My First Art Show

September 29th, 2013 at 05:37 pm

I'm finally going to enter my first art show in two weeks with the hopes of winning first prize, which is $1,000 or $500. I can't remember and I don't have the entry form in front of me.

Sadly, one of the reasons I'm entering the show is because it's free. Am I that cheap that I have never entered a show because of an entry fee? That's kind of sad.

Anyhoo, in addition to entering the show, artists can also sell their prints. I have my square card reader ready to take accept credit card payment.

Tomorrow I'll go to Jerry's Art and buy some frames, a few mats and plastic archival sleeves.

This expense wasn't in the budget, so I'm not saving too much with this paycheck. Hopefully I will win 1st, 2nd or 3rd place and sell a few prints.

Should be interesting and fun!

    My daughter sold her art this summer at an art fair. No frames, just mat board for behind the art, put in a plastic sleeve/bag. Good luck at your sale!

    Naw not cheap to enter only shows that are free or really minimal fee! Photos are a TOUGH sell, everyone has a phone now right? If you're not making a living at it, just have fun and get a little recognition to boot. I love photography but knew as a teen it would be impossible to make a living at it. In my heart I still want to give it a go, and have entered a few shows costing nothing or maybe $2.50! and YES I've sold one over the years. YIPPEE.
