How to increase your chances to get selected in art exhibitions

Share

Laura I.Gallery

The question all artists are asking themselves is simple:

How can I increase my chances of being selected in art exhibitions, calls, and other art competitions?
To answer that, it’s important to understand that the discipline require to create art is no different than what it takes to market, sell, and showcase it to potential buyers and art lovers.
Before you apply for any such opportunity, ask yourself why you need to be a part of a particular exhibition. In other words, make an effort to understand how it could affect your career prospects.

Before you can answer that, make sure you know what you want:

  • Do you want to sell your work?
  • Do you want to inspire the world with your art and showcase it?
  • Could their prizes help your practice progress?

In this article, we would like to help you answer these questions and help you take the right decision.
It’s a known fact that it only takes a person to change your life completely. So, it’s important that you do showcase your art as much as possible anywhere you can, within the boundaries of your financial capabilities.

Being featured in any exhibition or display affords you better chances to be discovered; hiding your work in a studio space does not.

Being part of an exhibition can help you meet people and open new doors for you:  new collaborations with artists, networking with professionals, friendships with art lovers.
While not everyone you meet will have an interest in purchasing your work, their support will still be an asset along the way. Feedback is the most priceless gift you can get.
The power of word-of-mouth should not be underestimated. A fine word of encouragement along with a recommendation to a friend or manager could potentially create a chance to make a name for your practice.

It could also increase the chances of selling your art and creating even more opportunities for your art to be seen in other exhibitions and showcases.

Showcasing your art at all times is very important. Displaying it in a coffee shop is fine, but featuring it in a gallery will open up a lot more doors.

The gallery is one of the official professional voices in the art world. Collectors expect that a gallery has a fair knowledge of the art world and will act accordingly. Which means that if a gallery is willing to take a risk on an artist and agree to dedicate their resources in helping that artist, then they must be extraordinary.
In turn, everyone will be drawn to the artist and their work. We know for a fact that some of our artists – who previously had never had the chance to be exhibited in a gallery like ours – attracted a lot more interest after art professionals recognized their talents.
Now that we have established that it’s important to showcase your work anywhere, let’s see how you can increase your chances of having your work exhibited.
First of all, read their terms and conditions. We have had artists who submitted work in sizes bigger than we had requested. Despite the fact that their art was really good, we could not accommodate their work in our gallery.

In addition to that, make sure that the work is framed properly, if suitable. We have had work where the glass came off the frame which resulted in damage to the frame.
As an artist, you are trying to leave behind a legacy. To accomplish that, you also need to make sure that the quality of your materials is exceptional. When you are trying to sell your work, you are expecting someone to treasure it for years to come; your materials must accommodate that and be in great condition.
If you want somebody to love your work as much as you do, then you must really show you love your work by presenting it in the best way possible.
Think of it like having a job interview and dressing in casual clothing, showing up at the meeting and expecting that everyone will love you for who you are. In an interview, you must present yourself at your best, as a professional.

That kind of selection has nothing to do with what you are actually capable of doing and what ideas are running in your head. Instead, it has everything to do with showing respecting towards your art as well as the people around you.
Take good pictures of you art when you submit it for consideration for an exhibition. Good quality pictures not only show your work in its best light but also show that you care about what you do.
It tells buyers and collectors that you take your career very seriously. Nobody wants to work with an artist who doesn’t show commitment and shows signs of giving up in the future.
You must then be willing to be a part of a great show. You must show dedication and commitment to the event you are applying for. Sharing a nice message of how important it is to be selected in the exhibition is going to take you a long way.
Your own job does not end the moment you bring your art in the art space. In fact, that’s only the beginning of the journey.
Think of how you are going to use that opportunity and start building connections, supporting others, and sharing each other’s work. All of those factors will define the success of your show, construct a profile of the type of artist you are, and demonstrate your visions and aspirations.
Don’t be dissuaded if you have already done all this and haven’t made it to an exhibition of your choice. You should keep trying because dedication is appreciated.
If your work fits our criteria for this exhibition, please apply now and get your work out there for people to see and recognize.
