Some words of wisdom for artists who are trying to “make it” who did not submit work to EXPO
EXPO 2008 was juried by Terri Thornton, artist and education director for The Fort Worth Modern, which means the gallerists in Dallas know Terri. If they do not, they do respect what she has done for the education program at The Modern, which is one of the finest museums in the US. That being the case you can bet that many gallery owners/directors will go and see this show.
So now your work is in front of a gallery owner in an appropriate setting. You can now introduce yourself and they can take time to talk to you for a minute, unlike the time you introduced yourself at their gallery during an opening and you felt snubbed because they didn’t give you their undivided attention while they were working.
In short, being a working artist is hard. Juried shows are the things that get you noticed by galleries and are excellent for your cv.
