What are the best things about art fairs

Getting feedback on new work, engaging with buyers interested in the role of art in their lives, getting to know other artists.

Best show ever and why

Plaza, KC Most sales EVER, loads of people, friendly community.

Worst show ever and why

Downtown Houston Art Fair Pouring rain made the park a mud field, no one showed up, days of driving just to lose money.

  • Hello, all-

    I'm looking for a bit of insight regarding the upcoming slate of winter shows.  I had intended to exhibit in 4-6 art festivals in Florida, then Irma hit.  My suspicion is that even though FL wasn't as heavily affected as we had first feared, there's still a significant amount of damage throughout the state, not to mention the emotional toll that residents must be dealing with.

      To those of you much more familiar with the Florida circuit than myself, what are your thoughts on the upcoming show season there?  If I lived in the region I would just go myself with fingers crossed, but I need to drive six days from the West Coast just to get there.

      I really appreciate input that any of you might have!  Thank you so much--

    Greg Gawlowski
