Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
I did Bayou City at the 300 artist size and I never made it around to see all, and no way could patrons if they really stopped to look at the art. Either they went to a special artist, were looking for "just the right piece" or were making a quick "gallery" tour. Forget "be backs"; their shoes wore out the first go round. It was well run for a massive show and Houston is my best market, but when it went to 450, I declined. I agree with the other artists that feel like the organizers money woes are matched only by mine and most of the risk was transferred to the artists - entry fee, rain gamble, not to mention the art overload.
