    Keep them Coming Back - Marketing to the Art Fair Patron

    in Business

    The interested parties have come to your party: that Art Festival you have been planning and marketing for 364 days. How do you make sure they love the show, bring their friends, buy art, spread the word about what they found there and can't wait for next year?


    Sharon McAllister, Executive Director of ArtFest Fort Myers (FL) and Jenny Wright, Festival Director of The Woodlands Waterway Arts Festival (TX) join the conversation and share their best tips for building a memorable experience for their patrons.


    We'll learn about their decisions on:



    public relations
    marketing
    community relations
    sponsor building
    artist relationships
    plus what works and even more interestingly what they've done that doesn't work!


    Connie Mettler presents results from her 2014 Best Art Fair Survey of art fair buyers where she gathered data about what makes them come to a festival and why ... plus ... why there are formerly favorite shows that they no longer attend.


    Both of these events were chosen as Top 50 Events in the survey.

    Chicago's Black Business Radio Network


    (All Black! All News! All You!)


    This segment is Art and Social Justice Issues, a combination some listeners might not be aware of. My goal is to connect you to social justice issues through art. 


    On today's show, Mixing Art and Activism. What it is like to do both?, we will talking with a long time North Lawndale resident who is exactly that, an artist and activist.


    Paul Ramey, former resident of North Lawndale, tells what his current art show is about, what his most recent activism is- the Peace Walk he was on today.  We will ask Paul how he mixes art-making & activism. He will also introduce his idea for a plan he has to begin a non-profit organization to feed and clothe homeless individuals. Paul Ramey grew up in North Lawndale and is now an artist and activist. You can see art and activist in any of his works. 


    Thank you for listening to Art and Social Justice Issues. I'm Dianna Long and I am about connecting people to social justice issues through art.


    If you would like to sponsor one or our upcoming shows, please contact our show's Executive Producer at cesarquiroz379@gmail.com.

    Winners! 2015 "Best Art Fairs in America" Survey

    in Business

    ArtFairCalendar.com has just finished its 3rd annual "America's Best Art Fairs" survey and we announce the winners. Our survey is the only national online look at the country's juried art fairs and craft shows, designed to reward the festivals that create opportunities connecting artists and communities.


    We asked our mailing list of over 50,000 art fair patrons what was the best art fair in the country and had an amazing nationwide response. Nearly 90% of the respondents completed the lengthy 25 question survey and the answers were both expected and intriguing. 


    Listen to find out what the Top 50 shows in the country are as voted on by the people who attend them. Discover their choices for the best regional fairs, best urban fair, best small market show and the best cities for art fairs.


    We'll share the survey answers on:



    what makes a show "Best"
    why people say they attend an art fair
    why they don't attend shows they used to love
    suggestions for show organizers


    Lynn Smith, vice chair of the Old Town Art Fair in Chicago, will give her insights on how the fair garners so much enthusiasm throughout the greater metropolitan area, making it a "must attend" event. Art buyers from Florida and Ohio will also join us to tell us why they attend art fairs and buy art.


    ArtFairCalendar.com's mission is to promote the American tradition of art fairs by showcasing events where art collectors find hand-crafted, one-of-a-kind fine work and encourage the interaction of client and creator.

    SDG 229 Do you want God to be fair or good?

    in Spirituality

    Matthew 20:1–15


    So which is it for you? Do you want God to be good or do you want God to be fair?


    Well, please consider the following:


    We are saved by grace and grace alone, yet some "believers" even those in positions of leadership do not understand this sacred truth and even laugh at the gospel of grace.


    But remember that Paul said in Galatians 1:6-9 KJV [1] I marvel that ye are so soon removed from Him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: [7] Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. [8] But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. [9] As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.


    Last week I shared with you the truth tempered in love, and warned you to beware of a false gospel that being preached in a ministry I helped found.


    So do you want God to be fair or good?


    Well I guess that all depends on what you believe about The Gospel of Christ.  Is it grace and grace alone or is it grace plus works?


    Well if your answer’s grace and grace alone then I know that you know and you're thanking God daily for being so good.


    But if you think your salvation depends upon grace and works then I suppose you’d probably want God to be fair.  After all you earned it right?


    In today’s message we’ll look at 5 incredible truths contained in the story of the man and his workers in the vineyard and by the end of this message I pray that you see why it's better for God to be good rather than fair.
