"Marc - Tent Rail Bars are a great find.  I've been zipping my stabilizer rails to the frame but for the $ this is a better solution.  Thanks for sharing."

Marc Rochkind replied to Richard L. Sherer's discussion THIS IS WHAT HAPPENS WHEN ARTISTS RUN OFF WITHOUT PAYING SALES TAX
"I have a Colorado state sales tax license and paying the state sales tax after a show is extremely easy to do online. But, they don't collect for so-called "home rule" cities, which includes every city where I'll be doing a show.…"

"Curious.....what did you use for the stabilizer bars running the length of the walls and what material for the grids, looks very interesting. Have you had this setup in the wind with the walls up?  Jay"

Marc Rochkind replied to Amy Ikenn's discussion Thinking about weights
"I know I'm a few years behind commenting, but according to a formula I found, a 2.5" square steel bar 30" long should weigh 53 lbs. Which is enough, probably. Did you actually determine that yours are 70 lbs.?"

"To expand on what Larry said: Where is the light? If you have on-camera flash, it's no wonder that the object looks flat. At the very least, invest in an off-camera flash, and experiment with the two flashes both firing (on-camera and…"

"Thanks... great post. Can you add a bit about your jury experience? ZAPP used? Percentage successes? Any useful feedback that helped with subsequent juries?"

Marc Rochkind replied to Marc Rochkind's discussion Please critique my booth and booth photo
"Interesting... I can, of course, open up the solid walls and hang mesh, for an airier and brighter booth. The stabilizer bars and grids are independent, so wouldn't need any changes. With my tent, the sides are hung from a cable, using clips. I…"

"Marc - I agree with Barry about the look/feel of silver walls and also the fact they block too much light.  I would also replace the white tablecloth with black.  I think your solution for hanging the art is brilliant.  You mentioned…"

"In my opinion the whole thing is too robotic. it has no charm or character. Maybe designed by "Data" of Startrek. I would most likely walk on by."

"Kevin-- Thanks for the tip. But, I already bought the 6 bars (upper and lower on 3 sides) and, with the velcro loop, they work perfectly. So, no need for an alternative. I'll be posting photos (on a fresh thread) in a few days, once I get all…"
