Hi all. I'm new to AFI. I moved to our new home recently and haven't met other local artists yet, so I'm delighted to find a place where we can bounce ideas off one another, and help each other out.
My question - I'm a contemporary resin artist (painter, not crafter). I attended the Taubman Sidewalk Sale last year. It ended up in the top 5 of the festivals I did last year (in terms of $). Not great, but not bad.
This year (after learning my lesson about only applying to one show/weekend at a time and then not being accepted to it) I applied to both Tauban and Arts in the Middle and have been accepted to Arts in the Middle. Taubman isn't finished jurying yet.
I don't know anything about this show and don't find any reviews on it. Does anyone have experience at it? I have to pay for Arts in the Middle before they announce vendors for the Taubman fair and am not sure if I should bite the bullet and try it (bird in the hand....) or skip it and hope for the best with the Taubman fair.
Thanks in advance for your help and I look forward to participating with AFI and meeting some of you at upcoming shows.
