Newbie Art Fair Suggestions

Hello

As a Wisconsin resident no one can blame me for spending my winters in Fort Myers, Florida. I am looking for Art Fairs from December 2019 to April 2020. 

An Art Fair that is more fun and casual be a good fit for my very colorful, whimsical art made out of recycled plastic containers. My artwork ranges between $35.00 to $450.00. I have my artwork in galleries  Sanibel, Fl And Key West, Fl, but would like to try the Art Fair route.  Any suggestion would be…

Main Street Fort Worth—Killer Show even though we lost one day

For me, this is the best show in the nation for sales.

It is a five figure show for the majority of artists.

They get about 1400 applications and only 250 are picked.

Luckily, I have been in five out of the last seven years.  For whatever reason, I jury really well here. And, I have gotten in with 2different bodies of work.

Here are some of the basics about the show.

  • It is held on Main Street in downtown—eight blocks long.
  • Seven of the blocks…

I applied by accident meannint to apply to madisons show of the same name. I did notice and apply to madison but i got in to this lake forest one and Iam not sure to accept or not as the reviews i could find seem very old from 2013 and 2011 a friend sent me two others that where not great but had no date on it.

Bayou City Art Festival-Good for some

Well, this happened at end of March, I am a little late, because I had to make 600 pieces of art for my next three shows, and Bayou is one.  Then I have Main Street Fort Worth and Mainsail.

I am blogging at a sushi bar, a good one, outside of Shreveport enroute to Ft. Worth, hereafter called FW.

Bayou is a tough show to call.

For many it can be a big winner.  Especially if you have high-priced items.

If you sell in the lower, $30-$300 price range, then this show…
