What are the best things about art fairs
Interacting with customers. Getting the feedback on my work. Making the sales!
Best show ever and why
The second or third show I did when someone came into my booth and asked me if I was the artist. All of a sudden, it hit me. I was, finally, really an artist.
Worst show ever and why
Naples Art in the Park in February. It rained all morning. It was windy and cold -- unusual for February in Naples. We were able to open the show for a couple of hours and had a dribble of people.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
I googled a jewelry artist who had won Best in the Show at the Naples National. I was referred to Art Fair Insiders and thought it might help me.

Thanks so much for your pledge. I appreciate it and it really helps me with my mission of supporting the artists so they can earn a living in this crazy business.

Hi Charlotte,

Getting into the more competitive shows is grueling. But yesterday (Hurrah) we were taken off the wait list and accepted to a huge show in Arlington Heights, IL. The thrill is amazing.

There are lots of folks here from Florida and I know lots of shows there.

Best of Luck!

Hi, Charlotte... I'm new to Art Fair Insiders, too. Glad to see more of us are getting onboard - I've been reading some of the discussions and have found some good tips - you've been doing this longer than I have, but I bet you'll find some good info, too. See you 'round the discussions...

Hi Charlotte,
Sorry for the long delay in responding to your comment - actually I commented back the same day - but I noticed that being new to this site - I commented to myself! So since you didn't recieve the first one I will paste it at the end of this
March 8th -I wasn't very active in the art community until around five years ago - right when you left- sorry. I have been sort of stirring the pot in the area since then though. Help start a networking group of artists called the Bohemian Art Society - it's a group of artists that show in the area that get together once a month or so and share what works and what doesn't at local shows. We probably have a lot of mutual friends. Tom
