Saint Louis Art Fair Jury Results

Wow! Just got the results from the Saint Louis Art Fair. In addition to the rejection notice I got you can see how the jury scored the show for all 4 rounds THEN you can compare the results with the images/submissions of the various artists! (they only use numbers to identify the applications) Very useful as an educational tool. It is also interesting to read the various artist statements to get a feel for how others introduce their work. I always struggle with that 100 or 200 word…

Melbourne Art Festival—Show has some serious problems, hopefully they can be fixed.

This show was last weekend. Melbourne is by the Intercoastal on the Atlantic Ocean in Florida.

Then two years ago the show moved to a municipal park, northwest and…

Dogwood Art Festival, Knoxville, Tennessee, April 27-29

Well, most of you might be saying Wah? Never heard of this one...But there is something to be said for a small show in a town that has seen lots of revitalization in their downtown but not much art happening. This show has gone on for the last 35 years ( I believe) but has always been a mixed bag of art, soap and local jewelry. But It is…

point of a wait list?

anybody have any experience with show directors letting artists into a show who 1) havent even applied to the show which of course means that they didnt (or couldnt) jury in on their own merits and 2) blew by all those in same media who were on a wait list after jurying in. i dont know if ill get any responses due to potential blackballing but i myself have chosen to follow another path so maybe the question is moot. still bothers me though and am wondering how…
