Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals

In talking with several other artists, it seems that a lot of them do not really read the fine print. I can not say strongly enough that you need to read and understand what you are signing.

We just finished doing Septemberfest in Schaumberg IL. We do black and white photography and must say that this was a great show for us. There was a lot of traffic and the people were shopping.

Overall we were pleased with the show and the week end.
