About 2 weeks ago I sent out a short and sweet survey to my Art Fix mailing list. The first question: "How Satisfied Are You With The Current State of Your Art Career?"
The questions that followed dove deeper into the specific hurdles artists find themselves jumping over right now. The answers were a mixed bag, but one hurdle kept popping up again and again.
One of the biggest problems most artists face is finding exhibition opportunities for their work.
Folks, this is...bad. In fact it’s a deal breaker. If you’re not showing your work, in some way or another, you can’t possibly be selling your work! People have to be able to see what you make in order to fall in love with it and decide they want to buy it.
So, I read every single one of your comments and poured over your answers....And then I got to work! Right now I’m almost finished writing "How to Craft a Killer Exhibition Proposal".
I have news for you. There are plenty of places to show your work outside the commercial gallery system. Let me repeat that for you:
There are plenty of places to show your artwork outside of commercial galleries.
But if you can't write a simple, professional exhibition proposal you're missing a lot of those opportunities.
I want you to be able to take the information in "How to Craft a Killer Exhibition Proposal", tailor it to your own needs, and then run with it!
I want this thing to be a powerful tool to get your act together and get your artwork into exhibitions and out into the world---Now.

So before I do the audio program walk-through that goes along with the guide, I need your help….again. (Y'all are always so helpful. Thank you!)
What questions do you have about writing exhibition proposals?
How confident are you in your ability to write a great proposal?
If you’ve never written an exhibition proposal, why not?
How often do you send out exhibition proposals?
What would you like to hear me talk about in the "How to Craft a Killer Exhibition Proposal" audio program?
