Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Photo by Kim Fulwiler
I can't describe the thrill of being able to announce that RC Fulwiler, the Chuck Yeager of photography, has broken the CANVAS barrier by taking a first place award for photography at the Fairhope, Alabama show last weekend.
The reason I’m reporting this is that I know RC, like most other photographers, is too modest to brag. This, however, is a report that needs reporting.
Guys and gals with photography on canvas at the shows know all about the glass ceiling when it comes to awards. Although it’s not official policy, photographers who show on canvas have not been eligible for
those awards. It’s simply been a tacit policy among art show judges. A photographer can get awards for digital
fotos on aluminum, titanium, bronze, pewter, and maybe even particle board if the subject matter is right.
But canvas? Noooo.
Way to go, Rich. One thing about awards, however. When you get one, sales suck, don't they?
