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.

ArtFairCalendar.com has just finished its 2nd annual "America's Best Art Fairs" survey and we announce the winners. This is the only national online survey of the country's juried art fairs and craft shows, designed to reward the festivals that create opportunities connecting artists and communities to celebrate the arts.
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 20 question survey and the answers were both expected and intriguing.
Not surprisingly: people love to attend art fairs and many travel long distances to do so. The overall conclusion is: Art is Alive and Well in America and attendance at the nation's shows is proof of that.
Listen to find out what the Top 50 shows in the country are as voted on by the people who attend them and collect art. Find out which they have chosen as 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
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

Tonight we address the IRS and its woes, scandals and infamous reputation.
When talking of this American Gestapo we cannot ignore America's desire for a more simple and easy to understand tax code.
You want simple, easy, fair? .... I give you the fair tax.
Villianized for its fairness, misrepresented for its danger to established power and over-complicated for its simplicity, the Fair Tax is the answer to so much that ails us in America today.
Splash talks about the basics, the benefits and the need for something as middle class friendly as The Fair Tax.
We will of course revisit the Budget Deal in potential peril and have more on the CIA Terror uproar.
All this plus the news of the world in general on tonight's show.
In this segment of the D-spot meet artists who have used their dreams in their chosen work. Meet painters, poets and musicians who have received images, words and musical scores in dreams and who have practiced the 'art of recollection' to turn their dreams into reality. Hosted by Poet and Writer Joan Gelfand, this show will include a call-in period for questions and answers.
What is fair, what is just, what is equal? Why do so many miss the mark? Why do people think diversity (i.e. the clashing and chatotic mixing) is a good thing? They think so because (other than those who abuse it to gain a political edge) it resembles teh truth but is wide of that truth. Why do people think micro nutrients are better than fish oil for eye health? How doI relate this to health? Tune in to find out!
Tonight David Dees returns to the show.
Many know of and have seen David’s political art as his work has received enormous world wide attention by projecting the truth through his world of illustration.
Uncensored Magazine named David 'the most controversial artist in the world today', and radio talk show host Dr. Bill Deagle, calls Dees the 'Nikola Tesla of political art'.
For this discussion David will walk us through select pieces of his art and take us behind the scenes and into his creative world as he offers his insights and opinions on the challenges confronting humanity across the planet.
