Why challenge new opportunities to exhibit regularly? by participating through juried art exhibits and public art projects. There is a word, Nothing ventured, Nothing Gained. It is same for being artist stance or gallery stance. It is the right advice from human history. We have been preparing for upcoming opportunities with better condition.

偶然の結果できた作品は、アートでは無い、それらは、まぐれベースの作品であり、その一回はアートと呼んでもよいであろう。その他、同プロセスで制作された複数の作品はただの付録であり、アートではないと断言できるだろう, また真摯的な観点からも そうは呼べないであろう。もし我々が同じようなシチュエーションであったならそれらはすでに一般公開せずに、破棄されている。そういったレベルであるべきである。毎時運任せのまぐれの作品は Art とは呼べず、浅い夢のようであり、ほとんどギャンブルと変わらないレベルでしょう。その作品からは作家の血も汗も涙も感じ取ることは決してないから。以上
The work that came out as a result of chance is not art, they are work based on a fluke, and one time it may be called art. In addition, it can be asserted that multiple works produced by the process are just appendices, not art. If we were in a similar situation they would have been abandoned without opening them publicly. It is unnecessary level which is called an artwork, it is not intended to be created by artist will. We had so many such artworks. Think about it. That's all.
Good day KM

We will suspend a kind of free stuffs and save our time. Free SNS bring lots of fake information. Its wasting time in limited life. They mostly tend to sell your information. There may be no free lunch also in the internet world.
Let it do some official source, newspaper, media, public officials, local cities, company, or interest party to create news and promotion for art and artists, which is back to traditional style and trustworth.

In science, a center of gravity is a point or place where an object can be balanced. The City of Shoreline’s first exhibition devoted to the creation of a permanent collection strives to create a balance of media and artistic backgrounds in keeping with a 21st century city with rapidly changing demographics. The exhibition opens Saturday, June 9, from 5:00 pm -7:30pm, at Shoreline City Hall, 17500 Midvale Ave N, Shoreline, 98133; on the third and fourth floors with artists in attendance. Regular gallery hours will be 9:00-5:00 M-F and by appointment on weekends until September 17, 2018, when unsold work will be returned. The City plans to spend up to $10,000 on the artwork to begin its permanent indoor collection, complementing its 26 permanent outdoor sculptures, and will announce its selections in July.
From over 105 artist submissions and more than 500 artworks, jurors David Francis and Jason Huff (Seattle Arts and Culture) selected a final group of 30 (45 artworks) that each explore contemporary art as a balancing of objectives and a blending of disciplinary focus. Many of the artists have backgrounds in other fields and experiences in other countries, reflecting a global village of contemporary art. As Huff writes in his juror’s statement, “Given the city's commitment to equity and inclusion, it was important to make sure that the artists whose works are part of this selection reflected diversity of people and communities that make up Shoreline.” Themes vary from nature, to history, identity, and the design of spatial representation.
