There are thousands of artists in the U.S. who participate in art fairs for years and years. There are many who drop out after a few years (it's a lot of work!). Then there are those who take their art fair experience to build their own business, leaving the street behind. A fair number have become show organizers: Jim Delutes in Colorado, Bonnie Blandford in Michigan, Donna Beaubien in Michigan, Bill Kinney in the East and Carla Fox in Oregon. We'll be hearing from these entrepreneurs: Carolyn Edlund, founder of Artsy Shark, a top ten art blog, who spent 20 years running a production studio making and selling jewelry, and now writes and consults on business topics for artistsDrew Hendrix, President of Red River Paper, founded in 1997 with over 40 years experience in fine papers that are integral to many art fair artistsLuke Block, a veteran of art fairs as a potter, who is part of the team at FlourishDisplays.comJeff Abele, GrandStandApps.com, a software developer focused on the art fair business who has developed a state-of-the-art app to enable artists and art fairs to connect with their audiencesMarissa Wagley of US Weight, a company that works with artist/inventor Jim Eaton to market the weights he designed for his art fair booth Learn how each of them took their life experiences and extended them to a new business.
