Years in the Art Fair Business
First show ever
Artopia, Chicago 2013
What are the best things about art fairs
They're FUN! Meeting lots of people is an excellent learning experience as well as a great networking opportunity. I love seeing what comes out of the minds of other wonderful artists.
Best show ever and why
Artopia/Chicago because so far it's the only one I've participated in.
Worst show ever and why
There are no bad ones for me at this point. The ones I miss, those are bad I suppose.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
I did a web search looking for more information to glean regarding shows, juries, tents, fees, traveling with artwork, etc...all the stuff a newbie needs to learn about!
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I do flying trapeze and hang gliding when I'm not making amazing art or saving the masses in the part time job (which I'm trying to quit completely) as a Registered nurse.
