Artifacts Rants Shows Blog Etsy Shop Wood My Story

Going for bigger, more ambitious shows this year!!

Hard to believe, my 7th season of showing work at area art/craft fairs. What have I learned? Avoid all shows that are not handmade only; shun shows where the main focus is something else (music, antiques, beer, even wine); stay clear of Avant Garde shows; go for shows where art is more prominent than craft; shows with lots of out-of-state artists (e.g. Akron Arts Expo) are almost always great.
