Safety and Security at Art Fairs

This past weekend Trenton, New Jersey, hosted "Art All Night", intended to bring the community together. In the midst of it a gunfire broke out.

The festival typically draws more than 30,000 visitors to view work from more than 1,500 artists as well as exhibitions of glass blowing and woodwork, The Trentonian reported on its website. About 50 bands also play on three…

Thanks to EVERY one

Thanks to everyone that has ever posted to this sight.  I have learned so much from this site.  If I didn't ask the question, then someone else did and my answer was right in front of me.  I have come a long way from crafting to artist.  I got my confidence right here, reading about everything one needed to know to move on and move up.  Thank you to those who donated and those who donated prizes.  I was a recipient of a beautiful piece of art.  Thank you Joel!  I may not post a lot but I do…


It was OK in OKC, The Paseo Arts Festival

First time at this show. People were very engaged, enthusiastic and appreciative of the art and artists. They asked meaningful questions and showed a lot of interest. That interest translated into sales. Although some sales were out of the bin (they chose the largest of my matted pieces) many sales came off of the walls! It has been a long time since I was at a show that paid off as this one did.

It should be noted that for many years, there has been a "scab" show adjacent to this…


Kalamazoo Institute of Art Fair—A Pretty Location, But Sales Were Pretty Low

The KIA art Fair was last weekend.  Artists setup early on Friday morn and the Fair is from 3pm-8pm that day.

Then on Saturday it runs from 9-5. No Sunday show.

It is setup in a beautiful downtown park, Bronson Park. Artists have plenty of room around and in the rear of their booths.

Setup and teardown are pretty mellow.  You do…
