    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.

    We used to move every two years. After 24 years we are finally done moving around! I have had anything and everything for a studio space; tv trays. fold and store tables, full room to anything I wanted, little desks, and just a back pack.

    I have been allowed to experiment due to the constraints of different spaces in different places. I thought I would be happiest in a large – all to my self- dedicated studio, where nothing ever had to be put away for other events. Where projects could overlap and over flow.

    I was wrong.

    For me, I need to be in the middle of everything. If I am tucked away, I feel claustrophobic and isolated. I forget to keep house and forget to feed my family! LOL.

    My current workspace is an antique school master’s desk pushed up against a giant bay of windows overlooking our property. I can be in the middle of everything, and still keep up with my art at the same time. Since it is easily accessible, it is never out of sight/out of mind :D

    Photos of my space are on my blog.

    I tackle a great deal of photography and watercolor. I’ve been toying with the idea of water friendly oils, but I haven’t committed to that one yet. I used to do acrylics and am really disappointed that the new hydrocryls aren’t available in the US.
