Larry Berman replied to Dave Grabarczyk's discussion Is it better to apply earlier or later to a show using Zapp?
"Depends. Some shows order the images by alphabetically, some by ID# you were assigned when you signed up with zapp, some by application start date and some by application closing date. I've gotten into major shows applying at the last minute…"

First show ever
Crosby Festival of the Arts
What are the best things about art fairs
Seeing new art and meeting new artists
Best show ever and why
First Crosby Festival of the Arts show I participated in because I was being accepted as an artist for the first time in a juried show and not just a crafter.
Worst show ever and why
Can't say that I've ever had a worst show, but any show where it rains comes on the list.
Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.
Came across the web site while looking for some other art related materials.
What is one fun fact about yourself?
It's great to have a beer and sit and listen to the music at many of the festivals during the year.
