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

It's January. For most of us in this business we are not in Florida or Arizona, happily greeting customers and showing off our work. I hope you're taking advantage of this lull. So far I've posted two useful things you can do for yourself during these days. 

Here is #3, something to do for your fellow artists:

Here we are in the winter lull between the big shows and I'm asking you for a favor. 


I'm sure you remember when you started in the business the helpfulness of other artists and the great tips you picked up "behind the booth." This was invaluable information that has built your business. Any chance you can "pay it forward?" Help your fellow artists?


Wlll you post a 2017 show review or two on The reviews are coming in steadily but yours would be so appreciated. 


We've overhauled the site and it is new, improvedeasier and fasterto leave feedback! 


Here's how easy:

  1. Click this link 
  2. Fill in the blanks - about 10 of them
  3. Sit back and receive the good karma. You've done your good deed for the day! (and we all love you for it!)

As always, wishing you fulfilling days, every day and a fulfilling 2018.


P.S. Here are some of the reasons artists have told us they post reviews:
I saw that there were no comments or reviews posted and I felt that this was a good show that deserved a review.
I always review the big shows. More people should.
I think it helps to know about shows. and hope others will post what shows they do as well.
To help other artists.
I've learned a lot from reading this site and wanted to reciprocate.

Hi, Connie,

I've posted reviews of several shows on the blog portion of the site but not 'art show review'.  I don't think that was available.  Should I restate my comments in the art show review section?

If you would, Don. That would be great. It is outreach to all artists who do shows. Unfortunately, they don't ALL show up here on AFI. :(
