I'm looking for any input you all may have about how to make a transition from craft shows and farmers markets into art shows/fairs.
A (shortened) bit of background..
I make jewelry, and have done so since I was very little. I'm in my 5th year of business, and it has progressively gotten better and better over the years. I started out selling to co-workers, then online, and branched out to doing shows including many farmers markets. As the new year comes along, my aim is to keep my momentum going and venture into a new direction. My work is in a couple of galleries, and I have been featured at said galleries. Long story short, after speaking with a few artist friends, I would like to give some bigger art shows a shot. I've been browsing Zapplication, but am quite intimidated by the way they speak of booth set ups. Currently I use a 10x10 pop up, but have seen talk of artists using Craft Huts. Is is necessary to purchase one of these down the line? My artists resume also isn't that lengthy in regards to fine art shows I have done in the past - could this hurt my chances of being accepted?
I know that many artists out there have been in my similar situation, so how did YOU make the transition from crafter to artist?
