TIP OF THE DAY: Discouraged? Are you the only one?

Thanks to Hal Moran for his perspective on earning a living in the art fair business ... do you agree with him?

3 Ways to Thrive in the Art Fair Business (reprise)

Posted by Connie Mettler on November 16, 2018 at 1:09pm 0 Comments

Look what I found in our archives -- an excellent article from artist Ginny Herzog from March, 2009. You remember 2009 ... scary days for our country and art fairs.

Ginny has now been doing shows for over 30 years and continues to be enthused about the life style and her…

Old but New

Posted by Rick Plummer on November 12, 2018 at 7:11pm 10 Comments

Reading through the various posts, it seems that Reviews of Shows are a sought commodity. Thus, I thought I'd do a little blog-journelling, as I am getting ready to jump into the Art Fair scene for the first time.

The Great Gulf Coast Art Festival—Pensacola, Florida

Posted by Nels johnson on November 10, 2018 at 11:30am 3 Comments

In my humble opinion this is the best fall show to do in Florida, nobody else compares.

Also Pensacola is a very cool town to hang out at.

Lots of good seafood bars and restaurants (more about them later), easy traffic, cheap lodgings, a mellow setup and a great wholesale seafood outlet to stock up on Monday morning.

Plus, most artists…

LOOKING FOR ART PARTNER AND ACCOMPLICE!!!!

Posted by Ly Montells on November 10, 2018 at 1:30am 0 Comments

I am looking for a female artist (45+) who wants to do art fairs around the country. Someone who feels that an "accomplice" and partner could make it easier and a lot more fun than doing it alone.

I've been doing the Art Fair circuit for only 9 months and after 35 years of doing TV around the world I am now hooked on the lifestyle of selling my art around this country. I do look at couples (made lots of great friends) doing the shows, and I confess.. I am envious. Alone is…
