Art Fair Insiders

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

I love it when an art event gets the community involved in picking the poster and encourages other activities pre-art fair, in this case the KIA Art Fair that is the first Saturday of June. It is a sweet show, well supported by the region and it is full of good artists.

So I found this today: The 2012 Billboard Contest - Kalamazoo Institute of Arts

Welcome to the 2012 Billboard Art Contest. We received 72 applications from across Michigan in multiple mediums. 20 artists were selected to compete for the Top 10 spots by a jury panel. Artists were chosen for the quality of their art and ability to present on a billboard.

Some of the artists who are competing are members here. Are you one of them?

Here is well-known Michigan artist Rebecca Hungerford's poster art:

Here is ceramics star Michael Kifer's poster art:

I really like this one - don't know the artist, Alec Hall:

Visit the link right now (until April 17) and vote for your choice:

Do you know of any other art fairs that do this kind of promotion? Why not suggest this to your favorite show?

Sounds like a great idea to me!  Great exposure for some lucky artist's work.
