"I want to extend a special thank you to Russ Mead for my gift of an "ink wash" painting of a fish.  It is matted (black) and ready to frame.  I have to admit that I know nothing of the technique but would love to learn more."

Countryside Village Art Fair, Omaha, Nebraska

Has anyone done this show?  It was recommended (strongly) to me by another artist who also owns a gallery.  I was accepted just 48 hours after mailing in my application which made me a little nervous - especially since it is the same week-end as a show that I trust but for which the jury has not yet met.

Mock Jury - St. Louis 2014

Posted on January 27, 2014 at 12:30pm 41 Comments

Saturday I attended the Mock Jury held by the St. Louis Art Fair organization.  Two things I have to say up front:  (1) I’m not a beginner and; (2) I’m blown away by the effort expended by this organization solely for the benefit of the local artists.  Many thanks to Cultural Festivals!

So, if I’m not new to the artist community, why did I go?  Because I sell well at the shows I make it in to, but can’t seem to get into the ones I want.

Did I learn anything?  Absolutely! …


Has anyone had experience with the War Eagle Fair in Hindsville, AK?

Some good friends of mine have told me this show has huge crowds but they are not artists so their perspective may be different than mine.  I'd love to know if anyone has done this show and if it lives up to it's promos.
