2014 plans and Exhibitions

After practiseing for what feels like an eternity, 2014 is finally the year that I will be turning my love of art into a full-time career. And I will be showing my work to the artworld and exhibiting my work at local galleries for the very first time. My first real group exhibition is actually this Friday the 10th Jan and I'm exhibiting 3 of my drawings ' Despair', 'Sikh Warrior' and 'Alfred'. All of which I had done specifically for this exhibition, but I had kept it quite until I got conformation on some bigger news.

Which is that after waiting what felt like forever I finally got the amazing news today that a proposal i put forward for my own 'solo exhibition' has been accepted. It took the commitee at the gallery (which is local and funded by the council) nearly 5 months to come to a decision as they don't normally allow amateur artists to do a solo exhibition, as i have not even exhibited yet and have not even turned proffesional. But i gave them a very in-depth plan and was very persistent and also showed them my work in person and they seemed impressed, so they finally decided to give me a chance.

It will be in August this year and i will be exhibiting 17-18 of my drawings and will have the whole gallery to myself which will run for a whole month. The theme of the exhibition will be 'Emotions', so most of my drawings from now on will explore this subject. But I will also be doing some drawings on my own 'Sikh' heritage throughout the year to as I have plans for those drawings to.

I've got one drawing I'm going to do for my local temple first for good luck (not sure if i'll post it on DA). And then I will go full steam ahead and start to prepare for my exhibition in august.
