the weekends show was successful and the sculpture was drawing a crowd interested in the work and witnessing the energy of my closing a major sale with the buyers by my side.

This was my first Howard Alan event. I had previously juried into at least two previous HA events which were cancelled by the organizers - Baltimore Inner Harbor and Georgetown... One killed by the Gran Prix and the other by apparent inability to reach agreements with the local govt...

Just got back from Birmingham AL and Magic City Art Connection show. Many of you know there were challenges this year for the show. About a month before the show the city told the show that they now, after years of never having too, pay for the use of the park, security for the show and other things that the show had not had to budget for in the past. So......
First the show. A three day show with set up on Thursday. It is set up in a very pretty park right in the middle…Continue
I recently returned from doing The Arlington Festival of The Arts in Arlington VA. It was the third time for this show and the second time for me. It is a small show, around 100 artists in a wonderful area on the streets of Arlington VA.
Set up is Saturday morning but it isn't a bad one. The streets are wide and I am able to show up around 7 am, drive to my booth and set up easy peasy. There are plenty of parking options. My booth is right infront of a Trader Joes…Continue
Easter messed up the springs show line up. It is no secret that my favorite small show is the spring time Festival on Ponce in my home town Atlanta. There are around 100 artists, a few kid things that are away from the artists, a handful of food trucks, no funnel cake and a small acoustical music stage. Oh and it is in a VERY wealthy area of Atlanta. I have done numerous reports on this show and I am sure everyone is tired of reading the basics for this show (if you aren't you can check out…Continue
We are getting started in this art fair world. This is our first year, and we have been hitting anything we can large and small. This was the first larger fair of the year for us. We have to stay somewhat local since we have small kids. We figured we would do a broad survey this year and then narrow down as we learned more.
The booth fees were really affordable - $100 for a single space if you are not from Cary, NC. No additional commission or donation requested. $15…Continue

This is not a “break the bank” type of show and I only do it for two reasons: 1. To support my church which produces it, 2. Get myself out into the local community which my other art shows do not do. I don’t go into this with high financial expectations; however sales of $700 and $500 the first two years were nice. The art show is held indoors and outdoors at UCC Parker Hilltop Church and at the historic Hilltop School across the road. A tractor and hay wagon provides a commute between the…Continue
I'm going to raise the Pinterest question again, just because I'm still not sure about what I'm supposed to be doing with it. I admit that when I have some free time, I like to look at my "boards" and those of others for inspiration but I'm really curious as to what you, my fellow artists, are doing there...are you promoting your own work? Does it help?
I understand that it's possible to lure browsers to your own web and Etsy sites, is that correct? Has this proven…Continue
