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


Your entry 1912.157431 ...was not juried into Art on the Square 2015.  Your interest in the show is appreciated and we wish you much success with your work."

I had no idea what show this was from.  Art on the Square is a common name in this business.  It took quite a while to figure out it was Belville, IL.  Gee thanks!  I guess that's all $40 will get you these days.

That may be the worst notification I have seen! I hope someone associated with the show will see or hear about this and make improvements.

I received the same response also. I don't believe they could possible get any more cold and impersonal that they did with this reply. Sounds like someone there doesn't particularly like what they do.

That kind of form letter response gives the impression that this show is all about getting your money with as little effort as possible. Show them how much you "appreciate" their response, and don't apply again.

Same answer here. Short, sweet, and to the point. This is not my season to be jolly.

If there is anything that southern Illinois town needs, it is the wit and sense of humor of RC's work at this show.

You hear so many wonderful things about this show that I am really surprised that they  would send out a letter like this.  Sounds like they are becoming "just another show".  A damn pity.

I am all for a giant happy face or a sad frowning face as the universal notification letter.

I have an idea... How about an animated cartwheel email for yes, or animated mooning for no?

I commented on Facebook but it doesn't show up here. Strange

A little bit of personality and character wouldn't hurt either.

Comment by Robert Wallis on February 27, 2015 at 10:17pm
Heh, that's what we got and like you said, mighty little of either.
