"I focus on helping artists get into top rated shows but that doesn't mean the tips I give won't apply to you. Set it up just the way it looks like when you're set up at a show. Then remove 25% to 50% of the items closest together. You…"

"My eyes go to the black fabric background. It may be appropriate for indoor shows but I feel there are too many wrinkles, background especially and tables. But you will probably find that it works well for indoor shows. Larry Berman"

Larry Berman replied to Jane Petersen's discussion Professional Booth Shot
"Your picture looks really pretty but it's not a booth at an outdoor show, which requires the jurors seeing a white canopy. You can use it for indoor shows but the majority of shows are outdoors. Read my article and look at the pictures. It…"

I scored a "1" at the Krasl Jury

Posted on March 1, 2018 at 7:00pm 89 Comments

Quite a few artists posted about their Krasl jury scores on some of the Facebook art show forums. I even received two phone calls from artists asking me to check to see if something was wrong with their images.

So many artists posted about receiving one or even two of the lowest possible score of a "1" out of "7" that it makes me wonder if the people doing the jurying knows what that means, or what instructions were given by the director.

Years ago I was interviewing a show…

Every girl wants a pink convertible

Posted on December 14, 2017 at 4:54pm 3 Comments

Happy Holidays everyone

Doesn't every girl want a pink convertible? Originally we were going to do a holiday picture with a sleigh large enough for the pups to sit in. That concept will now be put on hold until next year. We came across a pink mini cooper convertible and that became the new holiday picture. The car is 24x36 inches by about 20 inches tall. Xena is dominant in the picture with Elvis taking the back seat.…

Help Getting Accepted into Art Shows - Part 4



No, I haven't gone over to the dark side and still recommend using a real camera to photograph your artwork or booth for jurying. But I have been investigating getting better quality pictures from my iphone camera. And by better quality, I don't mean improved composition. I mean technically improved pictures with less blurriness (sharper) and better exposure.



My next article consists of tips on how to take better pictures with…

Thanks for these tips, Larry. I did some more streamlining of it last night and will use this info too. Keeping it simple and understandable is important.
