New art fairs are necessary for the evolution of the art fair business because artists need new markets and even reliable shows sometimes don't continue to thrive.
We speak with 4 show directors who are developing events for their communities:
Rae Marie Schneider and Kim House, St. John's River Festival of the Arts in Sanford, FL, had solid community participation at their inaugural show in 2012. They'll talk about how they did it and their plans for 2013. Dennis Gorg, a 10 year event organizer who has a new show in June in St. Louis, MO, MidTown Taste ART FAIR. We'll learn how an experienced producer leverages his skills for a new event. Tim Reilly, is the director of The Cotton South Fine Art Festival in Madison, GA, debuting in September 2013. Still in the throes of filling his show, raising money and working with sponsors, we'll hear how a new director makes his plans. This show will be full of information for everyone thinking of starting a show with ideas for new show directors and will fill in the nuts and bolts of show development for artists as well who wonder where their application and booth fees go.
Established event promoters will enjoy the creative ideas that these people pull together to make their events a success for everyone involved.
Art fairs not working for you? Not getting into the shows where you know you can sell your work? Tired of being on the road? Looking for a new adventure?
Meet two painters who can say both yes and no to the questions above. Yes, the art fairs work but they wanted to try some new ideas for marketing their work. Where did they turn? Social media!
In March, Carrie Jacobson, a painter from Connecticut, drove from Virginia to Arizona, painting, doing a show and visiting her dad. She found buyers who paid for the whole trip in advance and she had more paintings to sell when she reached her destination. Painter Scott Coleman from Georgia has been doing art fairs forever (I met him at my first art show back in the good old days), but in recent years has been using his blog and Facebook to sell "a painting a day." He sold 365 "Daily Cupcake" paintings in a year and a half. Imagine -- no rejection letters, no booth fees, no storms, just creating art -- and oh, Marketing! Remember, being an artist is 50% creating and 50% marketing.
Is there some inspiration here for your art marketing?
Storms are no strangers to the nation's art fairs. Show organizers and artists plan for inclement weather as a matter of course. In the aftermath of the nation's worst storm in history, Hurricane Sandy, people on the East Coast are working toward reestablishing equilibrium in all areas of their lives. The heavy economic toll continues to be counted. This coming weekend's Fine Arts & Crafts Show at the Westfield (NJ) Armory has been cancelled by the National Guard. How does this

Learn from other artists about their experiences with both sides of the jurying process. What to expect, fees, rules and juriors.
Artists, critic, and the public weigh in on the process of jurying art. How do we as artists perceive the process? What is the public’s role? Or should they have one? What is the curator’s role? Do you self jury your art prior to submitting to a call for entry?

Most artists have made their peace with the digital upload systems, www.Zapplication.org, www.JuriedArtServices.com and www.EntryThingy.com. If you want to participate in the better shows you sign up and upload your images for the jury.
But how did this get started and what is the relationship of the individual artist or individual art fair with these systems?
Here are our experts:
photographer Larry Oliverson who was instrumental in introducing the concept of online applications to the art fair business by bringing artists, art fairs and Westaf (the agency which provides ZAPP) together painter Kathleen Eaton who is an artist member of the ZAPP Oversight Committee and is writing a book about the history of art fairs Leah Charney, Manager of ZAPP®, oversees the ZAPP product and the 350+ clients, 570+ events and more than 60,000 active artists that use the system These guests have a long history with the organization and can provide both historical data as well as current operating information.
We'll discuss the myths and truths about:
how ZAPP has changed the art fair business ZAPP's relationship with the shows best practices on preparing your application and making digital systems work for you what an "artist advisor" does ZAPP is going to be around for a long time and understanding its processes and using it to its fullest is advantageous to everyone in the art fair business.

In a business full of taking chances the first big challenge an artist has is to make the jury cut at the shows. After all, if you can't get into the show you aren't in business.
