I am Ray Giddens, a welded metal sculptor from Simpsonville, SC. I have been making sculptures for almost 3 years now, and during this time I have been struggling to make a decent booth shot for art fairs. Here is my latest effort. Do please
I am posting this picture of my booth that I took at the Fort Benton "Art on the Levee" show last month. This is not meant to my booth shot for Zapp applications, but I thought I'd post it before I do my new booth shots in order to get your input and
I have never asked for a booth review on here and decided maybe I should. I am presently living in Charlotte, NC, and Corning, NY; about half my time in each. Most of the shows I do are in NC, SC, TN, GA, MD, PA, WV, and NY.
I have attached a photo,
Table coverings are a frequent topic and I thought I would share how I make mine. I cannot express how few sewing skills I have. I also think if you do most of the prep work, you could take it to an alterations person and get the single seam made for
Just joined this community. What a incredible wealth of information can be found here! Amazing! I just finished my first 2 events ever and was somewhat disappointed with the results. With what I've read here I have some specific ideas of what I might
I have my own ideas on how to build my tent weights, but my question is is it better to have the weights hanging and attached (bungee corded) to the legs or to have the weights sitting on the ground? I really value the experience in this group and I
I have a tendency, when I am setting up my booth, to group paintings into arrangements that I would like on my own walls at home. My dream, of course, is that someone comes in and buys the whole grouping, but beyond that, I tend to group pieces toget
I am getting ready to take my EZup tent and mesh walls to set it up to take a booth photo at a local photo studio (Procam). I recently purchased the mesh walls and also purchased the french door with the rear entry. I am wondering when doing the boot
I cannot thank everyone enough for all that I have learned here. I am trying to step up my game....I am including the early booth layout for giggles. I would love to hear any constructive feedback on my current booth. Is it true th
I just finished building my display panels and wanted to do a pre-setup of my booth before my first art fair in 2 weeks. I admit it took a bit longer than I imagined it would and of course even though we are in a huge drought here in Southern Califor
I have had a rough early-application season so far, getting rejected by lots of shows, including ones that I've gotten into repeatedly. I have new work that I love, and which is selling really well, and is different - and so I have been mystified.
I applied to La Quinta 2 years in a row. Last year they told me I was rejected. It seems my art was great, it was my booth. I was 2 points from being accepted, the artist peers said my booth was not great (grids instead of panels) So I got Pro Pan
Larry Berman finished working on my "museum booth" photo this weekend. This ends the saga of the "museum booth" for shows focusing on aesthetics and my "inventory booth" for shows focusing on artists that generate tax revenue for their communities an
I set up my tent in my backyard after a local show this weekend. After I took the front view, I noted that the side paintings were difficult to see, so I took the shots of right and left sides. I'd tried angling the side panels but that threw off the
I have worked on my booth shot all weekend following Larrys advice. I have looked at it so long I'm going cross eyed. I am wanting to apply to a show and the deadline is tomorrow at midnight. Please let me know if this looks god enough to submit.
