The very pinnacle of every artist’s starting goal is to hold their own art exhibition. Today, we explore the perks of actually hosting your own art exhibition.
We believe that this is an important discussion to have. Particularly since there are a lot of artists which tends to nurse the belief that having exhibition are costly and ineffective. While there is a good argument for that, we believe that it all just boils down to properly planning.
Here are a few perks to hosting your own art exhibition:
If you make art, it should only follow that you will want people to support and purchase your art. If you manage to book a good gallery, chances are they will have regular patrons who come in looking for new artists to patronize.
If you make a good show, you can be sure that your art will have a market waiting for it.
Establishes Your Identity
While there are a lot of artists that have a strong presence online, if you ask around offline, there would not be many that can tell you about them. This is why hosting your own art exhibition is an effective way of establishing your identity as an artist.
An established identity can also open a lot of door for you in terms of networking and memberships. A lot of communities tend to offer their support to artists who have been brave enough to establish their identity through exhibitions.
If there is anything that a lot of budding artists lack, it would be experience in dealing with real establishments and art brokers.
As a newbie artist, it would serve as a good experience to host your own exhibit. Finding a gallery, composing the overall appeal or organization of your pieces, and even mingling with your guests—all of these are important experiences that can help you better hone your brand and your talent.

Having your own art exhibition should be looked on as a boon rather than a hindrance. While there are some pitfalls in hosting your own exhibition like the costs—these are usually exacerbated by a poorly planned event. In order for an artist to truly mark their presence in the grand scheme of things, a good representation of your capability through an exhibition should always be considered.
