I had a big catch up with Kath Bee this morning and early afternoon. I think this was the first big/serious catch up since her Second CD party. And I have to tell you she had a message to all of us.
If you create installations or things-to-look-at, including shawls and scarves that look good on walls, but preferably bigger, artier works, have you ever thought of approaching your nearest/friendliest/most suitable public spaces, (particularly where the wealthy and/or discerning congregate,) to see if they would like to install your work. Even as a loan, you get exposure, which may lead to other things, and/or the space may give you a different or additional shot in your creative arm. These could be hotels, banks, lawyers' offices, schools/universities, municipal facilities, even hospitals/clinics; you know what she's talking about. I know some organizations in New Zealand have someone in charge of maintaining and installing artworks in their building/s; surely this is not unique to here. You may even get lucky and hit a big chain or multi-national; who knows!!
Good luck to us all. My horizons have been broadened this morning. Thanks a bunch, Kath.
