Suellen Beck commented on Connie Mettler's blog post Your Chance to See an Art Fair Jury ONLINE!!
"This is great. I have always wanted to know what really goes on in the jury process. I will definitely be watching. It doesn't matter if you are new or old to the industry, I think this will be a learning experience for many artists."

"I agree that many of the shows around western Pa is not a really good market for me either. I do better in Ohio. Next month, I am trying a show in Mich. I am now looking at some east coast shows especially in the Md and Va areas. Any suggestions?"

"Welcome Suellen - I'm in Pittsburgh and create jewelry. I do some shows up in your area but most in Western Pa & Ohio. This is a great site for dialogue between artist on a variety of topics."

What are the best things about art fairs
Seeing old friends and customers.
Best show ever and why
Brandywine Festival of the Arts. When I first started doing the Brandywine show it was my best show and then my sales began to decline to the point that I opted not to participate in the 2009 show (which was a good thing). I had a lovely space and my sales were excellent.
Worst show ever and why
I can't remember.
