Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
It's already 110 here in Gilbert, AZ so, I had to set this up very early to not get too much light. Not sure which pic I like best and open to any feedback. In the first pic on the right back…Continue

There was an option to set up on Thursday night from 6-7, check in was easy and I was able to park next to my space to unload. Set up was a breeze, although those with RV's had a hard time getting…Continue
This was my first time doing this show, so it was definitely a learning experience. It's located right by ASU on Mill Ave, a popular college hangout.

Now I don't think any artist would mark a painting sold if it wasn't really sold but my wife thinks people may…Continue
This sounds like an opportunity too good to be true and well you know what they say about that. It sounds like an amazing event for artists but when you look at their website there isn't that many artists, compared to what their saying. Does anyone know anything about this? Is it just another scam taking advantage of artists or is it a genuine opportunity?
