Art fairs can be a great way for you to greet potential customers and to show off your work. Not all of these shows are the same, however.

I did very well this year, great sales both Saturday and…

Shows that charge a commission really should (NEED TO) advertise their shows aggressively – thus making them more money from commissions on sales at their events.

I’ve done some shows where there are large billboards on the highway near the show that advertise the upcoming show – excellent – it…

As a result, the enriching experience of an art event is ruined for those who want to get the…
