"We have done shows that are "under cover", but not a strictly "indoor" show and tents were allowed. We were just in a show this weekend that was held in an old cottonseed mill. It can be closed up and locked for security and…"

"In my experience, the only people who care about the consistency of the work are the jurors. Obviously with a poor layout you can turn people away from your images if you do something like putting a bright vibrant image next to a dark moody one,…"

"My advice is to use 30 inch wide panels as those will give you the most flexibility on indoor set-ups. Propanels has adjustable bars to help stabilize the walls when outdoors. They can be used indoors as well and an extra bar across the front will…"

"Thanks for the tip John.  I don't expect to make millions off this show, just enough to get my feet wet.  I figure why blow $250-500 on a full blown art fair with no experience.  Might as well buy the '92 Camry before the…"

John P Houle replied to Kirk Bergman's discussion Questions about indoor setups
"First off, I would not do small shows . If they are unjuried , you get mixed with crap and resale and people will devalue your work and look for price alone . Second, I would suggest  frame canopy either 8x 10 or 10 x 10 . What I mean by…"

Terri Einer replied to Kirk Bergman's discussion Questions about indoor setups
"Most indoor shows do not allow tents to be set up.  If you decide to purchase the Flourish mesh walls, which are very nice, they do have an indoor set-up with sta-bars that can be used with their tent at a later date.  I started with…"
