"Is there a general guideline as to what determines a high end show (booth fee, # of artists, etc.?) I have seen a few booths with notecards, and always on a spinner rack. I do agree and like your points mentioned though. I have noticed the…"

"Thanks for asking this question, Susan.  I'm in a similar situation, where I do wildlife art in two different mediums, have done all smaller shows, and sell note cards, greeting cards, calendars, and prints as well as original…"

"As they are both drawing mediums, I would think they would both fall under the "Graphics and drawing category"  That shouldn't be an issue. If people can buy a card, and yes even frame them, your original work could be passed…"

I appreciate all the valuable information that is posted on this site, some of it is intimidating but all of it is educational to a non professional newbie like myself so thank you in advance for your input!
