I have been in New York for about a year and a half now, and have had the pleasure of meeting some great people and even having the chance to exhibit my work at Webster Hall last winter for an Art Exhibit. Since then, it would seem that the good jobs are few and far between, and freelance work has been hard to come by. As the saying goes "It's feast or famine" seems to hold some truth. I have seen many successful artists in publications and online who are exhibiting their works, going to gallery's, and even some who have a studio set up separate from their living quarters. What I am trying desperately to figure out is how to make that jump? Are there groups, or networks that people belong to in order to find these opportunities? Or is it simply a mixture of hard work and luck?
