Can anyone give me any advice on new print racks that I need to buy? I've been using the cheap wooden ones for six years now, two of which broke this season. I need ones that have a relatively deep gusset or bottom area to hold a fair amount of prints. I need ones to fit both 12 x 16 and 18 x 24 prints. I was next to another photographer at a show this weekend, and she had the Jack Richeson black canvas medium print racks, that looked nice enough and were much deeper than mine, which was a…Continue
I attended this art fair for the first time this past weekend, September 16-17, 2017. The traffic was excellent on Saturday and I did really well in terms of sales. Traffic and sales were down for me on Sunday but all in all a good show...a little over $1000 for the weekend. Met many nice people and was set up next to a photographer from Aurora, IL. Dave Barnes and his wife Donna are very nice and made the weekend more fun. I bought a photograph on canvas from Dave...picture of four…Continue

This is a one day show the Sunday before Labor Day from 10-5:00. I did this show last year and had almost $1100 in sales; did the show again this year and had almost $1000 in sales. The show had only 30 vendors so sales of this magnitude seems very good to me. Maybe my art fits well with the clientele. I recommend this venue for other artists in the area. The booth fee is only $65 if entry is early. The show is also juried.

Weather was great for this fair. Fairly steady crowd but not a huge number of lookers/buyers. For me, a woodturner, the show was disappointing considering the distance traveled and the $300 set up fee. I did about $260-280 in sales each day. The one highlight was that I won a 2nd place ribbon and $150. This was a first for me.
I attended three Chicago area shows this season...an experiment. Given the set up fees and amount of sales among the shows, I will not likely risk…Continue

This is terrific information, and not just for artists! Copy and paste anywhere you think it will be seen by those impacted by the storm. (Note: My home and property and family are all safe, unaffected by the storm.)
1. File with FEMA and get your FEMA number ASAP! You will need it for everything. Download the FEMA app now. They now prefer that you register online rather than the phone.
2. File a claim with BOTH your homeowner's and flood insurance. Even…

On Friday I got an email from St. Stephen's Church that puts on the St. Stephen's Art Show in Miami calling for help in boarding up the church to get ready for Hurricane Irma. For some reason this really hit me since I obviously couldn't do anything from Minnesota but I really wished I could help all the artists that are going to be or have already been effected by the terrible hurricanes this year. I had planned to donate to the artist relief funds but when I thought about how I was going…Continue
