How do I get into the good art fairs and how do I make money when I get there?
These are the universal questions that need to be answered for earning a living in the fine art and fine craft show business. Our expert guests Larry Berman and Bruce Baker lead the way.
Larry Berman lends his expertise on creating great images that will "wow" they jury and Bruce Baker shares his experience on creating a great booth and meeting the customer. Between the two you'll have the answers and there is only one thing left for you to do: make great art.
Larry Berman has a long career in photography, including being the staff photographer for the NY Nets. He has been exhibiting at art fairs for over 30 years and was one of the first to recognize the importance of digital imagery in the art fair business and was responsible for the ZAPP image format which displays all jury images the same size. He has built a career improving jury images for artists and/or photographing their artwork. He has held seminars on jury images and does consulting with artists and art fairs.
Bruce Baker began selling his jewelry at retail and wholesale shows in the 1980's. Taking what he learned there he began consulting full time in 2005 sharing his retailing and business experience with a variety of groups ranging from Artists, Main Street Merchants, to Farm Market vendors, conducting over 600 marketing and production related workshops in the past two decades. He leads training sessions helping artists be more productive and competitive in the international marketplace.
Between the two you'll have all the answers and there is only one thing left for you to do: make great art. Only you can do that part.

Do you trust the media to report the news accurately and fair. Some people have a problem with watching the news because they feel like its not being reported fairly. What makes a good news story? Everytime there is a break out in the black communities, the news have a camera crew there so fast to report it however, on the flip side of things, when there is a breakout in the white communities people feel as if its swept under the rug and kept quiet only getting minimum. How much affect does the media have on keeping negative stereotypical outlooks on the black communities. There is news that happes around us that we never have a clue about because it doesn't get reported. Did you know according to the Statisics under President Obama's Administrations in the last 2 years 49% of people killed by police were white, 30% were black. But this is not what is being reported on the news. This shows an unbalance and unfairness to the stories being reported. Some people feel this is what keeps the black communities oppressed, fighting, angry, bitter, and a sense of worthlessness because some people feel that police are only out here killing black people when in fact the percentage number shows that there are more whites that have been killed but why haven't we heard of these reporting Let's talk about this tonight on the K Smilez show with K Smilez and Angie B.
As part of my Disney trip planning I've discovered a lot of touring plans for places for the parks. They've been very helpful and so I thought it would be nice to do some touring plans for some of the places I've visited. While I've done an episode on the Iowa State Fair before, I hadn't done an actual plan where I go through and tell you how to tour the fair. That's what I'm going to do today, take you exactly where to go at the Iowa State Fair in Des Moines, Iowa. From the Big Boar to the Old Mill find out how to go to have the most fun at the Our State Fair because it's a Great State Fair!

Good evening friends and loyal listeners. If you listened to Friday's show, we had a spirited discussion of many issues. Today's show promises the same thing. They were all at the Iowa State Fair this past weekend. Aside from political messages, one might indulge in as many deep fried foods as you can imagine! Of course, if you have a problem with colesterol, I would not recommend it...lol. If you watched the weekend news shows, you know that two more names have been mentioned as possible Democratic candidates...Can you guess who they are??? Call us with your comments at 646-595-3247...and bring your coffee.

“Who made you judge and jury?”
It has been said that when you point a finger at someone they are several pointing back at you.
Many people use this verse in an attempt to silence their critics, interpreting Jesus’ meaning as “You don’t have the right to tell me I’m wrong.” They know that their actions don’t line up with the Word of God. but they don’t but feel you have the right to call them out, maybe they know something about you that don’t line up either.
