Art on the Avenue

Art on the Avenue was yesterday and I thought it was a great experience. However, I'm not sure if I'll do any outdoor festivals in the future. If I do, I'll have to work on building my inventory up. Also, I think I should have more prints of my artwork as opposed to actual works of art. I noticed that many of the people liked buying cheaper items--such as my magnets and cards. I thought it was overall, a successful day, and I enjoyed hearing what people thought of my work, as well as sharing it with more people in the community. It's been quite an experience, searching for the right market for my work.

Below I have a few pictures of my booth during the event:

your booth looked wonderful! outdoor art festivals can be both fun and challenging - it's hard figuring out what people want to buy, or whether they're just browsing, and it seems to change from event to event. looks like you had a good time, and the weather was gorgeous!

it looks like you had a nice day and got some good ideas about the items people are more likely to purchase. i think the hardest things with these festivals is staying put in the booth all day ;).

Oh wow, you didn't have a roof over your head??? I'm glad it didn't rain on you. I've tossed around the idea of setting up an outdoor booth too, but not sure if I want to do it or not.

your booth looks so nice! i'm glad you enjoyed the experience. i've not done any festivals (yet) but i've heard that you need to have quite a variety of products and prices in order to be successful. you should look into licensing your work. that would be a great way to get ongoing revenues off of one original. good luck. your work is truly unique!

Megan, I hope you pass out cards with you blog url on them... it's fascinating to see your process, and it keeps people interested in your work. The booth looks great!
