Art Fair Insiders

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

The entrepreneurial life of an artist requires continuous learning and experimenting and we need to stay on top of what else is going on out there in the arts and put our own careers in perspective.

My friend, Richard Rothbard, just sent me this link to Fine Art Magazine. Want to know what the BIG "real" art fairs are doing? Who is buying art and what kind of art is being celebrated?

This amazing website opens up like a magazine and you can page through it and read the articles about high society and who is buying what and see the work of up and coming artists, as well as establishment figures.

Really worth a look:

Plus, there is an article about Richard and Joanna Rothbard, their galleries and their shows and how they have developed markets for people who do the street art fairs.

Has anyone here attended these big glossy events or participated in them? Do you see them as a goal or inspiration to market/work/innovate/grow?

In Miami this week all the glitterati are gathering to attend and purchase what the art world legitimizes as "real art" -- with huge crowds and all the fancy people in attendance to purchase and "collect." Then I just came across this article about the street artist Banksy whose work has been chopped off walls to be exhibited and sold at this event. I found it fascinating:

and maybe you will also.

Interested in more about Art Miami? -- here is an excerpt from Tom Wolfe's new book Back to Blood in Vanity Fair, "The Running of the Billionaires." It is both very funny and horrifying.
