Gallery hopping is much like going to the gym. If you have a friend who will invite and accompany you to various art openings and events, you’re more likely to leave the couch. No need to torture your significant other with art world networking – find someone who will benefit equally from these excursions. One new app I recently discovered is Shapr – a mix of Tinder and LinkedIn that can help you find people nearby with similar interests and goals.
Order business cards!
It’s really become so simple these days to whip up a business card with little or no design background. Places like moo.com and canva.com have lots of prepared designs to choose from. At Moo, you can also upload your multiple images of your art for a mini gallery in your pocket. It may be old school, but it’s effective.
