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

New Podcast: Who is Buying at the Shows and Why?

Thursday, July 26, 5 pm E.T.

Any weekend, anywhere in the U.S., there are hundreds of art fairs filled with artists and the people who love attending the shows. Who is that person who is examining your work and maybe taking it home? Today's episode is a discussion with three people who passionately attend the shows, enjoy the camaraderie with the artists and are continually adding to their collections.

  • Ed and Judie Seidman not only attend art fairs close to home but also never miss a gallery on their travels and are looking for new art and artists. In addition, they have their own personal art fair newsletter that they send to their friends advising them of upcoming shows
  • Geri Wegner travels between two homes, both in the heart of the nation's best art fairs, Chicago and Florida, where she plans her weekends around visiting the shows, meeting her friends and adding to her collections.

We'll talk about how they got started, where they've been and most importantly what makes them purchase a piece of art and pick up tips to attract buyers to your booth.

We'll be taking calls. Let us hear your questions: (805) 243-1338

Great to hear Geri's voice - I could hear her smile!   Some good tips in there about artists being approachable, not loading up their tents, good photos of products, colourful display, interesting displays.   BTW, the end was cut off though, it stopped mid-sentence.
