Being a 'real' artist, observation, questions?

Have had my first art show in Indianapolis ( on September 19th. Boy, was it a learning experience. Didn’t sell a lot, but got great feedback, a lead to my 2nd show (October 2nd at a local gallery/martini bar’s First Friday event). Seems shows are a lot of work, and galleries take a huge percentage of the sale. Guess there isn’t a happy medium. Can you be successful at both?
