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

Prizewinners at Madison and Cherry Creek 2018

July brings the BIG shows and if you're not doing an art fair this month (especially if you live in the heart of the country) you probably aren't too serious about this business. (Just my opinion).
