The Trading Post
08.12.18. Now that the Trading Post has been operating for exactly a month, we'll be making some changes in response to some problems that have arisen since it's introductions. Comments can no longer be edited after a certain amount of time, so we ask that you post ONE strudel per comment, so that you can hide the comments after it has been traded off. Posting multiple in the same comment causes confusion if you cannot hide just one strudel in particular. ALSO if your strudel is not on the masterlist, please post to the Can't find your strudel? entry on the StrudelCupboard (https://www.deviantart.com/strudelcupboard) to help us find any missing babies! We're super quick about updating!

thought id share with you guys some art news !

i have just recently applied for a space in the ulster hall which is a local renovated building specifically for the arts ! i find out soon whether they have accepted me but i thought id share in my excitement/fear of the application .
successful artists will have a month long exhibition for the body of work space they would need - a WHOLE MONTH ? ! it may not be much to some but put yourself in my shoes - not many people get to rreally see my work and ive never exhibited anywhere but in school - so for me this is a BIG DEAL ! and a window for opportunities :]

sadly i cant display my latest work and my personal favourite (below) as it now has a home in AUSTRIA with the persons featured . but hey an artist has to part ways with their work sooner or later right ?
Something Beautiful by petebritney

anyway i find out in the next few weeks whether or not i get it , so please keep your fingers crossed for me ! and i'll let you know as soon as i hear anything !

Why dontcha ask them to mail it over for the exhibition? It is a one-chance kinda thing, and I'm sure they wouldn't mind. After all, you did draw it, and you are only borrowing it temporarily. ^^
petebritney's avatar
Someone at work suggested i do that , its an idea i'll definitely consider ! but the postage from Austria to the UK could be rather expensive :s but then again the opportunities that come from people viewing that piece could be greater :) thanks for putting your idea forward ! !

you could compromise? say you pay half half? :P
or..you could start one of those donation pools on here. every little helps, right? x)
Anyway, lot's of luck to you whatever you decide! :heart: :peace:
petebritney's avatar
yeah , well the donation pool is a nice idea but i get enough from comments and such from deviantart users that i dont know whether id feel comfortable asking for money - who knows ! i still have to get the space and i dont know whether i'll get it either :)

Great news. I hope it works out.

Seriously, I'm surprised you haven't exhibited before. Maybe you should be more proactive in that respect. You know, art is about communication, so it's important that as many people as possible see your work.
petebritney's avatar
i know , but i always had a weirdness about an arrogance that could be considered by showing off your work :s idk , ill work on that and hopefully show my pieces to people more :)
servieres's avatar
I don't think it's arrogant to want people to see your work. It certainly doesn't apply in your case, anyway. It's quite obvious from your work and your comments that you are a very sincere person.
petebritney's avatar
im so glad you see that in me :)
