I have my first pop-up show in a small local art gallery! I don’t feel worthy and I’m probably not. Of course, I am nervous that someone will walk in, look at my work and say “I could have done that!” But it is what it is. I am patting myself on the back just because I had the nerve to put myself out there! :)

No matter how good you are, there is always at least one joker who will say that any way. Just ignore them when it happens.


And congrats!

Unless you're showing humongous mural style scenes or sublimely produced LARGE B&W's, everybody who has a cell phone is going to say they could do that. They may not even think its so, but they say it anyway. There're the same folks who say similar stuff at restaurants and torture the staff with multiple re-do's (and probably never realize they were re-served the same plate at the end) anyway. We both know better.

From what I can see from your post, I think you and your images are worthy. People will enjoy the opportunity to see and share your images. Let them.

Be prepared for the opportunity to sell a copy or two. Know your price without hesitation and know how to take a credit card payment, juuuussstt in case.

Good luck and also be prepared for the compliments you will get. You have some nice images on display.

You are worthy. Don't sweat it. I used to feel that way when playing guitar in front of crowds. I finally realized that all that mattered was that I enjoyed it and so did most people listening.

Congratulations Laura! It is a great achievement.

If I found the right site it says the event is over. Are they just referring to the opening?
