"You can call me tomorrow and I'll go over it with you. Like I pointed out, the most important part of a jury process for artists is their images. There needs to be a tab for images or image bank or portfolio or whatever you want to call it, but…"

"As an expert in photography as well as computer systems, I shall make a few comments. 1) viewing my jury images on their own, home computer monitor is a bad idea.   A) Their monitors are most likely not calibrated to accurately display my…"

"Ahhhh, competition for ZAPP, JAS, CAFE etc.  So, for the jurying, it states they can relax at home and tend to it. Kindly explain how this works?"

Julia Szabo commented on Julia Szabo's blog post What I learned as a Volunteer at Sausalito Art Festival
"The Shows I volunteer for cherish them and that is probably the difference from a good and bad line-up.  I just finished another 5 hr. shift at Mountain View Art Festival (CA) and it was very well run. There were people of all ages volunteering…"

What I learned as a Volunteer at Sausalito Art Festival

Posted on September 4, 2019 at 7:30pm 4 Comments

Most of you give the Artist’s prospective so I thought to share my experience as a Volunteer.

The Sausalito Art Festival is a major Fine Art Festival with 260 Artists from 41 States and 12 Countries. Booth fees are $1500-$3000, canopy included. Entrance fees:  $30-General and $100-VIP.

Sausalito and its surroundings have an upscale demographic and that reflected in the Artwork quality, price and Patrons spending.  I overheard a Lady jokingly negotiating a necklace down to…
