I'm trying to decide whether to do the Sausalito Art Festival or Art in the Pearl in Portland over labor day weekend.  I've done Sausalito before and have done fairly well but never the Portland…Continue

Dennis Angel replied to Darlene L Sours's discussion New here and hoping to get enough information on set up to hit the Fall Art Fair circuit
"Hi Darlene, Your idea of visiting an art festival and talking to artists is excellent.  Having done Cherry Creek several times I can attest to the fact that this would be a wonderful venue to visit and to interact with artists.  I did this…"
Dennis Angel commented on Connie Mettler's blog post Next podcast? Using Facebook to sell your art - Part 2
"I agree with many of the previous comments.  It's a fascinating topic but it feels a bit like a set up.  How can your guest provide real, solid, specific information without undercutting his own mission of selling his Facebook…"

Dennis Angel replied to Fletcher Dean's discussion jury images - consistency or variety?
"Definitely DO NOT apply with different bodies of work.  In the better shows the jurors will interpret that as being inconsistent and you won't be taken seriously.  If you have different work, your best option is to submit two separate…"

Dennis Angel replied to Fletcher Dean's discussion Changing mediums and booth shot
"For any decent shows you'll have to have a new booth shot.  Encaustic (wax based painting?) is very different in appearance then photography because of it's rich texture.  The consistency in framing isn't enough.…"

Dennis Angel replied to Edgar Williams's discussion Do Low Prices Upset Other Artists?
"There's a lot of considerations with pricing.  I do colored pencil drawings and my originals range from $450 up to $3,000.  Even at shows where it's rare to sell a higher end piece, this price range validates the price of my…"

Dennis Angel replied to Edgar Williams's discussion Trying to get accepted to my first show...
"Consistency at the show will depend on the festival. For a lot of shows people will just buy it if they like it. At higher end shows (Cherry Creek for instance) many buyers are a bit more astute and will be looking for that consistency or…"

Dennis Angel replied to Edgar Williams's discussion Trying to get accepted to my first show...
"Hi Edgar, I don't think that it's a matter of the work not being good enough but rather an issue of consistency.  Although your work is all nonrepresentational the styles are too varied.  The second image (and imo the best one)…"

Dennis Angel replied to Chuck Hinrichs Jr.'s discussion Booth Images
"I agree with everything Larry said.  I also think that the booth is too busy (too much work).  I would eliminate the entire bottom row and hang the work with more space in between.  I think it would make the booth look cleaner. …"

Sausalito or Art in the Pearl?

I'm trying to decide whether to do the Sausalito Art Festival or Art in the Pearl in Portland over labor day weekend.  I've done Sausalito before and have done fairly well but never the Portland show.  I'm a 2D artist specializing in drawing.  If anyone has any feedback (especially about the Portland show) I'd greatly appreciate it.Here's a link to my web site:www.dennisangel.comThanks!See More

Thanks, Christina.

It's fun to be back in the mix.  I did a lot of festivals back in the 90's and am trying my new work in a few festivals out west.  Hope all is well with you and that your Holiday season is peaceful and happy!
