ArtFest Fort Myers Delivers

Posted by John Leben on February 8, 2016 at 11:00am 0 Comments

The last time I did this show was in 2012 and I made a whopping $1200 in sales. This year I did much, much better. The committee did a GRrEAT job of bringing the crowds out.

This phrase pops up over and over and is used specifically in the rules for photographers, not just for other artists in other categories. It seems to put someone without a $4000 printer at something of a disadvantage. As an alternative, how is a photographer to 'directly supervise' the printer, who…

We have done this show last 3 yrs. Smaller solid show for us. Customers come to buy. We sell lapidary jewelry priced 30-300. It is well managed . Pull up to load..unload. Not a lot of frills but we look forward to it. They jury right away so you can get on with life. I believe they balance media. Quality artists. Hope to see you there...
