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

Dear Richard,


I am honored to serve as CERF+’s new Director of Emergency Relief and Recovery Services. I strongly believe that CERF+’s work is more important than ever as disasters increase in frequency and magnitude.  


As you are aware, Hurricane Dorian devastated the northern Bahamas and brought powerful flooding, storm surge, winds and tornadoes to the Carolinas and to the Canadian coastline. Our hearts are with the many communities that have been impacted by this tragic event.


CERF+ is currently monitoring the aftermath of the storm. Before landfall, we shared resources about hurricane safety with artists in the predicted impact zones. Now we are connecting with artists in the affected communities as well as with our national, state, and local partners offering assistance, including our emergency financial relief and recovery resources to help artists build back stronger.


As we are in the midst of peak hurricane season, we need your help to ensure that CERF+ remains an effective responder to artists. There are myriad ways that you can help, including:

Share information about CERF+'s Emergency Financial Assistance

Program, Get Ready Grants, and preparedness and recovery resources with your own networks.

Connect us with your networks by following CERF+ on Facebook

and Instagram, inviting your friends to like our pages, and share our posts.

Make a contribution through the secure online giving page on our

website. Every gift, regardless of size, makes a real difference in our ability to support artists working in craft disciplines and get them back on their feet following an emergency.

Please feel free to reach out to me if there's anything we can to do help. Thank you for being part of the Artists Safety Net!

Yep, I got this email also. Thank you, Richard, for using our site to share the information. I'm reposting it on our FB pages for Art FairInsiders and Art FairCalendar. Yes, and donating also. On that note, I'm going with some friends to Puerto Rico for kayaking and snorkeling in late October. We have chosen this destination to use our tourism $$ to help their economy.
