At the beginning of last week I was contacted via Instagram DM regarding an art show in Seattle. After talking to them (and my spouse) I decided to go ahead and take a risk. It might be great for me. If nothing else I will learn something.
Why is it a risk?
This is a show that asks you to sell tickets to cover your booth fees.
I do not have a great record in the selling things area. I joke that I could not sell water to a dehydrated billionaire in the desert. Sad, but true. I can make all kinds of things and I can provide an excellent experience during the transaction, but I have never been great at selling.
We all have our thing and I understand that selling is just not one of my skills.
That is okay though.
I have friends. I have reached out to my friends and I hope that they will reach out to their friends. Through networking I hope I can sell the 20 tickets I need to sell.
About the Event:
This event is hosted by RAW Artists. It will be at Studio 7 in Seattle. It is a two day show, September 6th and 7th. I will be showing my art on the 6th. Any tickets purchased are good for either day (how awesome is that!)
I am working on something to create that is show specific. The plan is to give one to each person who purchase a ticket.
Buy a ticket, get free art
Buy art and get a ticket to an art show.
To purchase tickets please visit my RAW Artist profile page. Click the “Buy Tickets” button and fill out the information.
--Now the Personal Bit--
I am freaking out about this.
Why on earth did I do this?
How am I going to sell stuff when I SUCK at it?
What am I going to do?
I already have PAX, demanding part time job, art, and NO MONEY. Now I have to add an art show.
I do not know what the heck I am doing.
I am just doing it.
