Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Let me begin by saying that every since I began seriously trying to get into art fairs, Penrod has been my dream, a symbol to me that I had really made it. The Penrod Art Fair is one of the BIG 3…Continue

A few years ago IKEA had just what I'm looking for. I saw them at an art fair. They have been discontinued! Anyone have any suggestions?

We just did a great show in Springfield, IL this weekend, AN ART AFFAIR, organized and promoted by artist Ed Martin, who has considerable experience as a participant, and thus carried out the most wonderful show experience for the artists. I posted a review of the show. This is an up and coming show and I highly recommend it for next year. Finding a comfortable indoor show in April in Indiana and Illinois is wonderful!
On the other hand, I have applied for the 4th Street Art Fair…Continue
