PODCAST: How I Built a New Business out of my Art Fair Career


There are thousands of artists in the U.S. who participate in art fairs for years and years. There are many who drop out after a few years (it's a lot of work!). Then there are those who take their art fair experience to build their own business, leaving the street behind.

A fair number have become show organizers, including: Jim Delutes in Colorado, Bonnie Blandford and Donna Beaubien in Michigan, Bill Kinney in the East and Carla Fox in Oregon.

We'll be hearing from these entrepreneurs:

Carolyn Edlund of, Drew Hendrix of Red River Paper, Luke Block of Flourish Displays, Jeff Abele of and Marissa Wagley of US Weight, talking about the canopy weights artist James Eaton developed.
