Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Hello Art Show Folks,
I have been through some major life changes recently. As a result, I have decided to make the plunge and venture out to the art fair world to sell my photography. I am working outside of the US right now but at the beginning of 2018, I will be back in the country and ready to take on art fairs full time. And, I will be doing it while traveling in my SUV and a travel trailer...at least that is the plan at the moment.
Are there others folks out there that are "location independent" and working art shows from their RV or travel trailer? I am interested in learning from those who have blazed this trail. What are the big considerations? Am I crazy for considering this? This information will be very helpful as I move forward to this new life in 2018.
Thanks in advance for your advice/comments!
I been learning along the way. Although I have not done this full time.. I have traveled in my van part time during the winter months in South Florida. Im still learning the shows and the circuit..
Began 3 years ago with a Toyota Sienna. I have now graduated to a ford transit medium roof.. Which I enjoy.. The trick is keeping it stealthy. I have had no regrets yet, as I have met many folks on the road and has been a total adventure.. Would love to meet other travelers & artist. My attitude is to do it while you can, enjoy life, take photos, learn, & well I know its only for a season or two as we discover our market.
Wishing you new discoveries and growth as a artist during this time of your life..
I have a tad head start before you, so I will be learning during the next couple years myself..
Thanks for sharing your journey with me. I have to say I am rather excited about the prospect of meeting the other artists and learning from them.
