Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
This is our first full year doing art fairs. Being new to this, our philosophy has been to take things as they come and try to learn from our experiences. Ann Arbor was our ninth show of the year. After the previous eight it was an easy call as to whether or not we wanted to come back. It was equally apparent what lessons we could take away from those experiences. Not so with Ann Arbor. I would like to relate what happened and ask those that have done the Ann Arbor shows if they can…Continue

Since Art Fair Insiders allows blog posts, I thought I'd clog up the bandwidth with a few posts.
About me. Ehhhh........ not much actually.
Avid obsessed photographer. I have a day job. I have all the amenities (mortgage, bills, family, dog, ad nausem).
And I've just started into the Art Fair market this year. Have only made a few local artsy-craftsy shows and flea markets (don't ask!) and…Continue

We were excited to be called off the wait list for this show. Since it was going to be a long drive, we decided to pair it with a show over the 4th of July weekend in South Haven, Michigan and spend the time in between in Ann Arbor visiting family and friends mixed with some photo work in Detroit. It was a great plan.
Everything was going great until we hit the Ohio border. The expressway around Cincinnati and Dayton has been under construction for the 10 years we have lived in…Continue
So, I’m sure that’s not what the Choochokam Arts Foundation told the artists, they had varied explanations but it just comes down to the fact that this organization that has long lacked for planning skills, failed once again and this time the failure was big enough to cause a cancellation of an event that’s been running for 39 years, cancelling it when it was too late for artists to apply and make other plans for…Continue
Just a short review of the last show I did in Naperville, Illinois. It was the only show I had scheduled for this month and since I had done well at Old Town I thought that heading back to the Chicago area would be more of the same. That's the thing about this business.....it takes you high and then it BAM...slaps you right in the face. Ha!
Naperville Woman's Club Art Fair is located in Naperville Settlement, a re-enactment of a early mid-west village with all the "feels".…Continue
There are two summer Art Fair Jackson Hole shows. One is in July and the other is in August (8/12-14/2016). Both are produced by the Art Association of Jackson Hole, WY. This review is for the July 8-10, 2016 show, but I would expect similar data for the August show. This show was established in 1965 and this year was its 50th anniversary.
