I have installed all of the artwork I have been creating over the last year at Plum Elements Gallery in Charleston South Carolina. As I put on my “public face” with my work I wonder how I stay true to who I am and what I want to create given the feedback I am about to receive. Do I take this feedback/criticism into consideration or just take it all with a grain of salt? It is difficult to not take this experience so personally since I am putting my most personal self out there for all to see. Only an artist does this. Laura, I wonder how you feel now that your art exhibit is down and if you received feedback/criticism that is changing (or not changing) what you may do next in your work. Perhaps your practice at staying “centered” has helped with this part of being an artist.
I will have to check back in on this blog at the end of September when the show comes down to share how I felt the whole experience went. Until then, here are a few pictures of the work in the gallery. For more detailed pictures, go to my website www.tinahirsig.com
