Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
We have just returned from an art show in Lincoln, IL. The weekend is an event of Art and Balloon's (Hot Air Balloons). And is produced by the Lincoln/Logan County Chamber of Commerce. On our arrival at 7:00 Saturday morning as we were approaching Lincoln on the Interstate Hwy, we were greeted by no less than 24 balloons in the air. It was a great welcome to the weekend.

Sunday took us to Appleton, WI's Art at the Park. A couple of years ago, they moved the show from being on the park grass, to being on the street around the park.

Like many other parts of the country, she turned up the heat on Saturday and kept the attendance down, way down. My phone told me it was 100 degrees. Yikes! It was a marked difference from…Continue
Bloomington, IL just completed the Spring Bloom Art Show. This one-day show is put together by the McLean County Art Center. This year, they needed to move the show to a different building on the edge of town and move the date. Those are 2 factors that could have affected the show. There were less artists available, because of more options in show for this weekend. But it did…Continue
