09/22/2004: "Group Shows"
As I mentioned before, I offered to organize a group show at KTOO to get out of having to do a solo in December, as one possible alternative. Jeff Brown (the guy in charge) left a message on my work phone yesterday saying he liked the group show idea and to give him a call. Urg. I have such a hard time making phone calls. Anyway, I'm thinking of some local artists I know who do work that I think would look good together. I'm not sure if Jeff wants me to find the other artists or what, but it might turn out to be as much work (in it's own way) as doing a solo.
I've never been a huge fan of group shows, but who knows, maybe this one will be different? And it will be nice to have a chance to show some of the new tidals paintings without all the risk and pressure of a solo. hmm, yes, this might be ok after all. I'm interested in other artist's experiences with group shows? Maybe I've only had bad experiences because I only did them when I was in school and everyone was immature and irresponsible and there were a lot of big egos involved. Maybe doing a group show as an adult will be different. Any thoughts?
