"When I click on view archives, it tells me me I don't have anything archived. Does it wait until the show is over to archive or is there something I need to do?"

Does Zapp archive my applications?

2015 is the first year that I have applied to any show that uses Zapp. Thanks to the invaluable information everyone has shared on this this site, especially Larry Berman, I have successfully been invited to the shows so far (knock on wood). My question is this. Does Zapp archive your applications to each show or will I need to remember which jury pics I used for each show? How long do they keep the apps? I have 8 images and I am trying them in different configurations to see which work. Some…See More

Leslie Turner replied to Mary E. May's discussion Newbie Booth Critique Needed, Please!
"You need more levels. Get some small risers in different heights to set some of your busts on. The blue is okay, but the way it stops on the tabletop is jarring. A banner with blue in it would pull the blue up. You have a great start, just keep…"

"I was in retail at one time and what we learned is if the client has to bend over at all they will NOT buy. Why? Some people can't see it if it is not up higher and they walk away. If you bend over to look at something at an art show 100 times…"

Welcome to Art Fair Insiders, Mary.  I'm pleased to see you here and look forward to having you as part of our community.

When you have a chance, please add a photo of yourself and stop by the "Discussions" area to introduce yourself to the rest of us. We all look forward to your participation here. Also, visit the "member map" and add your location. We have a lot to offer one another, experienced and newbie alike. Let's make this a dynamic site!

Many topics have already been discussed here before you joined us. You might like to try a search of your topic before you post your question. Just put your topic, canopy tents, jurying fees, Ann Arbor Art Fair, etc, into the search bar at the top of the right side of the page. You might be surprised that someone has already asked your question.

We also ask that all new members take a few moments of their time to read the code of conduct. You will find it at http://www.artfairinsiders.com/page/code-of-conduct. There are a few guidelines that all members will need to follow because , as in any social community, we all need to work together.

Best wishes, Connie Mettler

p.s. The best way to make this system easy to use is to click on the "Follow-Email me" link at the bottom of each Forum discussion that interests you. That way the system will email you automatically whenever anyone responds. It's a great time-saver.
