Well it’s time to start worrying about an upcoming Photo Exhibition. I participated in my first Club Exhibition in October 2010. It went very well and my Sunflower in Garden Light won 1st Place in its category (Macro / Close Ups). I was absolutely thrilled to say the least.
And now, we’re preparing to do a 3 week exhibition at the New Brunswick Community College Gallery, Bathurst Campus. I am planning to place my sunflower photo in this exhibition too. But I’m wondering about which other images I should enter.. Here are the one’s I placed in the last Exhibit:
Enjoyed by All
I sold a print of “Enjoyed by All” as a result of that Exhibit. I am thinking of adding my newest photo titled Winter Water:
But that is something I’m sure people won’t want to look at all year because it’s so cold.. so then I was thinking I’ll use this image of the Coneflower instead:
without the quote of course.. Anyone have suggestions on which images I should use? A visit to my Flickr Stream will give you more choices.
I have to make a selection quickly since I have to order the print and get the mats cut to size as well as choose the colours of the mats.
In addition to getting my own images ready for the Exhibition, I have to find out how many others from the club plan to participate, get all the exhibitors on file with how many images they plan to showcase, their selling prices, and then I have to get the framed images to the gallery on March 2nd to hang. The Grand Opening is March 3rd.
I have 23 confirmed images – I should have another 20 within 24 hours.
There’s a lot of logistics to organizing an exhibit and I certainly don’t think I’ll do it again. The worst part is waiting for the exhibitors to get back to me with their information and knowing that if it doesn’t go off well, that it will reflect on me. I guess that means I’ll have to make a pest of myself and hound them until they hate me and then even if the exhibit succeeds, they’ll still look on me poorly because I was a pain in their backsides.
Maybe I worry too much about what others think of me.
I get like that when pressure starts to build – time to go meditate.
