Today was a great first day back in the normal swing of things. I got so much done; made an optimistic new budget and plan on saving a hunk of money each month to go towards submissions for exhibitions in Richmond and elsewhere. If anyone hears of places looking for new work, share in the comment section below!
As far as artists out there who may be curious of some of the opportunities I'm looking into, here's a few places I've started applying to - or are considering applying to - that have deadlines decently far off into the future that you should consider applying for too!
These are just a few, but there's a great Facebook page called "Artist Opportunities in Virginia" that's just that - great opportunities to look into!
I got great advice from a truly wonderful professor at VCU, Barbara Tisserat, who said that it's very important to read about the juror before you submit your work to be judged. If he/she too is an artist, view their work - see their style. No artist has an infinite amount of money to spend on entry fees, do your research and choose wisely!
Hope everyone had a happy Monday! In case you did not, here is a video that will help. Thanks to my brother-in-law, Allen, I've had it stuck my head all day long.
