Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
When I first participating in art fairs, over 30 years ago, there was a big crafts show in Newnan, GA, Powers' Crossroads.
When it was founded in 1971 by local artist Tom Powers on his family’s property, the Powers’ Crossroads Country Fair and Arts Festival was something new and it was extremely popular. Some of the finest artists and artisans in the South exhibited at Powers Crossroads, and many demonstrated their crafts. There was even a moonshine-making demonstration.
It was very popular and people poured in to shop and eat and have a great time. It was held for the last time in 2012. If you are interested in the ins and outs of this business, like I am, this article chronicles the rise and fall of what was once a very popular regional event and the mainstay of some artists and craftspeoples income.
