Well, I don’t know about you but I am in the dogs days here in AZ. We have already had 120 degree days and now that it is July it has cooled off a bit, but now it gets muggy, although I love when out apocalyptic monsoon storms start… But, vacation is over and now I am back at looking at my upcoming projects and prioritizing, getting ready for the upcoming season.
So, what do you do as an artist in the summer? Do you take time off from creating, get some R&R, and recharge the batteries? I hope so, we all need it! But it is also a great time to plan your year, start looking for Fall exhibitions to apply for, renew your written materials, photograph new work, update your website, etc.
I have you covered! Review my blog posts to help with ideas about writing, web, and marketing! If you need customized help contact me immediately and we can get started updating anything you need! Check out the CALLS FOR ART page to see upcoming deadlines and prepare those applications! And definitely don’t forget to apply for the NEW AZ ART show I am curating at the Walter Art Gallery in Scottsdale this September! Selected artists will have work installed at the gallery and featured in my online virtual Thermal.Gallery. Its kind of a big deal 😉 and we had a very generous sponsorship donation so we have deleted the review fee!!
Looking forward to seeing those applications and your new work! Stay cool and get ready for a busy season!
