Rethink How You Organise Your Exhibitions - Part 1

Meeting with a dozen other artists today to organise our annual Easter art show. Last year we ran it more as a cooperative opportunity rather than the typical you-drop-it-off-and-pick-it-up idea. It worked a treat. Instead of letting sold work hang until the end of the show, we offered the purchaser the work immediately and let the artist hang another work in it's place. That is a change that's been long overdue. Why should the artist lose a selling opportunity? Major retailers don't let space lie idle, so why should we?
