I have a question that at least some of you have probably had to deal with. My primary work has been on travertine--coasters, trivets, and plaques. I also do handmade cards that I sell in sets.
I am going to be trying my hand at a new art form for me. This week I will be having my first tutorial in encaustic art. If, and that is a BIG IF, I am any good at it I want to also have my encaustic art in my booth at shows. My dilemma is this ... I am in the middle of applying to shows for the fall. What happens if I decide I am actually good enough to sell the encaustic art, but it was not part of my application for the fall shows? If I am approved for shows, is it considered tacky to ask about amending my app to include the encaustic? Or, do I have to wait till I submit apps for the spring of 2016 before I get to try my hand at selling it?
I want to go about it the right way. I suppose waiting till next year is not a "bad" thing. It would give me more time to develop my technique but seeing how I am an impatient person, I know that I'd want it at my fall shows if I am any good at it.
Thanks for any help!
