Warning - Artist scam to watch out for

Posted by Nadine booth on March 16, 2018 at 8:50pm 0 Comments

I recently was accepted to the Mission Federal Artwalk in San Diego.  A few days ago, I receive a call from someone saying I should call them regarding the Mission Federal Art show.  The voice mail was very hard to understand due to their accent and fuzzy line. 

So I called today and ask for Sarah Jackson.  After talking to a rude guy insisting I know what the voice message was, I get transferred to Sarah.  I'm placed on hold... she comes on... line fuzzy with static.  I commented on…

any reviews for Fine art fine wine Orchard Lake, MI

I'm looking for anyone who may have done this show last year who would be willing to share their experience. There is only one review that I could find on the art show review site, and since the show is new, I'm a bit nervous about doing it this year, especially since it is a bit expensive. This is the show in June, not the July one. Any thoughts?

Since we make our living selling art, and we can't make it through the winter without some sales, Marcia and I have been traveling to Florida every winter to exhibit and to reinforce the bank account. OK... it's not only the bank account, it's also a nice perk to get out of the cold and the snow. 

Some artists from the Midwest, who I…
