Minnesota State Fair Fine Art Exhibition rejection email.


Awe. Someone re-blogged this with the comment that this is amazing. Which got me thinking….It’s actually not.
There is no end to rejection in art (or I suppose in life), no matter how “successful” a person might seem. I had a heck of a last year. Lost of prizes, lots of shows.  I’m sure from the outside it might look like I’m on top of the world…. and to some degree I am. Hard work paying off feels great. But the part I don’t advertise as much is that there is still, and I am certain always will be, plenty of getting rejected. 
They way I see if you don’t get rejected every now then you are really doing something wrong. Your art must be boring. Or you have become complacent and aren’t trying to push things.
I figure the best goal is to keep one upping your rejection. Try to get rejected from increasingly impressive things, grants, publications, institutions, people, etc.
