I am a retired doctor who is taking his photography hobby to the next level. In the last few months, I created a Web site ( https://www.eclecticphotoart.com/) to show some of my images, and started a comapny (Eclectic Photo Art, LLC) to market my work. On Saturday and Sunday, Aug 11-12, I'll be exhibiting at my very first art fair---the Monroe Fine Art Fair. When it is over and done, I'll write a blog sharing my experience (good and bad) with this. Since I'm starting from scratch, this is certainly a loss-leader for the foreseeable future. However, it is keeping me busy.
Thank you so much Connie! I am looking forward to spending time learning about the art fair scene as I haven't been exhibiting for many years now and am hoping to return this fall. Looking for a good match in my area.
Thank you for the warm welcome, Connie! I have recently completed my very first art festival and think it was a moderate success (I sold six pieces). I have applied to four additional shows for 2019 so, wish me luck!
This is definitely the place for that, Sue. Use the "search" box, upper right hand corner, to find topics you're interested in: how to put up a tent, how to talk to customers, supplies needed for an art fair, etc. It's pretty much all here.
