So what everyone is saying is that whomever is wanting to to get there name out and become well known from their work is that they have to actually get out and talk to people and market their art work/wood projects anyway you can Instead of having it stack up in your garage or attic or wherever collecting dust. In my opinion it is hard to market their art pieces because most people are wanting modern woodwork that fits their life style. A fancy art piece will look out of place now days depending on where you live. I personally would ask galleries what it would cost to let you show a piece or two. Whats it going to hurt. You lose a little money but your name will start to be known. And also if everyone hasn’t noticed the internet is becoming every ones way of shopping for stuff. To lazy to get out or just wont get out. There are many options to get your name out. Research the best way for you and go from there. There are many talented artist/woodworkers out there. Lumberjocks and woodweb are not the only places you can post your work. Sooooo get off your butt and research and post those remarkable pieces out there. Here’s another Idea. You can also ask furniture store owners to see if you can place one of your projects in there. Of course if it sells they will make a percentage. but who doesn’t. I would go where most people will look. How many of you go to an art gallery once a week, month or year even. I bet not many. Showing your work, and meeting people is the best way your going to get your artwork out. No one will get known if they just stay inside there box. The people looking for Art are beyond those walls. So cut a hole in it and peak out and you’ll see that their there. lol. Eventually You’ll break out of it if you want recognition and make the money you deserve for you beautiful work. Good luck to All who want to be famous.
