I came across this Art Prize site the other day as I was surfing the net – confined to air con in the heat wave that was last week.
And it got me thinking about why I enter exhibitions and competitions. So are some of my thoughts- please let me know your thoughts and why you enter –
# It gives me experience in making items to a deadline and maybe a theme
# Challenges me to do something different
# Makes you feel like I am part of something bigger – contributing to a whole ceramic/artist community
# Gives me an avenue to sell my work
# Creates an opportunity to meet other artists and ceramicists
# Gives me an idea of where my work is placed in the arts community
What are your thoughts on exhibitions/competitions – Please send me your thoughts = post a comment
Happy Clay Days
PS: Next week I will share some of my learnings about entering exhibitions.
