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

UPDATE: Juried Art Services & Amdur Art Fairs in Chicago

From Amy Amdur and Amdur Productions:
UPDATE January 13, 2009 4 pm cst: JAS reports that the damage to the server caused by an unprecedented demand on their system January 12 was beyond repair and an entirely new server must be utilized and all data migrated to the new server and system. This will take 3 days. JAS hopes and plans to have the system operational by Saturday, January 17. When the server is ready, JAS will send an email announcement to all on its email list. Amdur Productions will send an email out to its list as well. Additionally, the home page will announce that the JAS system is operational. Deadlines are extended to January 23, 2009 and ALL LATE FEES ARE WAIVED. There will be no special handling fees, nor any additional fees for applying up through January 23. We are so glad that so many artists are applying to our 12 shows, and want to assure you that we have room for more than 2000 artists at our summer festivals. We are so sorry for any inconvenience this may have caused. Please feel free to call the office between 9 am and 5 pm central time Monday through Friday, or email me at with any questions. Amy Amdur, Amdur Productions

That's some server crash! Hope that they are able to restore previous user profiles, data, images, and applications, or they will definitely have a big mess on their hands! I've been through it on their side of the server, it's painful.

I really don't understand what happened here, Jim. Can you explain it simply enough for me to understand?
