Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
So many of you have been generous and helped build this site that it is time to do some serious recognition of the people who have made it happen. A volunteer editorial board of members has sent me nominations for the most important people in the community and we are rolling out our first AFI Community Leaders.
These people can be identified by the "Red Dot" insignia on their pictures on the site. This first group have been members here for three years, in fact, Geri Wegner, was member #51, and she is still here explaining the business and shopping at the shows! Way to go, Geri.
One of the editors said:
...let me say that there are several who would be at the top every time. They always respond. They always give their opinion, not always agreeing but that is what makes reading those topics interesting.
And another said she made her choices because she liked, "their insight, conversation starting and willingness to show their vulnerability and strength as artists and businesspeople."
And the Leaders are:
Many thanks to all of you for their generosity. May your kindness return to you in the same beautiful way it was offered.
Every month we will be choosing a few people to add to this elite list. I'll be looking for your nominations. We all really appreciate those who contribute to this community and help the rest of us make sense of this peripatetic life. What makes you get up and visit this site? Who do you love?
