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

Prizewinners at Madison and Cherry Creek 2018

July brings the BIG shows and if you're not doing an art fair this month (especially if you live in the heart of the country) you probably aren't too serious about this business. (Just my opinion).

Art Fair on the Square in Madison, WI, hosts nearly 500 artists on the state capitol courthouse square and the crowds show up! For some artists this is their best show of the year and getting in is paramount to their yearly success. Here are this year's prizewinners who will be returning again next year:
