Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
This was my first year as an artist in the Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair. I've been attending the fairs since 1998 as a customer buying art. There are many pieces in our house from the collecting over the years. Some are in storage in the basement because there is not enough wall space in our house.
The truth is that I was accepted into both the Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair and the State Street Area Art Fair. But being a new artist at the Ann Arbor art fairs is both exciting and demanding at the same time. Oh boy... was Wednesday such a ride! Being this my third year of art fairs, I was surprised that I was accepted in! But Wednesday was my first $2000 day ever! Prints were flying out of my booth that day. It was difficult to enter in the invoices in Freshbooks. But... oh... was it so much fun! But Wednesday was followed up by three consecutive $1000 days!
Thank you to a late order of Tender Embrace # 7/125 selling for $275. That 24x24 frame is going to Boston. Oh the stories of where your art departs and finds a new home!I hope it makes the flight alright. But that late order put me ever so slightly over the $1K make on Saturday. Plus a Canadian bought my Lego minifigure Canadian Mountie print! And my neighbor's were congratulating me for a successful show. This was my highest art fair ever! And I hope to be back again next year!
