Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
I just wanted to share a few thoughts (totally my own) on things I've observed over the past 15-20 years of art fairs and other venues where I've exhibited. If it helps anyone, that's icing on the gluten-free cake.
In no particular order.
love it!!! anybody doing Paradise City, Marlborough in March? would love to experiment with this concept.
I'm not too sure but it seems that the culture has lost civility lately. We had more of it once from my experience. It's certainly apparent on the internet.
Larry, you are the slowest I've ever seen in terms of setting up and taking down. It takes you longer to close your tent up at night, than it takes most people to take their whole tent down at the end of a show.
You are right Barry. I take much longer. Protecting Fine Art work takes longer than pushing aside a bunch of Clay jars :-) :-) ;-P
I agree, my system needs alot of work. It displays very nicely. I just need better efficiency in accomplishing it. Also my terrible back impedes my efforts / speed.
A lot has to do with the vehicle I transport in. I neeed to go the Sprinter / Transit / Promaster route.
Wow, some really great tips and insights....
and you get more body aches and pains and health problems than you did 20 years ago
Cheers my friend! I wish more artists had your attitude. Seems most of my shows I'm surrounded by extremely negative, snarky and ungrateful artists. Mindset is everything. You attract the same energy you give/emit... and that energy could be anything in life.
Thanks again my friend!
Really great insight and easy to understand steps. Great advice
