Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Hi, everyone - I am a palette-knife painter, making large, bright pieces with a heavy impasto.
My dad lives in Tubac, AZ, and for the past couple years, I've gone to visit him, and combined that with shows and a sponsored plein-air painting trip.
I did the Tubac show last year and did OK. Not great, not terrible. Let's say I did OK for a two-day show, but it was a four-day show, and there were looooong stretches of no action.

Artegon, Orlando, FL. just opened this week, and I went by today to check it out.
for those of you unfamiliar with it, here is it in a nutshell. Old Mall that has been redone with a permanent art fair in the center. Extremely reasonable rates, but you have to do mall hours, 7 days a week.

But I'm trying to make my indoor booth look a little better.
I'm wondering if I should invest in a new indoor booth with pipe and drape (considering Innovative Systems and Georgia Expo -- any recommendations?) or simply get the extension pieces to use a trimline indoors (sans rooftop)?
Either way, I'm buying a new outside tent, the TrimLine.
