ACHF Arts Access
This project will allow me to present and publicize a gallery exhibition, thus developing a business skill that is crucial for all artists. The outcome will be evaluated by how well the gallery exhibition is received, reviewed, and attended. 2: More Minnesotans will see my work in the exhibition, use the tea ware in an authentic tea ceremony, or obtain bowls through the empty bowls projects. The outcome will be evaluated by the number of people who view the exhibition, use the tea ware, or obtain bowls through the empty bowls projects. A gallery guest book will be available for comments.
The business skills that were to be developed were to present and publicize a gallery exhibition. The outcome was excellent. I was fortunate to have the Paramount Gallery St. Germaine in St Cloud and the McKnight Foundation provide the gallery, and guidance on producing a well-attended and quality exhibition. It was well publicized thanks to the Paramount Arts Resource Trust extensive mailing list and media contacts. It was very instructive to see a well thought out and executed publicity plan. The opening was well attended and well-reviewed on Minnesota Public Radios Art Hounds. 2: More Minnesotans were able to see and use my work through the exhibition and gallery talk on the unique relationship between pottery and tea. Also hundreds more Minnesotans are using tea bowls as a result of the donations to Empty bowls, Habitat for Humanity and arts related fund raisers.
