Although the Borough of Ealing Art Trail (BEAT) doesn’t take place until September, I am already planning and plotting.
WHERE – am I going to display my work
WHAT – pieces to show, WHAT pieces are for sale, WHAT else am I offering???
HOW – am I going to hang my work, HOW do I ensure people come to see me
The other two ‘W’ are easy:
WHEN – September Saturday 9th & 10th and 16th & 17th
WHY – great to be part of a local art initiative, a great opportunity to get my work seen by a larger audience, feel part of the local art community, may get some commissions and sales, offer people a wider awareness and knowledge of mosaic work.
So although it is a long way off, there is a lot to be thinking about and being such a well organised person, I like to get myself well prepared.
I have already signed up and paid my registration fee. I have already realised that as most of my work is currently in various Galleries I will need to prepare some new pieces. I want to be able to show a good range of my work – large and small, indoors and outside pieces, glass and ceramic, abstract and contemporary. I don’t mass produce and each item is unique so I am aiming for quality rather than quantity.
So, you can see why I am plotting and planning already. If you have been involved in a similar event I would love to hear your suggestion or top tips, or more importantly, things to avoid!!
Please put the dates in your diary and I look forward to welcoming you to the art trail.
