"Robert... "markets unless you're selling 16x20 prints for $5." That is exactly what i ran into at a show that I did. It used to cater to some good artwork. Then at the last one I did, they had a double booth setup where a…"

"I realize flea markets varies a lot in what that actually means. But I think a lot of people that do art fairs started out doing small shows that today we would not consider. However, when I look back at some of the worst shows I did, I'm glad…"

"Forget about flea markets unless you're selling 16x20 prints for $5. It is not your market as those are lowball venues with no appreciation for fine art. You might consider spendong some money for a consultation with the guys who do Art Fair…"

"Be careful with the feedback you receive at flea markets if your ultimate goal is not to sell at flea markets. I would absolutely encourage you to do flea markets if that's where you're at. But just be aware that there are marked…"

"Wow this is such a good reason. Maybe it's super cliche, but there is that saying that goes along the lines of, when you label me you negate me. In the sense of a piece of art, that piece is doing work to everyone in their own way. It's…"

"I have been seeing this in the discussions on the FB page. Seems the better shows don't want canvas. You can bring it up and ask about it. The thread was probably removed as it wasn't directly related to reviews. I personally rank shows…"

Lynnette Shelley replied to PHILIP JEFFERSON's discussion Need an honest answer
"My personal opinion is text on a photo detracts and instead of having a photo that a person can look at and have their own meaning , they are forced in to only seeing it one way.  I don't think many fine art shows would want works with…"

"Selling photographs even exceptional ones is difficult at art fairs.  Adding text just eliminates a large percentage of customers making it even harder.  It costs thousands of dollars to buy a tent and panels, hangers, etc. that are needed…"
