This discussion is most appropriate for Photographers, painters etc.
Not that others are not welcome, however I think it is most applicable to these mediums
In aforementioned categories, some shows sales are limited to area specific art.
Example: "Beachy scenes", "Certain architecture... items that are relative to that geographic location.
To try and educate the potential customer on the difference between "Art" and "Decorations" is problematic and not desired at the shows.
Someone living in south Florida may not want to hang a photo of ice breaking off a glacier. No matter how fine a piece of art it might be.
Just because a show is in Philadelphia, not all the images need to be of Rittenhouse Square.
It is difficult to determine in advance which shows are geographic specific. Just because a show is in a certain area may not mean the customer base is centric to the "area specific" purchasing practice.
How do fellow artists determine this in advance?
Few reviews seem to address this.
