Call for Artists, Making Money at Juried Art Fairs, Craft Shows and Festivals
Maybe I missed it but I couldn't find the discussion on What Are You Doing This Week-End, so I decided to start my own...on Friday I had a consultation with my Art Mentor, Andrea Rosenfeld. For those of you not familiar with her, she started the Detroit Art and Business Institute (D.A.B.I.) and works with artists to help them with the business side of art, something I clearly need help with...so with her good advice, I'm off and running. In fact, I was contacted on Saturday by someone I shared a booth with last Fall/Winter who wants me to come back again this year.
On Thursday (I know it's not officially the week-end but close enough), I visited Pewabic Pottery in Detroit with a new Meet-Up group, (Detroit Entrepreneurs) I joined recently. I hadn't been there in years and it was a fantastic experience. Started by Mary Chase Perry Stratton over a century ago, it remains one of the longest running and most prestigious of it's kind in the world. If you live in the area or nearby, you owe it to yourself to visit this unique and awe-inspiring gem.
On Saturday, I joined my fellow knitters and crocheters at The Detroit Knitting and Crochet Club (another Meet-Up group) at the Main Branch of the Library in Detroit's Midtown. What a wonderful mix of creative and interesting women with varying levels of expertise and artistic leanings.
So, how about you...I suppose you're all busy doing shows this time of year, let us know how it went.
