Short of using a lucky horseshoe, what are some strategies for getting into shows?
Here’s a note from my own sketchbook/notebook:
Keep up the pace of lots and lots of applications.
Keys to success:
1. Don’t care about rejection. Have so many applications in that you’re always waiting to hear about the next one.
2. Have enough work to apply for lots of opportunities.
3. Don’t limit yourself to certain categories, such as just fine craft.
When I saw Vickie Hallmarks’s post on her 2011 Year in Review, I thought it was interesting that she got into seven shows last year, and in different categories — not just jewelry, but also quilting.
