Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
A fabulous party was held last night in Miami to unveil the poster for the Coconut Grove Arts Festival. It attracted celebrities, socialites and politicians with excellent coverage on the local news channels. If only all art fairs could do this kind of PR to attract the attention to their upcoming events. Interestingly, the poster designer is Guy Harvey, a well-known nautical artist, and not a participating artist as I believe it has been in the past.
The Grove continues to evolve as a master blend of commercialism and culture and changing clientele. Here's hoping the promotion brings to the event what the artists need: an interested art buying crowd to enjoy the entertainment, food, bayfront location, weather and fine offerings of the main attraction, the art.
Here's the story from the Coconut Grove Grapevine: http://coconutgrovegrapevine.blogspot.com/2011/01/this-years-arts-f...
They also have a poster unveiling at St. James. Do you know any other art fairs that do this?
