Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
I tried to move up to larger and better art festivals this year, and was met with a resounding NO. I'm thinking my booth could be part of the issue and hopefully someone can point me in the right direction? I do know this shot is darker than preferable.
The short answer is that your display needs to move up in sophistication to match what artists who get into those better shows use.
Not to be harsh but you should walk the shows you want to apply to and see if your display fits.
I suggest getting rid of the tables and table covers and lattice. To get into better shows you need to have more of a gallery look.

There's no canopy in the picture either.
This gives me good things to start with. Thank you. Unfortunately Northern Indiana isn't cooperative about clear ground or weather in January so I had to set it up in my garage. I do plan to go to the shows I didn't get into this year to see what they look like. I absolutely hate the look of pro panels. Would the Mesh type hanging walls give the same boost to the look?
Thank you all for the responses, I really appreciate the help!
Mesh walls are fine. If jurors like your work a booth shot with mesh walls will not keep you out.
I second all that has been said by Larry and David.
