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

Yikes! Unrest amongst the arts community in Naples, FL.

The Collier County (Naples, FL) commissioners are listening to two organizations to determine what is best for their community. The United Arts Council "is planning an art festival Jan. 23-24 that has drawn the wrath of Naples Art (the former Naples Art Association), which considers it competition. Naples Art objected, unsuccessfully, to the UAC application for a permit, saying that sandwiching in another arts festival when Naples Art already has eight scheduled in the city would erode its income."

The Naples Art Association wants to know why the festival is using an outside producer, and whether it would be taking money from the eight other festivals already in the city.

No surprise there are many people on both sides of the story.
