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

Artists of the Month: Kathrine Allen-Coleman & Scott Coleman

If you love art fairs as I do, you have probably noticed over the years that there are many couples doing art shows, each with their own body of work. Couples like this are truly hostages to fortune, throwing all their financial future into the vagaries of the art fair life: each making serious art, jurying into the art fairs where there is money to be made and being successful selling the art at the event.
"All She Ever Wanted"-mixed media by Kathrine Allen-Coleman
Scott Coleman and Kathrine Allen-Coleman from Jackson, GA, are a good example of this. They have not held "jobs" for many years and they rely on their art, almost entirely one-of-a-kind imagery, for their livelihood. These people are not making "products", but continually challenge themselves to create art that has meaning to them and also to you.

"Boat Series 3" - watercolor by Scott Coleman Scott, the traditionalist, has been a full-time painter, mostly with watercolor since 1972. Kathrine joined him at the art fairs about ten years ago skipping lightly through painting styles until most recently landing on a special look, a mixed media series featuring vintage clothing that has been garnering her prizes and acceptance at the best art fairs. Lucky you, in Florida, you will be able to meet them in Miami at the
Coconut Grove Art Festival on President's Day weekend! Learn more about Scott and Kathrine and the interesting artist's life at
