Thank you for another exhibition invitation notice from museum in MN State, USA. Currenlty I have been working on one of the largest work in detailed wood mosaic collage, so far three months time processed, and almost the 40% portion completed...it's been taking time,,,,create one by one. But there is fun within patience. It will reward back for sure in the long-run. Remembering/learn ing from the old book saying that short-tempered persons never achieve things in the life.

Adding numbers of nationwide and international juried art exhibitions selections this year, working on these opportunities pretty hard. Added North Carolina National, Louisiana National, Nebraska, and Michigan National and possibly Minesota. Added other Japan nationwide show and another international ones under juried. Canada, Morrocco, EU under juried too. Two nationwide USA publications confiremed so far this year. Who eles can do such, thank you for your kind note. Of course, we do not forget the community involved projects constantly which is the important matter for artists to participate in. These selection notice are great information for the our art collectors those who own our artoworks earlier stage by their own choice, they know their own artwork being competitive enough for the nation and international art exhibition basis. Even we usually do not inform these new exhibition information though, its our style to rerturn gift, or challenge further with actual result with further selection. In addition with these act, we can find easier new galleries in national and international basis, yes it is. Continous real efforts can bring us results, and it never betray in the long run.

My Refferal Code is 82227- Build Website of your own.
It is possible for you make your own artwebsite, it is not easy but some kind of study you do by yourself.
I recommend Artspan. Here is the president., Eric's message. He often even give us supportive message in person.
As Artspan enters year 20, I'd like to share with you how and why we started Artspan. I was a working artist in 1994 and went to Palo Alto to do a portrait commission for one of the senior people at Netscape, the first major Internet company. In our conversations, I quickly realized how important the Internet could be for an artist in promoting his/her career and selling work.
On my return to the East Coast, I commissioned a developer to register a domain and put together a website for me - which he did. Alas, it was unattractive, expensive, and I could not edit it myself. In the late 90s there were millions of art websites, so I got no traffic except for visitors I knew personally. And my website had no ecommerce tools.
It was this experience that shaped the Artspan concept when we started up a few years later. It was clear that we needed templated websites that were designed for artists and included the tools allowing artists to customize their own sites and sell artwork. We also needed to make the artist websites individually branded with their own domains, and to integrate them into a marketplace site so that we could attract art buyers who did not know their work. Over the last twenty years and especially the last few, we have seen huge advances in the design and functionality of Artspan's sites and our marketplace.
We remain focused on attracting buyers. Sales of both original art and prints showed a healthy increase in 2018. I expect 2019 to be even better and we have some nice upgrades in design and functionality scheduled to go live in the next months.
So, to all, thanks for being part of this and we look forward to continue helping you grow both your sales and careers. While other website builder companies can offer you acceptable websites; Artspan goes further--for artists since the start!

What is gallery's responsibility and commitmment, and what is expected for their performance from artists point of view. Apparently, it is not only sales of works, it may be easy but further ti-up/ connect with local community, art organization for further business expansion. And more, gallery needs to invest talented artists to bring them to wider art scene without second thought and grow together. They need to make artists best and new work to be seen people in artshows and major fairs. Our studio need a strong gallery who have strong connection and network with museum such MOMA NY/ SF, Whitney in this country, even gallery first collect new style contemporary art. The such gallery is hard to find by emerging artists, but there are existing (we are searching). Recently some museum staffs at Chealsea area, NYC advised us to submit the original shoes mosaic art for their review even taking year(s), because your works is such so special. Apprceiated their comment very much. Will see the review and reply in years. You are fine having with long term perspective, with patience for sure, but it's similarly art making process needs patience, trials and errors, blood, and long time thought and idea and working process that only real artists have been doning. There are so many fake kind of art in this country that you can find easily, but I guess that those will be only short period of life.
