show is one I’ve entered twice before and been accepted to, entry fee is reasonable, but I haven’t sold anything yet. My digital partner has sold pieces every time she enters – just not one of “our” pieces! So at least the odds for acceptance are in my favor. My first piece was an art quilt, second pieces were digital art, and this year’s entry is a very involved art quilt.

The Colorado show is also one I’ve entered and been accepted into, and there’s no entry fee, but a 30% commission. Haven’t sold anything, and haven’t entered in the last couple of years. So I’m hoping my work is unusual enough to be noticed. Once I hear something, I’ll post more.

I guess the questions for all of you are those of necessity. Do we need to have a juried list of acceptances to be seen as “real artists?” Do you choose which shows each year you want to enter? Do you set a budget specifically for art shows? Are there some shows you have more luck with?

Inquiring minds really want to know….and…wait for it….it’s the weekend!! More time for art!
