hello everyone. just an open question: i create artnudes and other images to exhibit mainly, and i wonder: does anyone else here exhibit their works, i mean, NOT to sell but to just exhibit and share the love of the captured scenes and photography. i mean, if a foto sells great for you but the main idea is to display your works and interact with the viewers... not as some "artists" who just want to sell. is there anyone else who is as crazy as i am??
if yes, then i'd like to know: how can you afford to frame the prints, travel and etc that is related to showing.
i'm now advertising i seek sponsorship for my upcoming exhibits and wonder if this is okay. if someone gives me an outright donation, i'd like to publicly thank the person, or in the case of someone wanting to support the arts/photography by investing money and getting prints in return, i don't really care... i NeeD the money as framing is very expensive. comments of course welcomed and encouraged. i just finished a show and though i only purchased mats as the gallery had frames for me to use, thank goodness it's a friend who provided me with the mats as i can pay for that over a few months... if not.... :-(
i've been eating a lot of potatoes lately being as poor as a slave in Siberia!!
