Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
8 hours after break down I'm still scratching my head on this show patrons hard to call them customers because buying was less then stellar.They seemed interested at times but most times just casually walking through the park . I told my neighbor they seem to be talking about art they just weren't buying art . It seemed some had good show kudos to you but alot of artists I talked to said sales were way down .My first sale avg time was 3 hours after opening each day I could have slept in…
Hi all - What a great group! I'm in the DC/Baltimore area and just started selling at fairs last year - all indoors. Now that I'm looking for shows this year I'm seeing how many great shows I'm missing out on because I don't have a tent! So I am looking to buy a used 10x10 white pop up tent.
If you have one - please email me at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
I would like to make my own table coverings for my art fair booth. i use the folding rectangle tables that extend to a height of 29" and are easy to carry. i currently use a big piece of fabric on them and the horrible pleated table skirts you clip on. i'd love to make my own that slip on over the entire table as one piece. i've seen other people with them, but no one has been willing or able to share how they were made or share any plans or patterns.
does anyone here know…
I recently posted this article on my site at www.ArtsyShark.com, and am getting a lot of comments from artists:
It shares my own experience with overburdening myself with fairs and festivals. I ended up doing something I've never done before.
Naturally, I thought of this community as…
I'm new to AFI, but not to the arts community.
I live in Chicago and have been housing arts for over 10 years. During show season, I have accommodated up to 6 guests in a 3bdrm condo. I'm going to list in the AFI classifieds.
I'd like some input on what YOU would be looking for in terms of temporary housing during a show. Type of accommodations? Price? Ammenities that are important? Thanks for your help. I hope to meet some of you…
