Anyone have thoughts on gatekeeping in #art ?
When I joined a collaborative art show this year, I got a feeling that some were looking down on me because my work wasn't a 'collection.' There were others that were accepting, but I got a sense like I was less important because my pieces didn't have a cohesive element bringing them together. Personally, I think artist statements do the lifting there, but that's just me.
If you are going to self-quarantine, you should have some art to look at. Come to the show!
March 20, 7pm at The Works.
Bah. I knew mounting this piece would be a challenge and I really spent my time to get everything even and lined up. However, panic set in. So I have some of the medium I was using to glue it down on the piece and a wrinkle. 😰
Any ideas? I suppose I could do a white acrylic around the lakes and MI? Meh.
A reminder to my Edmonton peeps here. I am doing my first art show as part of a collective at The Works on March 20!
Live music, a dancer, drinks, and 13 artists. Come check it out. The tickets are here and support a good cause-- https://www.eventbrite.ca/e/cal-presents-the-color-of-pomegranates-tickets-91384542627?aff=efbeventtix
If you're around Edmonton this March you can come see my first ever attempt at an art show.
Writer, video editor, motion graphics occasionally pay me. Creating art and having conversations fuel me.
