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.
In the beginning art fairs were created and artists and art buyers flocked to attend. You were one of them. Your mother and your friends thought your work was wonderful and maybe they were right, so off you went to the marketplace. How did it go? Was it a triumph or a humbling experience?

how they prepared
where they were, big or small fairs
how it impacted their lives
their biggest disappointments and their biggest surprises
learning from their own mistakes vs learning from other's mistakes
what they wish they had known then and how they used that information
the good, the bad and the really ugly
how to do three shows in three days and other extreme adventures

What does art mean to our nation? What are the implications of national monuments? Join us as art historian Bruce Cole, Senior Fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington D.C., talks about art and our national heritage.
From 2001 to 2009, Cole served as the Chairman of the National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH). Appointed by President George W. Bush and unanimously confirmed by the Senate in 2001 and again in 2005, Cole was the longest serving Chairman of the NEH. Under Cole's leadership, the NEH launched key initiatives, including We the People, a program designed to encourage the teaching study and understanding of American history and culture, and the Picturing America project, which uses great American art to teach our nation's history and culture in 80,000 schools and public libraries nationwide. He also created the NEH's Digital Humanities Initiative and Office, which made the Endowment a national leader in this new frontier of humanities access and knowledge. Under his tenure partnerships were developed with several foreign countries, including Mexico and China.
Born in Ohio, Cole attended Case Western Reserve University and earned a master's degree from Oberlin and a doctorate from Bryn Mawr. He is also a recipient of nine honorary doctorate degrees. For two years he was the William E. Suida Fellow at the Kunsthistorisches Institut in Florence. Cole has held fellowships and grants from the Guggenheim Foundation, the American Council of Learned Societies, the Kress Foundation, the American Philosophical Society, and the Center for Medieval and Renaissance Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. He is a corresponding member of the Accademia Senese degli Intronati, the oldest learned society in Europe. He has written fourteen books and numerous articles.
Today’s colleges are hammering down that ancient ivied wall that for years has separated academia from the bustling realms of business. Higher learning centers like The New Jersey Institute of Technology have traded in the old “Learn first – then live” traditions for fostering learning in midstream of entrepreneurial action. Host Bart Jackson is joined by featured guest Judith Sheft, NJIT’s Associate VP of Technology Development and together they discuss faculty/student ventures; new funding and incubation programs; entrepreneurial courses; and technology transfer. Tune in and learn the opportunities for both students and existing businesses to launch, grow and profit.

I have a special Giveawy for one guest!. So come out and while your're ask me about the 2015 Sister Circle Girlfriends Getaaway Weekend.
One of the forms of Integrity in Leadership shows up in being responsive and true. We say "Yes" when we mean it, and "No" when that is our truth.
So, why is it so difficult to find people who honor the RSVP request? Anyone else tired of scheduling an event and no one RSVP's? Maybe asking more than once for a response?
Yes, I'm guilty too, of failing to respond, waiting to check my calendar and then forgetting.
With so many forms of communication, it makes the process even more of a maze...let's talk about this lost art and how we can all be better at it.
How would you rate yourself as a listener in conversations about faith? Often times Christians can be arrogant and lack compassion when engaging others in apologetic conversations. However, 1 Peter 3:15 tells us to defend our faith with "gentleness and respect," and in our hearts "to honor Christ the Lord as holy." Tonight, Brandon and Jared talk about how and why Christians should approach these conversations with humility and kindess.
