Art Fair Insiders

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

Hi everyone!

My name's Stephany, and I'm a graduate student and amateur photographer currently living in Columbus, OH.  I focus primarily on landscape photography, although I do some art and writing on the side.  I recently got accepted to exhibit at the Columbus Arts Festival as an emerging artist, and this is my first art fair ever—exciting and intimidating at the same time!  If this goes well, I think I'll try to attend more art fairs, especially once I get all my booth materials ready :)

Here's some examples of my work:

I have a portfolio at and an Indiegogo campaign at to help fund my first exhibit adventure :)

If you have any tips for a newbie, especially cost-saving tips, I'd greatly appreciate them!

Hi Stephany! Your art is cool!  Columbus is a great opportunity for you.  This is a great site for anything having to do with art fairs.  Many of the members here have been doing shows for 20 to 30 years or more.  One thing we always do is bring our own salad lunch. That way we save $$$s and eat healthier.

Hi Stephany and welcome to AFI :)   Lovely work, I'm especially fond of that top photo!!  Congratulations on your first show .... trawl through the site, use the search bar and glean all you can about booths, set up hints, what to take and more.  I guarantee you quite a few late nights reading but the tips you will find are invaluable!
