people call themselves artists and can't even be spoon fed to get their work out there!

TELL ME WOT DO I HAVE TO DO TO HELP ARTISTS GET THEIR BLOODY WORK OUT THERE WHEN EVERYONE WHINGES THAT THEY DON’T GET OPPORTUNITIES, I CREATE BLOODY GOOD OPS FOR ARTISTS OF ALL TYPES I HAVE SPACES , I PUT MY OWN MONEY INTO THESE SHOWS I GET PEOPLE TO COMMIT TIME AND EFFORT I GET ENTERTAINMENT AND SOMEONE HIGH KEY TO OPEN THESE SHOWS , I GET TONNES OF PEOPLE TO COME TO THE SHOWS ,ARTWORK SELLS , BUT I CAN’T GET A MAJOR PERCENTAGE OF ARTISTS WHO SAY THEY WILL COMMIT TO FOLLOW BLOODY THROUGH, SERIOUSLY YOU WANNA GET YOUR WORK DISCOVERED OR BE SOMEONE THAT IS A RECOGNIZED ARTIST?? WELL GET YOUR BLOODY WORK OUT THERE AND STOP WHINGING , I GIVE YOU A VECHILE FOR IT USE THE BLOODY THING, I EVEN GET SPONSORS SO ARTISTS CAN GET STUFF, FAIR DINKUM IF YOU CAN’T BE BOTHERED WHY ARE YOU ON THIS SITE?? HAVE A GO AND FOLLOW THROUGH ON COMMITMENTS, I AM SHITTY AS CAUSE THIS HAPPENS TIME AND TIME AGAIN , I MAKE NO MONEY FROM THIS AND I VOLUNTEER AS DOES EVERYONE ELSE IF ARTISTS STICK TOGETHER THEY MAKE THINGS HAPPEN AND GATHER A FOLLOWING, THIS IS WHY WE REMEMBER THE GREAT ARTISTS OF THE SALON DAYS THEY MADE IT HAPPEN! IF UYOU CAN’T JUST ENJOY ALL OF THE CANVASES CLUTTERING UP YOUR CUPBOARD OR THE SHITTY ONES YOU GIVE YOUR RELLOS, IF YOU GET NO PEER FEEDBACK IN THE REAL WORLD YOU PROBABLY WON’T GROW AS AN ARTIST ANYWAY! SO BELOW IS THE REASON WHY I AM SO ANNOYED AT PEOPLE WHO DON’T FOLLOW THROUGH ON COMMITMENT!
not everyone on my list has brought in their work that said they would! is it you? if you have or don’t have to please disregard this msg,
if you haven’t pull your bloody finger out and let me know wot the hell you are doing by 12 noon today (mon), i have tonnes of work but plenty of space to fill and i get really annoyed cause i have to hang the bloody thing based on wot i got so let me know and don’t dog me if you said you would bring work , i put these shows on for you the artist and it shits me wen you can’t help me help you and i do believe i give you enuf warning and spoon feeding, i have a great event planned and i need you the artists to be artists and get your bloody work out there, if not why should i bother?
? let me know if you can either way, i am coming up to crunch day and i planned around the people that said they’d put work in…follow through! i do and i don’t mean it in terms of me shitting myself!…thanku for reading this and thanku to those who have committed!

    steve you have a right to be ticked off sure, but by the same token – it might just come down to a lack of organisation or a good diary – im pretty sure (goodness i hope!) that i am not one of the artists you are talking about, but since i get some many emails with opps/comps/jobs/proposals coming through my inbox everyday i can’t be certain this wasn’t one of them! i do understand your frustration mate, you’re putting in a heck of a lot of your own time on this, clearly. my advice you be to forget the guys who don’t get back to you and focus on the ones that really wanna be a part of the project. as you said yourself above you’ve got plenty of work for a great exhibition so forget the ones you don’t have and make it an event to remember! and if you’re anything like me when i shoot my mouth off on social media, you’ll probably read this entry you made in a weeks time and delete it when you’ve calmed down and everything worked out well in the end. all the best mate! and to reiterate my initial comments, cut the lazies some slack as they are probably just insanely busy. no excuse to waste your time – but don’t let them waste your time by investing it in those that clearly want your help mate. go get ’em!

  • fanx tiffany awesum reply, i have had a barage of emails and phne calls this morning from people who had committed but just forgot even though they were reminded, i do have an awesum team which helps me get it 2gether nowadays and sum die hard artists who believe in wot i do and think the same way, it was a lot of newbies who talk the talk but do a no show ! so i spoke my mind and i will leave it to remind me later to why i wrote such a thing!
    the show is looking awesum and i will actually get a huge crowd as usual to experience the event! u are not one of the artsits! LOL
