Career development is one of those ephemeral things that unfortunately gets shoved off onto the back burner. Big mistake, especially if you are an artist. It ought to be a life-long pursuit. And, I am no fan of the “starving” artist syndrome. There really shouldn’t be any excuses for that to happen to any of us.
If you are in Philadelphia, or 100 miles from the City of Brotherly Love, for example, check out: The Center For Emerging Visual Artists.
Seek out similar organizations within your own neighborhood or state that supports visual artists. And if you know of any, please email me so that I can add them to this web site.
