Thought I'd start a discussion about the topic since I'm embroiled in the thumbnail/idea stage for a series of illustrations that I want to do on smoking. It's like art therapy for me but nonetheless I am looking to present it somehow once it's done.
I have a few options through my school since we have two student galleries. I imagine I can also get it into some coffeeshops provided it's not tooo gross or anything. I have some worries there since I don't know all that many ppl in Toronto and prolly wouldn't be able to get too many people out for a showing.
Just curious about anyone else's experiences on CA doing art shows. I know that such a site as this is more focussed on dwarves and guns than anything with a statement so how have you reconciled that if you're interested in the fine art side of things?
Are galleries a viable option if you're just starting out? I do plan on creating the entire series of images myself but I've also heard that it's alot easier to do a show if you get a bunch of people to work on the same theme. It makes sense to me but
I think with smoking, I have alot of personal things to say because I'm trying so hard to quit. I wouldn't want to dilute the msg of the show/statement. Then again, perhaps it doesn't necessarily have to dilute the msg.
