    Artists, Art Fairs & ZAPP®

    in Art

    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.

    We'll share the survey answers on:
    what makes a show "Best" why people say they attend an art fair how art fair goers find out about shows to attend why they don't attend shows they used to love how far they travel to art fairs their suggestions for show organizers   The Best Art Fairs Awards is the first national online survey of the nation’s juried fairs, designed to reward those festivals that create opportunities connecting artists and communities to celebrate the arts.
