Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
I just got accepted to the Asheville show in May. They have a $475 booth fee. Does anyone have any feedback about how much money/sales are often made there, and whether I should gamble to rent a booth, get a hotel, and drive from Nashville to Asheville with my family to attend? I am an impressionist oil painter.fullsizeoutput_3575.jpeg
Above is a picture of my booth so far.... I have large work.
Thanks for any input!
I did Artclectic last year. It was my best show! After doing 11 outdoor shows last year this one was a breeze. They help you set up everything even goes as far as building shelf's for your display. No booth fee for 30% commission and feeding you great food was a no brainer. They are a very Art loving school and committed to the local artist. My understanding is for me as a jeweler I will only get in once.
Any chance, Kymberlee, you applied to the American Artisan Festival in June in Nashville? to my mind worth checking out.
I applied -- I was there last year. Great show, until the bottom dropped out on Sunday!
I haven't done a show in Asheville but I want to see the Mansion! LOL I like to go places I haven't seen sometimes. What IS the best show in ASHEVILLE?
I'd like to know, too! Very cool town, with lots of beer!
