Hello, all - I'm doing the Boardwalk Art Show in Virginia Beach next weekend, and have heard all sorts of horror stories and dire warnings... I'd really like to hear from some of you who've done the show, about any tips or ideas you have particular to the Boardwalk show.
I know to bring extra weights, and to tie my tent to the fence. I have a plan to keep people from entering the tent from the back during the show (I have a set of old wire mesh panels, and am going to put up a pair of them between my mesh panels and the back wall of the tent.
What else do I need to know?
And a judging question... I have heard that the show judges everyone, invites the top whatever percent for next year, then kicks out the bottom whatever percent for next year.
First of all, is this true?
Second of all, I have a nice, steady business in pet portraits, and I usually hang two or three pet portraits along with a sign telling folks they can sign up to get portraits. I am thinking that for this show, I should maybe not hang those pieces?
Thanks for any tips or ideas!
