127 Major Finished Pieces

Obviously I’m a little late getting this posted for the 2nd quarter’s goal check-in. Just know that there is a lot of turmoil going on in other non-metal parts of my life that have been intruding too much into these better areas that I would prefer to focus on. Depression can be a real bugger.
Let’s start with the first goal – solo exhibition. I don’t have any concrete news on this front, but I have been getting out there and contacting galleries about this. So active work is happening and that I am happy about. Hopefully soon I’ll get something more concrete to share with you.
You can tell that even with the decreased blog post count I’m not exactly where I wanted to be with this. I’m back on track now though to continue giving you content once a week.
As well as continuing to have work at JAM Gallery, I had a few pieces in the PA Guild of Craftsmen Instructor & Student Exhibition in February and the Community Art Show at the Lancaster Museum of Art is going on right now. So that’s two of 4-8 group exhibitions down. Plus Handmade Holidays 7 will be this December. That’s three!
I’m at the same level of galleries since the last check in, so that’s OK. I wouldn’t mind adding another before the holidays, but I also haven’t been working actively on that this quarter.
The 12 finished major pieces will not be an attainable goal. That was based on making mostly sculpture, and I have been working on some more jewelry and just in a general slow down in regards to making right now (see note above.) I have three finished sculptures and I am almost done with my box for the 2016 YBC Challenge, so that will be four. I will be working on jewelry after that for my upcoming Holiday craft show and HH7, so probably I’ll be able to get maybe 1-2 other major pieces finished this year. Hard to say yet though.
I have been making it out to at least 1 art/networking event each month, so Yay Me! I still need to up the ante, so I can always improve this one.
How about you? Are you hitting your waypoints in 2016?
