Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Actually the "artist statement" is the "description of materials and techniques" and the little devils are a giant pain, but they're becoming more and more critical. An artist statement is a different beast altogether and seldom asked for. Larry Berman has suggested that three versions should be written and saved; with the three as 100, 200, and 300 character statements.
The one hundred character statement is probably the hardest, and is more like a mini-tweet ;-) The suggestion was made over on one of the booth shot forum posts that a new thread be started where we could share some examples. I'll start off with mine below, and if someone feels there's a better way to say it, speak right up.
Hopefully we can get a dialog going like we have for the booth shots for newbies post.
If you create a set or style of pieces all at one time, you should be able to choose which of those pieces to photograph because they all should be similar enough that it's a unified or consistent grouping.
Having a cohesive group allows you to show growth within your medium.
Thank you. I will ponder my cohesiveness. :)
