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

I wonder if someone can suggest an indoor art show mid-Nov through 1st weekend in Dec. that might still be taking applications.  If you know of outdoor shows I'll consider that but the weather can be so unpredictable - and that always affects sales.

I live just outside of Austin and have been traveling to Houston / Dallas and surrounding Austin area.  I'm open to other cities - and would like some ideas.  A great show somewhere in Central Texas would be fabulous too.

The shows that I have been doing on those weekends no longer seem to generate my type of client traffic.  My client is more of a fashion client (yup I do original clothing designs in jackets, shirts, scarves, etc.).    I sell to a mix of women from their late 20's to older women - had a lady in her 70's buy from me earlier this Spring.   Usually I do well in a more 'fine art show' that also allows fine 'craft'.

Thanks for your ideas,

Sue Foss

Hi Sue,

Paragon is starting two new art fairs in the Dallas area, with one in Fort Worth in the middle of November.  It says that it is at a mall, but I am unsure it is inside or outside.  These are new shows of course, so I have no experience with the show.  Paragon is on ZAPP.

Sue, have you looked at  It is one of our sites and has lots of shows looking for new artists.  You may be able to find some on that site and the great thing is you know they are still looking for artists.
