The general gist was :
Don't be in a rush to develop your work.
Dont get het up about cold calling galleries - develop dialogue somehow
See where you fit in being attached to a gallery
Limit/target amount of competitions you go for that require entry fee,
be a good administrator re going for arts council grants etc.
Go to the private views, find the art you like, get on mailing lists be professional in the approach of networking; (ie factor in this as valuable time spent)
Live in your own film!
