Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
I am a mixed media jewelry artist whose main ingredient is the dried acrylic paint pulled from the artist palette. After years of doing shows, my booth has evolved to what you see here. It is simple, colorful, lightweight, and it all fits in my car.
Recently I mentioned to my jewelry photographer that I have never been accepted to a show from Zapplication. He looked at my jury slides and then assured me it was because of my booth shot, not because of the jewelry . He went on to say that jurors look at the type of tent in the booth shot, and if it is an EZ Up they are more likely to disqualify you.
Here's my question: What do you think? Is it the tent or the display, or both, or neither? What can I do differently that could give me a better shot at being accepted into shows?
