2 New 2017 Art Fairs - Will you Apply?
The guests: Samantha Saturn is reviving a popular Nashville, TN, art fair: American Artisan, June 16-18. The event was started in 1971 by her mother, Nancy, a retailer and pioneer in the contemporary craft movement. In its day it was "THE" show to do in Tennessee. It was restricted to 3D crafts and the 2D people were jealous they could not participate. It will be held in historic Centennial Park. Samantha grew up in the business booth sitting, checking in artists and managing the show. Louis Nunnelly,...

People are suprised that I even attempt the notion of doing it full time... without a pension!  We speak with art fair artists who actually pay the bills and make a living, BUT they do so without a pension or some other significant source of income. In other words, these are people who figured out how to be profitable at art fairs! Are there people like that? This is a ver...

Should I Open an Art Gallery?
The fastest way to earn money with your art is to participate in art fairs. The buyer enters your booth, loves the work, hands you the payment and your work has found a new home. It's not always that easy of course, but it has worked for years for thousands of artists.     Many artists have multiple streams of income including gallery representation, selling work online, image licensing, hosting studio tours, participating in small boutique events and being in gallery shows. How about your own gallery? T...
