Part of being an artist means putting your stuff out where people can see it. Every November the art faculty at Palomar Community College put on their own show at the school’s Boehm Gallery in San Marcos. This year, Kim Fraley and I exhibited our work alongside that of our colleagues. I even sold a couple of pieces. It is important to put your work on display and to surround yourself with the work of others, especially for beginning artists. Doing so allows you to see new perspectives and build powerful relationships that benefit your own creativity and success.
