I was looking forward to this show. Coming in from MA, I'd planned to take a brief vacation taking in a few of Chicago's museums and this show was on the right weekend to do so. The event was held Friday, August 22nd (evening hours, art show only open from 4-8 pm with performances to 10), Saturday, 8/23 (10-10, with the art show going to 6) and Sunday, 8/24 (10-5). About half of the 200 or so exhibitors are able to participate on Friday (for a small increase in booth fee). I only exhibited…Continue

Get to know the artist series by Orange Twig on up and coming coastal artist Alexandra Nicole Newton.
Several years ago, I wrote a tutorial for Step by Step Wire Magazine on how to make a cat out of wire that can be worn as a pendant, earrings, or what have you. I was told by Denice Peck, the editor, that I would still own the rights and I have no problem with her at all. I did, however, find where someone was directly copying my pattern, selling the cat online with out so much as a mention of me, the author.
I sent this person two e-mails. I told her I was glad she could use my…Continue
Artist to Artist:
There are different levels of artists at every show. The goal for all of us is that we can't loose money and we must make enough money the cover bills and enjoy life. Each one of us has different amount of money that need to reach each month or year.
Each artist has is own style. Each artists had try different things to become successful.
I want to reintroduce myself:

First let me say, I have never done a Chicago show, so I have nothing to compare it to and beyond that Saturday was a rain out......but it certainly was not what I expected. After having a good solid show at Lexington the week before I headed to Chicago to hit the big leagues. Port Clinton is a huge show, over three hundred artists and spread out all over Highland Park in a- great for some, not so great for others, configuration.
I was by the train station at the dead end of the show…Continue
I guess this is a little belated since I've already signed up for these shows, but has anyone done
Zona Rosa in Missouri,
Art in the park, garden city, Kansas
Georgetown Art and Wine, Georgetown, TX
Art in the Park, Dallas
Any info would be great.
Odd question, but something we have been pondering more and more recently. Do you feel that shows that use services like zapplication offer a higher end experience, higher proportion of buyers, larger crowds? We have done three shows that are zapplication, and initially i believed the statement that the show was higher end, brought large amounts of buyers, but the last one or two were not so much so. While they were lovely events, well organized, and drew nice crowds, the ratio of crowd to…Continue
This was a first time show for me. I had heard of it for the last several years and thought incorrectly it was a continuation of the Chautauqua of the Arts shows held in Columbus for several years. No connection as I found out later, this is a fifth year show started by a local photographer. The previous 4 years this has been a one day show, and this was the first year for it to go two days.
Set up is a little rough on this one, starting on Saturday morning at 6:00 AM. Things…Continue
This past weekend Lu and I did the Hottest show that we have done in years. The show had setup on Friday morning with a Preview that night. The people came out and that was a surprize to most of the artist. And again on Saturday they came out again. And on Sunday there were even more people out and about.
The show I am talking about was the Midwest Salute to the Arts in Fairview Heights, IL.
The tempeture was 97 on Friday, 98 on Saturday and 99 on Sunday with the heat index…Continue

For those not familiar Piedmont Park in Atlanta is an amazing park that attracts the movers and shakers and everyone else in the city. There is an event almost every weekend here. Three of the weeks hosts art shows. Dogwood, Atlanta Arts Fest and Piedmont Park Arts Festival. Dogwood is probably the best well known and attracts a huge crowd from the surrounding metro Atlanta area and focuses on the music and other attractions. Atlanta Arts Festival is a fine art festival that attracts mainly…Continue
