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.

I'll be in Haddonfield, NJ this weekend. Baltimore, MD the next. Can't wait!

Don and Staci, I'd love to hear a report on ArtScape. From what I know it is one of those big party shows which also sells art. Right?

This will be my 4th Artscape and yes it is a big party and sales are always good for me there.

I will be in Krasl on the Bluffs in St Joe ! Booth 48, hope to see you there!

Good luck and fair skies to all of us!


I'll see you there, KS.

I'll be in Madison.  First time doing the On the Square show.  Did the Off the Square last year.

Can't believe you're the first one to weigh in on this one! Half the members here will be at Madison, I'd bet. Wishing you a great show.

Thanks Connie!

I will be at Krasl, booth 144, love that show!

See you there, Judy. I think we chatted last year too.

I will be in Grand Island, Nebraska at their Art in the Park.  I was at the Kearney Art in the Park and sold one piece, and several note cards. I was pretty happy with that fact that someone bought a larger painting (24"X24"). It's the second "big bull" I've sold in less than a year (the other was last fall).  Hope Grand Island is good to me!

Is is always a thrill to sell a big one. Good for you.
