"Thanks Tina, Great information. I guess $11K makes a $650 booth fee sound like pocket change. :)"

"I have done that show, (2018) Larry - in fact, it was our very first Fine Art Show ever.  Talk about Deer in Headlights!  The show cost us around $11,000 to do between booth, flights, hotels, food, Ubers, crating our art and…"

"One of the best indoor shows in the country is the Art Expo (New York-San Fran). They are accepting apps now for the New York show in February 2020. A 10x10 booth is $6100.00 and they take 15% from every sale. I haven't done that show, but if…"

"Thanks Scott. I had watched that video a while back, but it felt a bit like he was selling snake oil or something. I couldn't bring myself to sign on the dotted line. It might be great though, I just wasn't brave enough to take that chance."

"The guy mentions clicking on the sign up link, never saw it.  I do not do fine art ... I flip furniture and vintage home decor.  Wondering if his course would work for me?  Whether I do it depends a lot on the cost."

Earlier this year I purchased propanels and a tent, lights,etc. and was planning to start doing a lot of art festivals and then proceeded to strike out at 3 major shows in New England. Well, I did cover my costs at the Marlborough, MA Paradise City show last March but it was a fluke.So I'm getting the message from the universe (and showgoers) that maybe it's the wrong audience and approach for my work..which is abstract oil paintings and guitars. Then, I recently rolled the dice on an expensive…See More
