|Local businesses may clear out an office for your show|
Libraries - Most libraries regularly display community art, and with steady local traffic and and out, there will be lots of eyeballs on your work. Depending on where you live, there may be multiple branches you can check out, and most will let you put your work up for a month. Usually the library will have someone on staff who is in charge of the installations, so find that person and make your pitch. Quite often you'll have an advantage if the subject of your art is local landmarks. Downsides?Here again you will most likely need to do a lot of publicity on your own, and libraries usually don't do receptions; if they do they will not allow alcohol.
|Cafes are ideal settings for art shows|
|Gallery receptions, like this one at Gallery Underground,|
attract lots of art lovers to your opening
