Today's dilemma or work avoidance tactic is...
Do I join a local artist exhibiting group?
No, not at my house, that would require a huge tidy up timetable.
but as part of a group exhibition at a venue.
I joined in with it 2 years ago but it did not require me to pay a lot.
Now, understandably, they are asking everyone to pay a full membership fee.
I understand why people have to pay the fee.
These are the thoughts bubbling along in no particular order.
It supports local artists and it does not require great distance travelled.
I have some work in mind but I haven't actually started it yet.
if I pay I know I will be fully committed to it all, as I am that sort of gal
but the big issue is always the cost
I need deadlines and goals to keep me producing work
How much do I value other people considering me to be an artist?
I think I know the answer but thanks for mulling it over with me.
