Hello Art Fair Family!
I would like to introduce myself, Betsy Bowers, a sculptor, from Sunny Sarasota, Florida. I'm new to the art fair world and am excited to get started. I've been creating art all my life, and finally have the right timing, and material combination to bring my flavor to the art scene. By day, my full time gig is designing T-shirts, and by night I play in clay :)
I do have a few questions for you... Any and all suggestions/comments are appreciated :) So far, I've had some great advise from people in the art fair scene, have read tons of great information on this site, and would love more insight.
For my first year, I would like to stick to the bigger Florida shows, and apply to what I can as a first year-er - I'm torn on where my art stands though, am I fine art, or fine craft?
If there are any shows you think my work would fit into in Florida, please let me know. Please check out my work at http;//betsybowers.com and let me know what your thoughts are.
I am quickly wrapping up a few pieces in order to take the infamous booth shot. I've read loads of great information on this site, and am excited to see how everything comes together. After seeing my pieces, please let me know if you have any booth suggestions... I've had a hard time finding more sculptural set up to inspire me.
I'll post my first attempt at a booth shot later this week and see if you have any advise. From what I've seen, you all give great advise and suggestions.
I'm happy to be here, and am excited to kick off my first show season in a few short months!
