A Wild Hair
A few months ago, in a moment of impulsive action, I tossed my name into the hat to exhibit at the American Craft Council Shows.
I’ve never participated in this type of show – where I have to set up a booth and spend hours on end chatting with the public and selling my art in person.
I never planned to do something like this as the effort and investment always sounded like something I wasn’t interested in.
Not to mention all that standing around and talking. As an introvert, this is maybe not high on my list of things to do.
But clearly I was ready for a change in my art career as something compelled me to give it a try.
Happily I was selected to be one of the SDA nominated artists to exhibit at show.
Five days of standing in front of my art and selling it!
Yikes. I have a LOT to figure out.
But I’m excited – something new – something different. A challenge is always good. Booth design, marketing materials, lights, signs, what artwork do I show, travel arrangements, fun stuff to think about!
I’ll share my progress as I proceed down this new and exciting path. To date my efforts have included securing a hotel room so I have a place to sleep. Everything else I can improvise :):)
Where do you need to shake things up in your life?
