Again and again I see that resilience by artists in the face of rejection is a key factor of success, not to mention satisfaction. I am starting a series of blog posts about rejection for artists.
In that light, if you have a specific way you deal with rejection of your artwork, save all your rejection letters, have a purification ritual after a major disappointment, etc, I'd like to hear from you! Please email Julia and I will try to work you into my series.
I am plotting posts about 1. The Facts (#s from OVAC about different submissions vs. winners and years of submitting vs winning) 2. perspectives from artists 3. perspectives from the "selectors," be they curators, jurors, committees or others. Please give me your feedback! Ciao- Julia
