Putting ones work on display is essential for any visual artist. Garnering attention and generating sales are the most obvious reasons for exhibiting. However, the show I am compiling will consist primarily of nudes and I anticipate few if any sales. My main motivation for showing at this juncture is personal. I want to put down a marker indicating where my work stands at this particular time and place. Somehow I need this before moving on.
