Our shows are one of the greatest and best things anyone can do. As artists we met in her shows to get a work out there. No matter what you do or who sees your work art shows are one of the major keys to getting seen by many people.
You have to have your work seen by industry professionals to gain credibility. The more show you enter the more likely hood you may or give me Juried into the show. This is just one of the things are just messed day.
One of the toughest things for artist myself included. I despise and hate thinking that after show this week. But this is just part of the business and I do what I have to do so I might as will enter the show and Bam look at that I won.
So my advice is bite the bullet and enter the shows good luck
