Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
In considering whether or not to apply to an art fair, every seasoned exhibitor will tell you to check out the details. Look for the red flags of warning. Interestingly, this one came to my inbox this morning, and they helpfully even already had it in red text. How convenient.
ARTIST APPLICATION DEADLINE
EXTENDED TO DECEMBER 19, 2011!
I've seen more than a few artfairs in my time, and experience tells me that when a show "extends" the application deadline--there's something wrong.
Possibly an exception: a recent facebook "posting error" of deadline time (supposedly) was the reason given for the recent Cherry Creek extension. The difference? They opened it up for three hours to give the mislead ones a small window of opportunity to mend their ways.
But the above included note in red--it's a mall show--in February, no less. And they're extending the deadline out another week?
You may read into it what you want, but I've already done my reading. I'd say buyer beware.
Have a lovely day!
