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

The artists of the Downtown Naples Festival of the Arts

I've often wondered why a list of artists for an art show can be tough to find until you actually get to the festival. They have worked hard, and we want to thank you for participating! AT the NAA, we're always striving to improve things, even if it's in small ways at first. If you think continuing to have this list available and publicized is a good thing, let us know!

The artists of this show (many who are participants on AFI) are listed below, and we can't wait to see what they've got on display this weekend! To attract buyers, we've been promoting it in the local paper and other print/radio media (maximizing ad dollars through sponsorships), on facebook, through email marketing, and other word-of-mouth generating methods. Below the list is our ad. Feel free to share the image with your Naples customers to let them know you'll be on Fifth Ave South for the street's last festival of the season.

OMG. Holly, that is scary stuff. Thank you for sharing and I'll add NAAI Think Tank to my contacts.

What a progressive resource! Thank you for sharing the link, Becky. I would love to have the form; getting the data together this way will be helpful in our info compilation, ongoing measurement and future artist communications as well.

Click on Art Show Statistics on the right.  I can send you a form to complete if it would help.

I have not been deeply involved for long, so first, these are things I would like to research with our Festivals Director. That will help me understand a baseline of our process and what works/what needs improvement before I attempt discussing more details.  I can see how that information would be helpful in clarifying the jurying process and decisions that are made regarding the make up of each show. Thank you for asking! Where have you been reporting your findings?

Comment by Becky Bibro on March 21, 2012 at 10:47am

Kathleen would you be willing to share the number of applicants in each medium that you guys received for this show, as well as the number of re-invited artists?  I have been helping with compilation and analysis on data like this, and can easily estimate the number based on your overall total applications, but it is much more accurate if the show shares the actual information.  Few shows are providing this, your show's transparency in this effort will not go unnoticed.
