Art Fair Insiders

Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

I like to call this weekend in July the Great American Art Fair Weekend with so many choices of shows all around. A few that come quickly to mind: State College (PA), Cain Park (Cleveland Heights, OH), Madison (WI) and the Krasl Art Fair in Michigan. Also big in exhibitors but not as good in quality there are Wyandotte and Plymouth in metro Detroit.

I'll be in St. Joe, MI, on Friday night and Saturday and look forward to meeting many of you there. On Friday evening I'll be in the big white tent hosted by Schu's Restaurant on the main street across from the show. It is a good central place for us to meet up after you set up and I'd like to treat you there to a little AFI hospitality. Can I expect you?

Where will you be? Tell us so we can meet up.

Connie - Hope to meet you at the Krasl.  I will be participating however probably will not attend the reception Friday night since I am staying with friends for the weekend.

I look forward to meeting you, Jane. Hope you have a great show.

I'll be a first-time exhibitor at the Ketchum Arts Festival:  (Sun Valley, Idaho.)  Looking forward to temperatures that should be 15 degrees less than what we're having in Boise!

Hope your wishes come true in Ketchum, Chris.

Post a review of this one please. I did a museum cowboy trappings show there several times in the early '90s. Definitely money there. Also spent two summers doing geologic exploration work out of K and SV in the '70s. Fun towns.

I will be loading my car to begin the three day drive to Jackson Hole, Wyoming for Art Fair Jackson Hole July 20-22!

Been there before, Leigh Ann? Love to have a report on this show. Friends made the trek once ... that sort of tells the tale on that.

I've been to the area several times, but not the show.  This is our favorite part of the country...will let you know how the show goes!




Doing one close to home: the Westerville Music and Arts Festival (hope its not 118 degrees like it was last year!!!!)

At least you can run home for the air conditioning. Nothing like being able to sleep at home on a blistering weekend. Good luck, Britt.

Staying in the A/C and leading a class this weekend.  No shows until September while I build up inventory during the hot months...

Hmmm... who is the smart one here ...
