Art Show in Lake Bluff, IL: No Entry Fee

I just found this in my inbox:

Would you like to exhibit your art in a Lake Bluff Art show without any application fee? Not only would it cost you nothing, but also the tent is already provided.  As if no fee and no tent were not easy enough,  you don’t even have to take your work home over night.

“Art for the Parks” will be the next exhibit and sale presented by Artists on the Bluff, our local arts organization with members from Lake Bluff and the neighboring communities. The event will take place Saturday, August 25th, and Sunday, August 26th, 10am to 5pm each day, in the Lake Bluff Golf Course tent, north Green Bay Road in Lake Bluff. For sale will be paintings, drawings, water colors, jewelry, and ceramics. There will be no entry fee for artists to display and sell their work but 35 percent of sale prices will be devoted...

perhaps this would be a good show for someone local and new to the business to try out. If I were to do my average show I would end up paying over $1000 booth fee and other than a handful of shows no one charges that much.

That's about the same percentage that galleries take, at least in my area of Virginia.  I mark work up to put in galleries, but not by 35%.

Sadly, not the best weekend--Port Clinton and the ACE show are also that weekend.

Maybe, maybe not, Lori. At least the organizers are taking the risk along with you.
