    I just finished hanging my first exhibition, on display for the month of September. Can I call myself an arteest now, or do I have to wait to see if something actually sells first? :smile:

    Solo show, twenty pieces. I’m absolutely exhausted! I don’t know how you real people do this on a regular basis.

    If you’re in Philly or southeastern PA or south Jersey, stop by.

    It does feel good to have your work on display!

    Congratulations.

    If you don't sell anything it's because you are an unappreciated artist who isn't willing to compromise his vision in order to cash in. You consider your work art and not product to be moved. At least that's what I'd tell myself.:D

    Judging by the stuff you have posted, I think you'll do well. Good luck.

    I will try to stop by even if I don't go downtown that often.

    Take care.

    It does indeed, Jeff. Several years ago, when I started to get a little more serious about shooting, I said to friends that I would be happy if I ever got a submission into a juried show or convinced someone to let me hang my work in their space.

    I'm happy.
