Starting a Small Art Show


Well-known member
anyone have any experience in organizing a small, local art show? Kind of like a community yard sale, but for art? I think it would be fun and a great way to meet other local artists.
When I was young, I tried all manner of whacky things. You'd be surprised. We did coffee houses, abandoned storefronts that hadn't yet been leased, and we surreptitiously hung a group show inside a convenience store once and god kicked out, of course. I started doing shows inside people's houses with cheap signs around the neighborhood that read "art show," like you would for a yard or a garage sale. Many people showed up too. A lot of small sales happened and we met our neighbors. It was fun. I was in my early 20s then.
