what would i do without orchid?! i feel like my posting frequency
has gone up by about 500% of late. i only hope that one day i can be
as much use to all the newbies as you have all been to me.
i’m about to apply for my first “show” and by that i mean a large
retail show that features many artists and designers over the course
of a weekend.
as part of the application (which is due monday because i found out
about this very late in the process), i am supposed to submit an
image of my “booth”. since this is my first show, i don’t have a
booth. i realize that i will need to have a booth, but i’m not
entirely sure what is typical, expected or suggested.
so the first question is, any suggestions on how i can put this
image together in a way that might not completely turn off the jury
committee? i have some interesting stands that i’ve made myself over
the years for a couple gallery shows that i’ve done, i can use
those, but if i don’t have a photo of an actual “booth”…
the second question is, assuming that i do get into the show, i have
about 3 months to assemble such a booth. i have some wild pie in the
sky dreams about custom cabinets on wheels that i would love to have
built, but i think that’s going to be a bit out of the price range
for my first show.
i’d love to hear any ideas that people have, how different people
have approached the problem, etc.
many many thanks in advance,
