Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
A sad story here, something that artists rarely hear about, the background of finding the money to host art fairs. Especially the larger events, there is no way that booth fees and application fees pay for the events to be held.
The story cites the added security costs because of the shooting at the nearby Gilroy Art Festival last summer. In addition, Louis Briones, executive director for the nonprofit Sausalito Art Festival Foundation is quoted as saying:
“In less than three years we’ve seen production costs double,” he said. “In 67 years, this first year that its not happening. Some years it’s gotten bigger, other years it’s gotten smaller. It has changed dramatically in other ways, but this is the first year we as a board decided to take a look at the entire picture to come up with a better plan.”
