    My first art fair: A zero or a hero?

    in Art

    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?


    A panel of beginner and experienced artists from various media discuss their "first time." What you will learn:



    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
    their #1 tip for a first time show

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


    Laura Berarducci from the Ann Arbor Convention & Visitors Bureau also reports on the economic impact of the Ann Arbor Art Fairs in that community. 


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

    Life Really Is Fair

    in Motivation

    How many times are we going to allow ourselves to settle for the excuse life isn't fair before we change something? Can you honestly come up with real reasons to accept that things work out in ways you don't want, in ways you don't expect? You can't always have your way, just like you won't always not have your way. Everyone gets their turn, thats life. 


    I know things don't always go the way we plan, but we have to remember its not because God doesn't like us or is mad at us. Its because God has to make sure everyone is happy, and sometimes in order to make sure someone else gets what they want, we won't get what we want.


    And, thats the definition of fair. To make sure everyone gets their own chance. Today might be her turn, tomorrow his, and the next day yours. You never know what day is going to be your day. 


     


    During and after the show, use the #lifeisfair for live tweeting with Francesca Reicherter!

    The Druth About... Jury Nullification

    in Politics

    On this week's episode, Dru will discuss the concept of Jury Nullification and what it means to Americans. 


    Jury Nullification is the process by which a jury finds a defendant not guilty of a crime which he is clearly guilty of due to their dislike of the law violated or because of exigent circumstances surrounding the case. 


    We are going to examine why this is important to American society and how it can be used to ensure Freedom in the United States. 


    Join us at 9:00 Eastern / 6:00 Pacific time and be part of the discussion.  Listeners can call into the show at (347) 857-4397 with questions or comments.

    Let's Start an Art Fair!

    in Art

    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.
