Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
I'm heading into the applications of my second year doing shows, and as I prepare to apply to shows I have gotten in, I ask myself "they saw those slides already. But I haven't created any new awesomely amazing art pieces to switch out".
Do I apply with the exact same slides, two new slides and three old ones, or make an entirely new set? And if I do the set, then I feel I'm leaving out some of my best work (which has also never sold (lots of interest, but too expensive)
What is your opinion of fellow artists and especially people who have juried before? What would you say to slides you have seen before and let in?
The better shows want to see a consistent body of work in the jury slides and in the booth. But it really depends on the level of shows you intend on applying to. You can get away with a lot with shows that aren't that highly rated or competitive for jurying into. As your work becomes more sophisticated, you will find picking images for jury slides and getting into better shows easier.
