Deep Thought Thursday: Show it again, Sam
When is it okay (if at all) to exhibit previously-shown art?
Are there hard and fast rules?
Are there loose guidelines that you abide by?
Here's the message from Jeanne Guerin-Daley that prompted this:
I find myself wondering if it would be okay to exhibit work which has been shown before. I certainly understand that an artist shouldn't keep showing 3-year-old work over and over again. But if one shows a work in one venue, and it doesn't sell, then maybe a year later, that same artist gets a chance to show in another venue, maybe in another state or at least in another area, and that work isn't yet sold, would it be okay to show that same work?
