Art Fair Insiders

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

Welcome to our Secret Santa-ing group. Names were drawn on Dec. 6. What to do next:

  1. Open that email and you'll find out who you will be sending your gift to. 
  2. Go to that person's link on and leave them a message. If there is not a mailing address ask them to add it to their page. Send a cheery greeting.
  3. Decide on a gift. This is not about $$. It is about sharing your creativity, your art, some cool object that is handmade. Baking cookies is fine too. It's about community. 
  4. Put your package in the mail by December 17. 
  5. Leave comments below if you have questions AND post your gifts with photos if you can. There will be a prize for the most creative response. A highly respected juror will choose the winner.

P. S. If you don't know how to "add an image" to your comment, click here for help: Get Started

Happy holidays to all my friends in Art Fair Land!

I just received this beautiful dish from my Secret no more Santa, Kristin Collier at Creekside Glass Art. Kristin, I absolutely love it and have just the place of honor for it. The colors are perfect for my home! Thank you and safe travel back to the North Pole

I'm so happy you like my glass art bowl. You are very welcome.....ENJOY! MERRY CHRISTMAS!!

As an artist I want something that is handmade, something that represents "art" and I don't mean cookies.... Just trying to be honest. I didn't think it was even a question I should ask.

Hoping this works.  Here is my picture from Oscar which arrived yesterday.  It’s beautiful.  Oscar is it a print of a photo or a print of a painting.  My family is debating!!


Lovely ~

Oh my land-your gift is absolutely breath-takingly beautiful! Okay, what is Oscar’s last name? would love to visit his site....

Ann Marie, this is his page.

His photos are exceptional.  The way the light hits that flower is stunning.

It is a photograph.

Thanks Oscar.  It’s lovely

My Secret Santa is Don Hyson of Illinois. He said the top part wood is yellowheart, and the bottom is spalted maple. They are more beautiful in person than they are in the picture.

The wood grain looks like imagery ~ Very Cool ~
