Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
I guys, my name is Lee White and I'm a new member here. I've been doing fairs for about 3 years and just started getting serious about it. I'm currently a children's book illustrator and am working on my 17 published book. A life filled with publishing books and doing the art fairs has become a dream come true for me.
I hope to learn all I can from you guys. I've already seen some great information on the site! :) I'm in Portland Oregon and we mainly just do west coast shows. Come say hi if you see me at any of them. I'd love to meet you!
Here's a few samples of my work and a link to my website if you wanna take a peek. : )
This is such wonderful work, Lee. Thanks for joining us. I'll be in Portland at the end of this month attending the ZAPP sponsored Arts Festival Conference and attending Art in the Pearl. Want to meet there? Are you participating in that show?
I just looked at your website. Wow.
Hi Lee, LOVE your work and welcome to the group.
Hi Connie and Jeanette! Thanks for the kind words about my work. I really appreciate it.
I have done Art in the Pearl twice but sadly I didn't get in this year. It's a bummer too because I did so well at the ones I participated in. Definitely my best sales so far happened there.
Connie, I'd love to meet up with you while you are in town. Let's touch base a little later in the month and see what we can set up. : )
Hi Lee, welcome to AFI! I really like your work...amazing! I do have a question for you though, at an art fair, what do you sell? Original art? Children's Books that you've illustrated? Just curious...anyway, good luck to you!
