Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
I have a bigger vehicle now so I'm able to get taller panels. So I'm looking to sell my gently used ones. They are all in great condition! I'm very careful with my panels. They are all 38.5 wide…Continue
If you had your choice as a painter, would you choose either Northern VA in Reston or Springfield Old Capital in Illinois? I haven't done either before. Switching up my May shows this year and not…Continue
I live in Ohio and can easily drive 9 hours to a show, but I would like to start doing shows as far away as TX and CO next year. I know a lot of artists drive that far, but I'm wondering if anyone…Continue
I have 6 LED lights from propanel and honestly, they just aren't cutting it. And they are such a pain to set up as my booth walls are 9' tall. I was thinking about getting a couple flood lights to…Continue

I stayed in the Double Tree with the artist rate and it was so nice just being able to walk across that skywalk over to the show! The venue was really really beautiful! The previous years it had been held at a location…Continue

It all started last fall when I created a painting of a narwhal. My…Continue
