Every year we have worked to improve our image to the public at Art Fairs. I have used the sage advice of experienced AFI members, my great photographer Larry Berman and observations at every great Amdur Fair.
We started with a standard tent, white gridwalls and cloth covered tables. I will not bore you with a picture of that year.
Every year we upgraded our graphic display, built risers for the tables, then upholstered that structure, diminished our use of gridwalls.....well, attached is a picture of our jury booth now.
We love it. BUT.....
My husband feels glass cases are the next step He is an excellent engineer and finisher. The time is now to construct a new look for jury shots.
I do not know the pros and cons of putting my work away where customers can not see it closely. Would buying electricity for lighting be worth the money these days? Do people assume a booth with jewelry cases is automatically too pricey? Is the glass hard to transport and set up? Would I like being behind a counter? talking over something to people? Is what I have "good enough"? Or is it what is keeping me from that one top show?
