There has never been a better moment to explore opportunities. While the world waits a bit anxiously for present events to unfold, one must always look to the future and plan the way forward. An artist forges his or her own path, creates the next steps that will advance a blossoming career, builds from the ground up. Find your future in the present moment and take hold. Don’t give up until you get there. The art world is yours for the taking.
