6 Miss-Takes to Avoid at Art Fairs

Be ready or stay home.

Estimated reading time: 3 minutes

In Canada, people joke that there are only two seasons – Winter and Patio.

To be more inclusive of you my dear readers, I’m hereby shrinking winter with online art competitions and expanding Patio to include art fairs.

Guest Blogger John Math, Light Space & Time Online Art Gallery has already shared his observations about six mistakes artists make in art competitions

In exchange, I wrote a post for his blog on the miss-takes artists makes in art fairs. Read how to fix those here: 

If you’ve never entered art fairs or online competitions, here are a few articles I’ve written:

Let me know how I can help you make the entry process easier and less painful. The first 15 minutes is on me.
