Ann Arbor State Street Art Fair

Posted by Joseph E Mongan on April 21, 2018 at 8:56am 0 Comments

Hello All

I have been accepted to this show. I have never shown at this event. I am trying to find current reviews from artist who have. Everything I find is years old. I am feeling this is not a very good show from a selling standpoint. Seems like most complain about low sales. Just wondering if anyone would like to help me decide.

Apollo Beach—they call it the Manatee Art Festival—I call it toast

Posted by Nels johnson on April 18, 2018 at 11:20am 1 Comment

I have done it for more than 10 years and could usually grind out $1500-$2000 and I slept in my own bed.…

Houston Bayou Art Show—Finally, something good to talk about

Posted by Nels johnson on April 17, 2018 at 2:06pm 4 Comments

This Show was on the last full weekend in March.

They finally got their act together and limited the show to 300 artists. That meant nobody was stuck on an outer loop where half the attendees never walked.

We had excellent cool weather, decent crowds, about 15000 total.

Most artists made 6-10x their booth fees.

This is a three day show with no evening hours.

You can setup either on Wed. Or Thursday before the show.

At teardown, you can scrum with the…
