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

Ron Mellott, long-time photo/artist, needs financial help from us, the Art Fair community.  Suffering a near collapse at his last art fair, he was helped by neighbors to pack-up.  Seeking medical attention, he was checked into the hospital and under-went triple by-pass surgery on his heart.

Having invested jury and show fee money for a full summer schedule he finds several shows he contacted have graciously refunded his booth fees, but with no income on the horizon until maybe September, and bills to pay, he really needs our help to maintain his residence and keep from going deep into debt.

I remind you, he is the one who has stood up for other artists in need.  See this posting from several years ago:

Now he needs help.  I started with a $50 donation to his PayPal account.  Please consider a like donation for a veteran artist in need!

Go to PayPal and log in or sign-up for an account.  On the top line click on "Tools" and click on "Send Money".  Copy and Paste his email address in the blank space.

Be sure to click on "Sending to a Friend" so there is no transaction fee charged.

If you don’t have a PayPal account, you can send a donation directly to him at:

Ron S. Mellott; 4909 South Victor Pike: Bloomington, IN 47403

Thank you for your attention....

Oh, no!. Thank you for posting this, RC. Ron has been a friend and mentor to other artists for a very long time and has made a lot of contributions to this website. I'm heading to PayPal now and will share this info on all of our networks.
