Hi Tori! Welcome to the forum! As for galleries, it’s all about making contacts. Get out there. Chat with owners and managers. Sometimes they are looking for local talent to bring in new and local visitors to the gallery. You also never know what a gallery is looking for. You may be good enough for them now. If you aren’t, then practice, practice, practice. Develop your own style and rock it! ( I am also in the middle of now where, but the galleries are THERE, you just have to seek them out. ) You can also interest other venues to hold a trunk show of your art to draw visitors to their location. Here they have small one room school houses or museums that routinely welcome new artists to hold a show and small reception. Just another option. As for shipping out of the country, shipping can be quite expensive and the materials to ensure a safe travel are pricey, as are the insurance and postage.

I don’t tend to enter contests out of country, nor to do send art to unsolicited invitations to unknown venues.
