Years in the Art Fair Business


First show ever

Art Beat Downtown South Bend, IN

What are the best things about art fairs

The people. I love the other artist and the patrons. I love hearing people compliment my work. I love it when people want to own my work.

Best show ever and why

Bloomington 4th Street Art Fair. The organizers were wonderful. The patron were generous. Everything about the show was easy.

Worst show ever and why

Eiteljorg museum. We were stuck in the basement with no signage to point patron to our area. The artists were definitely an "Oh by the way" to their train exhibit.

  • Hi, Jeri.

    My name is Raoul, and I'm writing to you about a comment you left on Crosby Art Festival.  You mention not wanting to be out in the sunny, (yeah, I can feel you on that) or off in what you describe as an "Island".  May I ask you what your booth number was, and, perhaps, where these islands are located.

    I'm thinking of doing this show and would appreciate any information that you could offer.



  • Thank you, Jeri, for this support of our website. I hope it is helpful to you and you flourish in the business.

  • Well, we're glad to have you, Jeri.  I've always been attracted to weaving and had a belt loom back in the day...what kinds of things do you weave?  Wraps, scarves, rugs?  You should download (upload?) some photos to your site if you haven't already.  

  • Hello Jeri,

    Welcome to Art Fair Insiders!  As a fellow fiber artist, I'd love to know more about what you do...I'm a knitter/felter who makes women's hats and handbags, etc.  This is a wonderful site for meeting other artists and learning about the Art Fair business.  Thanks for joining us and best of luck to you.
