Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
As an artist, my brain is always coming up with different ways to create my paintings. I enjoy going to museums, gallerys and of course art fairs whenever I can and of course the fairs I'm attending. I notice a huge difference in the art you will see in a NY gallery compared to an art festival. In a New York type gallery you will see off the wall and extremely creative art, but at the festivals it's the same ol process. Sure it may be a different image or even a technique, but nothing really creative like you will see at a gallery or a Biennial. Is this because the attendee's are programmed to see the same thing at festivals or will jurors not accept anything that's not the usual? I would love to see gallery quality work at art Festivals other than big ones such as Basel or New York Art Expo. Is it possible to break the mold and still make money?
