Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
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

We were juried in, and are getting ready for the festival, but wonder who else will be there? If you have done the show before are there any great tips to share? Value your feedback! And if you have done the show, any recommendations for places to lodge for the weekend?

The Great Lakes Art fair is held April 10-11-12 INSIDE of a big clean convention hall called the Suburban Collection Showplace in this Detroit suburb. I've always felt that the "idea" of this art fair is a good one. It is held in a big open indoors space in the early spring when weather is a BIG factor, and at a time when all those pesky summer booth fees come due. Us Midwest artists can use a little cash after a long cold winter.
The art fair is run by the convention center itself,…Continue
