What are the best things about art fairs

Besides being outside the best things are the community of other artists, the ability to show and sell work and speaking with people who are interested in all kinds of art.

Best show ever and why

To date, in the summer I would have to say Royal Oak Art in the Park. The organizers are very helpful and attentive and the sales were good. In the winter we did the Birmingham Winter Market. All tents were provided and decorated for us and while not primarily an art show we did our best sales all year and the atmosphere was festive and fun. It was cold but we were allowed a heater for our tent which took the worst of the chill off. We're doing both these shows again

Worst show ever and why

Belleville Strawberry festival. It turned out to be more of a carnival than an art show. Most of the vendors were selling things like garage door openers, bought items and advertising local businesses. There were only a few of us there that were actually artists and we did very poorly sales wise. Plus the people attending weren't interested in art and came to attend the carnival.

  • Thank you, Gloria, for referring Paul Irla to Art Fair Insiders.
  • Thanks for "friending" me (is that really a verb nowadays?!).  Your gourds are beautiful.  I'm especially intrigued by your figural work.
