I show some of my artwork on a website called see.me and they have organized an event in New York which – woohoo – I was chosen to be a part of. They will show art from 103 countries and the show will run from July 25th until September 10th.
PLEASE VISIT MY SEE.ME WEBSITE AND HIT THE SUPPORT BUTTON, it’ll help me getting more opportunities to show my work etc. – THANKS !!!
The following is the letter they sent me:
Congratulations! Your work work will be shown at The Story of the Creative! This message is to confirm your materials have been received and you are officially part of The Story of the Creative exhibition opening in our New York City gallery on July 25th, 2013.

We’re thrilled to have you as a part of the show. Your hard work is done, you’ve made great art. Now we are going to get busy producing this massive show. Thanks again for being a part of the See.Me community.
Please join us this Friday, June 14th from 6 pm to 9 pm to celebrate the Best of Gage, showcasing drawings, paintings and sculptures by Gage student artists – at Gage Academy of Art in Capitol Hill. There will be drinks and snacks. Awards are given in seven categories. I have submitted a sculptures this year, my first time, wish me luck 🙂
In January this year I was part of my first art show ever. I showed a drawing in the self-portrait exhibition at Gage. It was not easy to make the next step and show a drawing publicly. Massive self doubts crept up, what might others say or think – you know. BTW showing your art in a gallery space (hanging physically on a wall) is different from posting it online – after all you might run into someone who actually knows you 🙂
It’s difficult enough to show for the first time but to show a self portrait for starters was even harder. Anyway, I did it – here I hang:
And here the description for the drawing – a bit larger so you can read it:
The show was judged. I didn’t win anything. But, my drawing actually hung right next to the first place winner and one away from the second place winner. I’m taking this as a good sign – and encouragement to keep going, haha 🙂
