In this episode of The Living Artist, the topic is gallery readiness. Are you ready to be represented by a gallery, or showcase your work through an established gallery? Preston talks about the importance of trying and failing when approaching galleries and how it can help develop the drive to get better in your own work and approach. He also discusses other aspects such as balancing out doing the work with letting go, building your own art community, catch-22's in the art world, gallery referrals, and becoming so good that they can't ignore you.
