Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
August 30 & 31, 2014 - Portland, OR - Art in the Pearl
Opening the show in the Pearl District
This is Randy Sedlak, his wife Lynn Sedlak-Ford, is an artist but on the committee. I never caught her in the booth. Together they keep this show running.
Another artist on the committee is potter Natalie Warrens. I've seen her in Ann Arbor dressed to match her colorful pots. This time I was the one dressed to match the pots.
and Lisa Burge of New Mexico who I last saw in Ann Arbor, MI
I'm used to attending shows where there are artists from a wide swath of the U.S., many states represented. Here I'd guess it was 80% Oregon, Washington, Idaho. A very regional show, that is not to denigrate the quality though.

Another nice double belonging to photographer Chris Dahlquist. Pristine setup.
Shelley Martin and her "minimal modern utilitarian ceramics". Such a clean and attractive display. Shelley says her main marketplace is on Etsy.
This shot is especially for jewelers, see all the different display levels. This was a very interesting to look at. I spent a long time here looking at the work, a wide range of price points. As a shopper do you see the appeal of this booth? The work is by Susan Frerichs.
Gia Whitlock gets extra points for dressing to match her mixed media work.
Amazingly beautiful enamel bowls from Jody Stone of El Cerrito, CA
Look at this! Just what we were recently preaching in our podcast on email marketing. Chicago photographer Xavier Nuez's email sign up notice.
Worth a post in itself -- doing all of it right.
