Want a gallery show? First step, bathe…

From That Ain’t Art, artist Mat Gleason answers questions about the art world for their readers. His advice is practical. My favorite bit, not quoted below, is that if you want a gallery show, make great art.

Dear Mat,
I am an artist. I feel I am ready for a gallery show, but I have never exhibited before. When I talk to galleries they seem snobby. What can I do?
