Wendy’s 2014 Goals
- 8 Group Exhibitions
- Teach at least 3 Workshops
- Write a Magazine Article
- Make a Body of Work for a Solo Exhibition
- Plan & Execute a Solo Exhibition for 2015
- Gain Representation in 1-3 New Galleries
- Work on Getting into a Top-Tier Craft Show (Late 2014/Early 2015)
So far this year, I’ve had work in 3/8 group exhibitions. I have application(s) out for others right now and I am constantly looking for others to apply to. I also have applications planned and out for some of the Top Tier shows I want to get in to.
As you know, I’ve had one workshop already this year. There is another Fold Forming workshop in the works for this Summer and I am planning on added a couple more this Fall.
I have the ideas for both magazine articles I want to work on and I just need to start taking photos so I can shop them out soon. I did clean my studio enough that I can take them without too much fuss before hand.
All of the other goals are inter connected. I am steadily working on my Body of Work as evidenced in all my In Process posts lately. This means that each piece takes a bit longer to produce, but I am getting closer to my approximate goal. Then I’ll be able to plan the solo exhibition and start contacting places to host it. I have also been working on more pieces before contacting galleries to get more representation. Now that I’ve been able to work more regularly, this is getting closer to happening. I already have that I have been in contact with and will be getting more concrete with soon.
All in all I feel pretty confident at this point. Things will be ramping up soon and I have a good feeling about 2014 so far.
