Art Fair Insiders

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

Hello, all. I am new to the site, although I'm not totally new to art fairs. I've been doing juried shows for about four years, I think. I do shows mostly in Central and Northeast Ohio.


I make freeform beadwoven and bead-embroidered jewelry.


Looking forward to participating in the community!

Hi Frances and welcome aboard :)

Hi Frances: 


I like your bead work.


I am new to this site and very new to doing art shows.  I live in Denver, CO and started drawing about 2 years ago. When I lost my "regular" job I decided to start selling my art.  I draw colorful whimsical art and you can see my images on  I sell my art in office buildings, dog grooming shops (I draw alot of dogs) and I exhibited at a few dog walking events and The Peoples Fair in Denver.  I will also be exhbiting at Pridefest in 2 weeks in Denver.


I did apply to one juried event in Castlerock and did not get accepted.  I had no feedback as to why I was not accepted but was told there were 150 openings and 300 applicants.  So maybe there just wasnt room for me. 


I am hoping this site will enlighten me on the process and I am hoping to find out about more art fairs in my area that I can apply to.


I look forward to participating.

welcome Frances,

    I live in Western Pa and also do beadwoven work along with my metalsmithing.  What shows do you do in Ohio?  We may cross paths along the way.  This is a great site with lots of useful info as well as laughs along the way.


Welcome Frances. I too, am a woven bead artist & create PMC pieces to go with the necklaces. It would be fun if you, Diane, & I would run into each other (compare stitches) at an Ohio show ;-)
Glad you have joined us, Frances. I'd guess the majority of the members here are from the Midwest, so not only can you meet them here, you will be finding them at your Ohio shows. It's a great way to expand your community and make new friends.

Hello Frances and welcome to our group.  We are glad you have joined us.  I think you will find everyone very friendly and helpful.  I hope to see you around the Forums.
