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.

"...the organizers' money woes are matched only by mine..."

Classic.  One of the best snippets of prose I've read all year.
