this is how we STEW IT
I making stew in the slow cooker today. *cues the Fall music* Like clockwork, soups and stews suddenly appear several times a week once the temperature outside drops 10 or 15 degrees. Old habits die hard, and I have no motivation to change this one since it only leads to easier dinners and more studio time. Other habits are worth changing though. Late night snacking has to stop (for me), and breakfast has got to get less boring. What norms do you want to change?
My studio habits are already on the move. I have been slowly shifting my work toward the studio work that will be my future. I’ve worked hard to change my thinking about the expected artist career arc, and the effect I allow the perception of others to have on my work. It started with a media change and progressed to extricating myself from multiple arts organizations that were all take and no give. It has now moved to considering opportunites based on desired outcomes versus how I feel about entering. I will still enter shows whose themes excite me, but I am better equipped to say “no” to shows that don’t serve my purposes.
With that process in mind, I am breaking another of my rules by publishing two calls in one post. They both come from the same gallery, Limner, that has a long curatorial and sales history to be dissected and interpreted by you. But these opportunities couldn’t be more different. One show is a more traditional juried show with standard risk, fees & commission with the possibility of a bonus publication award. The other show is a lightly juried, retail-oriented show that has no entry fee, but front loads the risk of no sales onto you with a hanging fee. The commission skews sightly less as the pieces get more expensive. Depending where you are in your career and what your current goals are, one or both of these shows can work for you. But you have to do the work to figure it out. No more auto-pilot. Let’s make that next year’s theme… no more auto-pilot.
These calls cover a wide spectrum of show options in one place. Check out these Calls for Entries from Slow Art Productions for Emerging Artists and Holiday Smallworks at the Limner Gallery (Hudson, NY). $35 & 35% for the Emerging Artist show. No entry fee & 35% after the first $100 on the Holiday Smallworks show. Both are open to all media and all artists. Carefully examine these opportunities…
