On February 27, I’ll be participating in a Pop-Up Art Show and Sale at a local mall, along with some other colleagues from the Oakville Art Society.
This event marks a number of “firsts” for me:
My first pop-up show
My first time selling art locally
My first time selling the “Mini Vacations” series
And every time I look at the “To Do” list for this event, I get very, very “firsty”… for a big goblet of red wine! Nervous, yup. Excited, oh yeah. Feeling overwhelmed, uh huh.
This isn’t a big show, but as my first, it’s probably a very good thing that it’s small. I’m hoping to collect as much feedback as I can, so that I may learn how to offer and present my art better, for bigger shows I’d like to participate in this spring and summer.
For those of you who are veterans of the local artisan/art/craft show scene, what’s the one or two best pieces of advice you could pass along to this newbie?
And if you happen to find yourself in the Greater Toronto Area on the 27th, I’d love to see you!
