Just this week I applied to three opportunities. Within two days one already got back to me: my art wasn’t selected for the show.
I was a bit surprised because I thought my work was a really strong fit. At the same point in time I shrugged my shoulders and went on with my day.
It’s probably the first time in A LONG time that I’m not completely heartbroken about a no.
I think my new commitment to always be applying to things is one part of it, and something I now write about at the beginning of each month only for subscribers (it’s not on the blog).
I also believe the conversation here (and this week it’s a short one) speaks to a truth I’m beginning to fully understand and embrace.
Whether your rejection shows up in the form of negative feedback or a refused exhibition, today’s message is important. Watch here:
Your art matters.
Until next week,
