Your invitation to a Mock Jury - October 17 - Novi, MI

Mock Jury - Rock Financial Showplace, Novi, Michigan - October 17 - 9 am

As a benefit to participating in the Great Lakes Art Fair, Connie Mettler, publisher of and, will be doing a special presentation for the artists at 9am on Sunday morning October 17 entitled “The Digital Jury Process.”

Connie will speak about the digital jury process, hold a mock jury, view digital images of the participating artists, discuss how to improve your digital images for the jury process, and do a critique of booth images along with a discussion on why booth images are important to the jury process.

Connie-have you ever thought of doing this presentation on the east coast? Would love to hear what you have to say, but unable to travel to the mid-west for a one day presentation. We did attend Amy's presentation about 2 years ago. It was beneficial-but now we need to move to the next level (a more interactive presentation of critiques/advise). Thank you. And thanks for having this forum, it is so informative :-)

The show was okay. I'm thinking that there are no reviews because everyone is too polite to say it didn't absolutely rock. Such nice people, these Insiders. There must have been at least 10-15 of them there, that identified themselves to me. The lovely weather and the run up to the election probably affected the gate, but overall I'd say there were decent sales all around and some happy people. The attendance wasn't quite as good as in the Spring -- but then we were fighting the weather, the Big Ten football games, etc. There were more enthusiastic patrons in the Spring -- so we have hopes for that one to really do the job.

The talk went well. We had a good time and even the old-timers had things to learn. I wish you had been able to be there. Anyone out there want to tell Warren how this went?

I've had several requests for a similar review, Ann Marie. Perhaps next time we'll video was very practical nuts and bolts.

Isn't the election in two weeks yet? Or was there another election during the show? Is there any gate totals on the attendance?
