What is a successful exhibition?

The weekend is over but there are still 3 days left to see our exhibition. There have been so many visitors to the gallery, at least 600 on the opening day and a few hundred yesterday. I have sold a lot of paintings for a record amount which makes me very happy. I of course have to pay for the rent of the gallery, the drinks, the snacks – not to mention the framing costs of course. So I cover my costs and make a small profit and that makes me happy.
I think the real success is that I have had time to get to know Tina Thagesson and Daniel Luther, the two other artists in the exhibition. I have sold art to people who have bought my art before which is great but also people who don’t know me personally. The latter is a big step in my development as an artist because it is a lot harder to sell to strangers, my paintings are becoming more professional maybe! So, I am happy, it’s a lot of work but it has been worth it.

  1. Congratulations, I knew it was going to be a success, this is just the begining, best is jet to come. I would like going, but it´s a bit far away for me. Again congratulations .

    1. Sorry for my slow reply here, I have been so, so busy lately. The exhibition was a success and I will definitely have joint exhibitions again in the near future. More people come if there are 3 artists, our networks merge and it’s very positive.
