Wow, that is a great resource for all who are mystified about this! Thanks.

Seeing this makes me think what is the big deal about booth shots? People spend so much time nit picking the littlest details on other people's booth shots and I saw a broad range of 'quality' for booth shots - plenty of them had characteristics that would get picked apart if posted here for feedback.

Interesting. My shot isn't on there, even though I paid like three months ago.

Not all of the artists are represented yet. It may just be those from last year.

Love looking at booths - thanks for that!

Must add that I like how they also show 3 slides.  Good for the "uniform body of work".    Some booths are surprising and not as swish as I would expect, yet the booth suits the work they create.  May be something there.

Thanks for posting a very useful link.

I just received this in my email.


Booth shots and work slides. Even though I didn't get in :) .... I learned a lot looking at the collective slides.

Interesting about the Sanibel show.

Which leads me to ask how do we get the shows to understand that they are putting our jury images in jeopardy by uploading the full size images to their web site. If this were a ZAPP show, I'd have ZAPP contact them first thing tomorrow to remove the images. Some of the artist's images open to their full size that was uploaded. I just found three that opened to 1920x1920.

Last year a jeweler got caught using other jeweler's jury images to apply to shows by taking them from web sites like this.

Images of artwork on a show's web site should be no larger than 500 pixels long dimension.

Great point!

Weirdly I liked the booth shot (in digital art) with the chair in it.  I found the chair drew my eye into the booth.

Now that's interesting! I am going to go there and say, I can't believe I got wait listed behind a few of these people. Now I'm going to put on my "be nice" hat and say that, art is so very subjective. C'est la vie!
