What Do You Need To Do To Be In An Art Fair?

April 01, 2019

Art Fair Season is not that far away. Many people have asked over the years, what do you need to do to get ready for a show, just come and set up your tent and jewelry? So, I decided to share with you what I need to do to get accepted into an art fair.

There is a process to follow and deadlines to meet when applying for art fairs. I am required to submit an application along with four photos of my jewelry and a booth photo. Along with that, I need to include a jury fee. Yes, I need to pay to apply for an art fair. A committee reviews all the applications by looking at the photos and then determines who will be selected to participate. If I am selected, I submit the payment for my booth fee. You may be wondering how much the fees are. The jury fees can run anywhere from $15 - $50. For the shows I have particapated in, the  booth fees range from $75 - $300. The larger art fairs, that run 3-4 days, cost a lot more.

 

I submitted the above photo for my booth photo. This photo can't have any signage that shows my name or business. I just redid my booth display last spring. Since I need to submit a booth photo, it is important to periodically update my booth photo with my latest jewelry collections. Also, everything in my booth needs to be sturdy enough to withstand the strong wind that goes along with outside shows.

 

When deciding on which four jewelry photos to submit, it is important to include my best work. This is kind of like when you want to look your best for a wedding, a hot date, an interview or a big meeting. I want everything to look as perfect as possible. Also, the photos that I submit, should be a sampling of the womens jewelry that I will be selling. 

I hope to see you at some of my Live Events or Art Fairs if you are in the area. If not, you can check me out at CreativeJewelry by Marcia

Benefits of Wearing Black

January 14, 2020

Do you have any black in your wardrobe?  If the answer is yes, you're in luck. Black works with every hair color and skin tone. That isn't true for all colors. Black is the most flattering of all the colors. As we age, our bodies aren't the same as they were in our 20's. Why not take advantage of the color that is more flattering.
