Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Not sure if this headline would make me want to attend this show in the Cleveland area: Lakewood Arts Festival a Sweltering Success... http://lakewood-oh.patch.com/articles/lakewood-arts-festival-a-sweltering-success#photo-7290581
We all know that the real biggie this weekend (650 artists at the main event and even more at two smaller events) is taking place in Minneapolis this weekend at the Uptown Art Fair. Here's what the CBS affiliate says: 350,000 People Crowd into Minneapolis Weekend Art Fairs. http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2011/08/06/350000-people-crowd-into-m...
Not sure about this one. The Mystic Outdoor Art Fair (CT) used to be pretty highly regarded so what do you think about this headline: Outdoor Festival to feature Children's Art http://www.thewesterlysun.com/mysticriverpress/news/outdoor-festiva...
Then there is this ominous headline for the Park City (UT) Kimball Arts Festival, "Economy paints a darkening picture as artists arrive in Park City"... http://www.parkrecord.com/ci_18625639
But here's a more positive spin on that event, "Art festival partnerships benefit Park City", http://www.parkrecord.com/ci_18625679
And why don't we hear more hear about the Asheville, NC, Village Art and Craft Fair? Is it strictly a regional event? It is held on the grounds of the Biltmore Estate and partly sponsored by the prestigious New Morning Gallery... here are more details on this one: http://www.goupstate.com/article/20110804/ARTICLES/110809837/1097/s...
