"I'm a printmaker. I did it a couple Decembers ago. Not worth it. $2500 plus whatever other expenses is way too much. But if you're accustomd to making, I,don't know, $7500+ at shows maybe this is the one for you."

I’m in to the OOAK show as an emerging artist and wonder if any other painters have done the show recently? With such a high booth fee I’m wondering if it is worth the risk. I have read the reviews but am hoping there may be more artists willing to add to the discussion. Thanks in advance!

I’ve posted here and there but realize I never introduced myself—sorry for that.I’ve been a teacher of writing, a freelance writer, and a graphic and web designer. In 2010, I realized that a decade of helping other artists and writers succeed online had been rewarding, but I was done. So I became a late-blooming artist instead.After about 5 years of DIY art school (every online course imaginable), I finally felt ready to find my own voice and techniques and that’s pretty much been my whole…See More

"Nuts. I’m after extenders for the 5 Panels I have at the 30-inch width. If I acquire more at the 38 inch size (likely getting 4 of these in Jan 18), I might be interested if you are willing to split them up. I’m up in NJ, but my daughter…"
