Show Up and Make Your Mark: A Personal Approach for Artists

By Sergio Gomez

You've probably heard me say, "You have to show up to be remembered," and I still stand by that statement. But today, let's delve deeper into what it means to show up as an artist. It's not just about making videos or creating content for the masses. Sometimes, showing up can take a quieter, more personal approach.

Embrace the Art of Gratitude

One way to show up is by expressing gratitude. Have you ever considered the impact of a simple thank-you note? Taking the time to write a heartfelt message to a collector or curator can make all the difference in your art career. It shows that you appreciate their support and value their contribution to your artistic journey. So why not pick up a pen and let them know how much their presence means to you?

Reconnect and Rekindle

Another powerful way to show up is by reaching out to people you haven't connected with in a while. Life gets busy, and it's easy to lose touch, but sometimes a small gesture can reignite a meaningful relationship. Send a text message or a direct message to someone who has been on your mind. Share your latest artistic endeavors or simply let them know that you value their presence in your life. You'll be amazed at the renewed connections and potential collaborations that can emerge from such moments.

The Importance of the Individual

While it's crucial to engage with your audience, let's not underestimate the impact of showing up for that one important person. Is there someone quietly behind the scenes who has supported you throughout your artistic journey? Perhaps it's a mentor, a fellow artist, or a friend who has always believed in your talent. Make an effort to show up for them in your own unique way. Your genuine appreciation and connection can foster a deeper bond and open doors to new opportunities.

Your Personal Touch Matters

Remember, it's not always about grand gestures or being in the spotlight. It's the genuine moments of connection that truly make a difference in your art career. Show up in ways that resonate with you, in ways that reflect your personal style and values. Your authenticity will shine through and leave a lasting impression on those you interact with.

Show Up Today, Create Tomorrow

So, my friends, let's make a pact. Let's commit to showing up, not just in the obvious ways but also in the quiet, personal moments that matter. Embrace the power of gratitude, reconnect with those who have been there for you, and don't underestimate the significance of showing up for that one important individual. Your personal touch, your genuine connections—they hold the key to advancing your art career.

As you navigate your artistic journey, remember that every interaction, no matter how small, has the potential to make a lasting impact. So, go ahead and show up today, and together, let's create a tomorrow filled with endless possibilities.
