Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Just read this article on Art Biz Coach which is the website of Alyson Stanfield regarding her experience at the Portland Arts Festival Conference sponsored by Zapp. I am posting it with her permission.
The full text of her article can be seen at:
It is a good basic primer on what juries see and what they shouldn't see as well. I know there has been a lot of discussion on this topic...I'm just pass'n it on!
By the way, the first image in the article features a double wide display at an indoor venue. I've read on many a show prospectus that most shows/juries, especially for outdoor shows, only want to see a single size booth displayed in an outdoor setting.
