Rating Howard Alan Art Shows..

Hello;

I live in South Florida and want to plan half a dozen art shows between now and next Summer in Florida. I was thinking of (if accepted!) limiting it to the Howard Allen Art Shows as they seem to be well organized. (I say this as I have not been in any of them yet.) Do any fellow artist have past experiences with these shows, and can direct me to the better ones? (In terms of crowd and POSSIBLE sales...) Thanks.

Peoria Art Fair

The Peoria Art Fair took place in a riverfront park in Peoria September 28-30. I had the pleasure of being the featured artist for this show, including the use of my images on posters, billboards, programs and a delightful mural-sized mosaic depiction of one of my paintings created by patrons of the art fair. In return for the…

Funky Ferndale Art Show—A money-maker For some

Ferndale is a north suburb of Detroit.

It is a three day show that was held last weekend.

Integrity Shows, which is Mark Loeb, produces it.  You can find it on Zapp.

FF is a multi diverse community.  The downtown has come a long way in last ten years.

Back then the Main Street had lots of closed stores and only a handful of restaurant bars to choose from.

Now, the street is packed with lots of commerce and bars.  There are four barbershops to choose…

Law

Hello;

I took a few photos of costumed people in a pubic parade, and made big posters of them. Is it with my right to sell these? I can't find (or even know by sight) the persons who were dressed in those costumes...

Two "Edward" Shows - Hidden Gems in the Midwest

I just did two great shows in the midwest that I had not heard of before this year.  One was Edward's Place Fine Art Fair in Springfield, IL, September 15th and 16th and the other was Edwardsville Art Fair, in Edwardsville, IL September 21-23rd in Edwardsville, IL outside of St. Louis.  

Edward's Place Fine Art Fair has been going on for 30 years and I think I just never looked for shows that weekend before because of previous commitments.  But it turns out this show fits a lot of the…

Another art fair hit by the economy

Back in 2008 and 2009 when the economy was hit by the "great recession" many events closed up shop for economic reasons. But its' been awhile since I've heard of any more. Then today I read that a 26 year old art fair in St. Joseph, MO, Trails West!, held annually since 1993 had been suspended.

The organizers cited increased costs of producing the festival, not a surprising reason considering the inflation since 1993 and the security costs incurred since 9/11. But the second reason…
