Digital Artist Opens a Gallery: A 2-year Report

I've been doing art fairs for many years exhibiting my digital paintings (prints). A couple of years ago my wife, Marcia, and I opened an art gallery in the resort town of Douglas, Michigan, right across the river from Saugatuck. This area is billed as "The Art Coast of Michigan" and boasts 30-plus art galleries. We opened the gallery because we're getting old. After many years we finally figured out how to make money at art fairs, but they are so much work! More work every year. We thought,…

Maitland Rotary Review, 11-17 & 18, 2018

Maitland Rotary Art Fest

This, our first Art Fest experience, was held last weekend in Maitland, FL a suburb Northeast of Orlando in absolutely gorgeous weather… the kind that makes you feel “Life is Good!” The actual venue for this event was Lake Lily, a beautiful small lake with community facilities, nice walking trails and plenty of lakeside set-up spaces. Electricity was available for many of the sites within reasonable distances, good bathrooms nearby and fine interior spaces for…

3 Ways to Thrive in the Art Fair Business (reprise)

Look what I found in our archives -- an excellent article from artist Ginny Herzog from March, 2009. You remember 2009 ... scary days for our country and art fairs.

Ginny has now been doing shows for over 30 years and continues to be enthused about the life style and her…

Old but New

Reading through the various posts, it seems that Reviews of Shows are a sought commodity. Thus, I thought I'd do a little blog-journelling, as I am getting ready to jump into the Art Fair scene for the first time. Might be worth a few laughs for you, the experienced artists out there, as you read about the various shenanigans I get into as I go along. Here's where things stand today:

1. Who am I? I'm an old retired guy who has been a closet artist for life. A few…

The Great Gulf Coast Art Festival—Pensacola, Florida

This is always on the first full weekend in November. It is three days, ending at 5pm on Friday and Saturday and at 4pm on Sunday.

In my humble opinion this is the best fall show to do in Florida, nobody else compares.

Also Pensacola is a very cool town to hang out at.

Lots of good seafood bars and restaurants (more about them later), easy traffic, cheap lodgings, a mellow setup and a great wholesale seafood outlet to stock up on Monday morning.

Plus, most artists…

LOOKING FOR ART PARTNER AND ACCOMPLICE!!!!

I am looking for a female artist (45+) who wants to do art fairs around the country. Someone who feels that an "accomplice" and partner could make it easier and a lot more fun than doing it alone.

I've been doing the Art Fair circuit for only 9 months and after 35 years of doing TV around the world I am now hooked on the lifestyle of selling my art around this country. I do look at couples (made lots of great friends) doing the shows, and I confess.. I am envious. Alone is…
