Juried Shows

We all have entered juried shows and are elated when we're notified to participate. The flip side of the coin is will my entry fee be akin to burning $35 bucks in the middle of the road because they've only got room for 35 potters. How does one plan and determine one's fate? For me it's been about even odds the past few years. But, because of what I deem The Tingle Factor, applying to International or Regional juried shows, one just does. Is it just a lottery or aside from squeakingly good images of work, reading through the application form about 4 times to glean each nuance and stipulation, and Googling the Jurors to see if one's work will resonate :lol:/> , what else is there to do? It's so crucial to keep one's Resume fresh and up-to-date with peer approval. What do you do?

Working For You?

Hi All,

Trying to keep up with Mentee Requests and Mentor Matches. It's a little bit of a process. I've just this last weekend put together 7/8 folks. I hope it works. I know that we all have particular wishes and desires. But from my own experience, and from hearing from others -- thank you, a discussion ensues. You call/email and say Howdy/Hi and you're off! Doesn't make any difference if you're wanting marketing experience and so you're hitched up with someone who's been making a living for 30 years from their work. What makes this so deliciously ironic is that Mentor has said they've no marketing experience. Go Figure!

Stop by and see my three tea bowls. So pleased to have been juried in by Ray Chen, Executive Director of The Halcyon Gallery at The Swope Art Museum in Terre Haute, IN.

Exhibition dates are November 2 to December 4. Reception November 2 from 7 pm - 9pm. If you're able to attend, please take pix and let me know how it went. I'd love to attend, but haven't got deep pockets at this time of year!
