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

I just received the result from the St. Louis Mock Jury and wanted to share my observations with anyone who might be interested.

To those who have been following my earlier blog:

I don't jury with the images that benefit from a great title, but I do jury with images that are distinctly different from "same-old, same-old".

Here is the response I plan to send the directors of the show:

<"I have to tell you, I'm disappointed with the response from the juror, or were there more than one?  I don't know.
"Blending images from the real world, I create a new reality existing only in my imagination. My goal is to seduce the observer, however briefly, into thinking such a scene may actually exist."
Here is the Juror's comment:
"Are these digitally altered from originals or taken by the artist?  If so. then photography is the category
 if applying to St. Louis."
Digital Art category.  Why does the juror ask the question and then assume the answer that puts me in the wrong category?  Why doesn't he assume "digitally altered" like the category states?
..seduced... into thinking such a scene may actually exist" prove the effectiveness of my art?

I received the initial Zapp invitation to apply for the Mock Jury while I was sitting at my computer and immediately applied.

It was stated on Zapplication:

10)     For those applicants not able to join us in person the jurors comments will be emailed to you.

I have not received any sort of emailed Juror comments or any communications as of yet. Has anyone else received any email feedback?

Follow up...I received a phone call a little while ago from Laura Miller with St Louis Art Fair after she read my post here on Art Fair Insiders (shows us how valuable Art Fair insiders is) and Laura mentioned  that they had emailed the mock jury results to me several times using my Zapplication email but apparently they did not come through. I gave her another email address and immediately received the Mock Jury results...Thanks Laura..! Your professionalism, follow-up and concern is top notch...
