Art Show Application App

Hello Fellow Artists,

I am thinking about developing a phone app for artists to help with their show applications. It will be super easy, super simple to use with great interface, and will help to organize what shows you have applied to or wanting to apply to. 

Do you feel there is a need for this? I do. :) 

Thanks for your feedback,

  • I am with Dawn on this.. that is what I would want.

  • I would be interested. I use google sheets but I feel like something designed specifically for art fair artists could be really fabulous. I wouldn't need to have images on it just a way to keep lists of shows I am considering applying to. It would be great to connect the shows to a map too. I keep track of which shows are near each other by color coding but it's hard to remember my coding sometimes. Keep us updated and good luck!
  • good idea, if it will be easy to handle

    • Yes, that will be the key. Want to be something that is useful even when artists have down time at art shows. :) 

      • The Airtable allow you to completely customize your spreadsheet and add photos, pdf documents, maps etc and many other statistics and documents that have bemone very useful both at home and at shows. I like that i can update it on one device such as my ipad at a show and it will automatically be updated on my home computer.

        I personally find it much easier to create it on my home desktop but have it available on all devices

        • Greg, are you using the free version of Airtable? (Looks like a great tool). Thanks!

          • I use the free version and it is excellent. I lprefer it over excel for many features

            • Great- thanks very much for the infomation.

  • I use an Airtable spreadsheet that tracks and organizes everything related to every show I have done and am interested in doing. Also includes hotel, mileage, sales, tax amounts and much more.

    It also has the ability to add pdf forms and many other excellent features.

    It is very easy to use and figure out

    I can also access it from any of my devices.

    • Thanks Greg for that great tool! How many of you all use spreadsheets to keep track of everything?

      I have run into too many artists that just fall flat when trying to use technology, I included. I am thinking of making it ultra simple to keep up with expenses too. Because that really goes into evaluating shows in the future. Because so many artists just wing a lot of this and don't keep up with each show. This is one, among many others, that artists come back to an unprofitable show (for them). Of course, I'm speaking for others. Is this true or not?
