Could use your input: Art City in Austin or Mainsail in St. Pete

Started Jan 15, 2013 0 Replies

I have to make a decision between doing Art City Austin and Mainsail in St. Pete. Both are far drives, with Austin much further. Being a western Music City, I think my work would go over really well…Continue

Banners of your artwork as part of your display

Started this discussion. Last reply by Lori Biwer-Stewart Aug 27, 2012. 18 Replies

I've seen some artists at artshows hang what look like vinyl banners in their tent to showcase their artwork. Where do you make them? I've looked at Kinkos but don't like what I see. Any suggestions…Continue

"Peter, the reason I chimed in about the dark booth is the dark walls in the photo you posted, that's all."

"No, I have not had a dark booth, I have posters that tell my story, but you can not have those in your jury shots. But this is a great point you have brought up."

"I wondered about the dark sides too.  Our tent is white and I am not sure I'd like a dark one on dark days.  It seems it would take much more lighting to keep a booth with black walls light and bright."

Judy Christian replied to Peter Geiger's discussion New booth shot would like some input
"I think that it looks fine but I am no expert on booth shots. Have you ever had a dark booth? I point this out because if you are not used to it, you may not like it, especially on a dark or rainy day. I tried darkening mine- only the shelves- and…"

What's the best art/craft show in Nashville?

Posted on October 5, 2010 at 9:20am 1 Comment

I've seen a few listed: TACA has one in spring and fall, and there's the American Artisan one. Can someone share their experiences with these? It's at least an 8 hour drive for me and I'd love to get an idea for which one I should shoot for.

Thanks.

Have any experience with e-commerce art sites?

I was just checking out www.artfulhome.com. It's a juried application, if you're accepted they want $300 for membership, and take 50 percent of the sale. They don't promise you that you'll be in their catalogue, which is mailed to 1.5 million households, but they say they spend a lot on marketing the work and pushing out emails. I'm leery. Anybody ever try any of these art websites and have feedback they can share?

Thanks. Pete
