One may think that when you have finished a painting your work is done. This may be true in some cases, but oftentimes the artist also is required to promote his or her work in order to sell the product (see more HERE). Garé did not enjoy this side of her professional career (in fact, she loathed it), but she surely realized that her occasional presence at art shows and exhibitions would have a positive impact on her continuing status and interest among potential buyers. So she attended numerous gatherings over the years. Here are a very few examples (you can see more HERE) cut from various newspaper articles.
