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

This may be a dumb question, but I’m doing the Neptune Festival in Virginia Beach in a couple months. The information packet says can’t bring work outside the scope/style of work submitted and juried, or work not submitted with photos. 

Does that mean if I paint 6 new pieces between now and then, in the same style, that I can’t bring them?

New to shows, so I appreciate all the help.

In my experience, the juried photos give the judges an idea of what to expect from your art. If the new paintings are in the same style, there shouldn't be a problem. I've never had an issue doing this. But, if you're still concerned, see if there is a person working at the festival you can email to ask

Thank you Kristy! That’s what I thought too.

Some shows allow a certain percentage of work not juried in. The Michigan Guild has a 10% rule for new work. Best to ask.
