For some time I've pondered registering with the Bellefonte Art Museum. Why? Other than the obvious of what artist wouldn't want to? The entire purpose in creating art is not only for our own enjoyment, but hopefully others to enjoy, as well. I also believe for me to grow as a professional, as an artist, and more importantly as a person, I have to simply just go for it and see what happens.
This could also could be considered a double-edged sword. Having an opportunity to perhaps display my work for others to see firsthand could help out on the business side of things, especially with regards to networking. Secondly, having my work seen by other artists could be useful in terms of growth potential from a personal perspective, as well.
While it is a small victory, it is a victory none-the-less and I'll take it.
