Exhibits - a small "how to" series

I'm in the midst of preparing for a solo exhibit so I thought I'd try to write a little series on the topic.

part of my Roots + Wings Exhibit, 2018
I presented my first solo exhibit in 2018 and I found it difficult to find information online about how to prepare an exhibit. There are bits and pieces here and there, and I have participated in many group exhibits but that doesn't really prepare you for running your own show.

Here's what I think I will try to cover, and I'll break it down into separate posts so it's not overwhelming:

1. Selecting a theme - more difficult than it seems!

2. Applying for exhibit space - writing an exhibit statement

3. Exhibit check list - things to remember

4. Selecting images for the exhibit - narrowing your focus

5. Creating an exhibit catalogue

6. Publicity

7. Artist Talk - yay or nay?

8. Asking for feedback/Public involvement

I'll try to get this rolling in the next few days....stay tuned!
