"Thank you for your candor.  I'm in the position anyone starting a small (tiny, itsy-bitsy...) business, I suppose:  how much "capitol" do you invest on a chancy outcome.  I guess I wanted some sense of whether the work…"

"Your paintings need to be photographed better. The first one looks a little out of focus and the third has uneven lighting. And the styles look different. Not having a booth picture and not having done any shows only puts you in a position to apply…"

"Your work looks great. A booth shot will show scale of the work (is it 2 feet or 8 feet tall) and the overall arrangement. You may wish to hire a professional photographer for your work, someone who is both good with a camera and photoshop. The…"

"I’m not familiar with the Showoff brand, but Flourish has two styles.  The white is a mesh that you hang “s” hooks through on either side.  The Black has the mesh with the “s” hooks on the inside; but to hang…"

"I'm thinking of getting a Showoff tent.  The question is whether or not to get the display walls.  I can get them in various colors -- black would work with my work, I think -- but it's not clear to me what exactly the walls are…"

"I asked a similar question before purchasing my Flourish mesh walls.  I have the white mesh, and they are super easy to set up, very durable, and can hold artwork on either side (so I can display artwork on the outside walls of my tent, as well…"

"Wow, this is fantastic!  Yesterday I was in the dark and today I'm among friends!  Thanks to all. Another question re booths: Setting aside the question of whether to start with a cheaper tent or with the best you can afford, what…"

"Hi Edgar, I started showing only two years ago. I began at small local arts and crafts fairs with just a table space indoors. It wasn't the right venue for my work, but it gave me experience dealing with how to set up, what I needed to…"

"Consistency at the show will depend on the festival. For a lot of shows people will just buy it if they like it. At higher end shows (Cherry Creek for instance) many buyers are a bit more astute and will be looking for that consistency or…"

Mark Loeb replied to Edgar Williams's discussion Trying to get accepted to my first show...
"Many shows receive twice as many applications as spaces so it's likely that some very high-quality artists will not be invited. Some of the considerations- • The style of work that fits the show - Is it a traditional show, a contemporary…"
