Re: Lost in Monotony: After college dilemma

Thanks for the quick replies!

I suppose I do take for granted a lot of 'cheaper' materials I could use. More importantly, its after I make the work that I really worry about.

Having a safe place to put these things in the interim, or having them placed in a gallery seems like a formidable task in itself.

At this stage in my career, I am finding it difficult to promote myself. Name dropping at galleries, and submitting hard copy portfolios feels a little... forceful. I would really like to get going on actually putting my work 'out there'.

But once again, the professional practice side of being an artist is lost on me, as it is on potentially all fine art graduates out in the world without a clue. Is it really as easy as calling a gallery and asking them their policy on reviewing new artists?
