Most shows, unfortunately, don’t tell us how they are using the jury
photos. Is it part of the jury process? Is it to see how we will
look at their show? What?
Put your best foot forward here. I assume they will jury my booth
with my work. I want the work and booth to look good together. I
once helped jury a small show in the NW. We had accepted a 2-d artist
who did large abstracts. Her booth slide showed small fussy paintings
of flowers. There was much concern which art would show up at the
show, or a mish mash of both. She was in a tie with some other 2-d
artists. I think she was juried out.
Then there was the booth shot, done on a hot day. The sides of the
tent were rolled up to let the breezes thru. The most prominent
feature of the image were the brite blue porta potties behind the
booth. And I could go on.
Our favorite booth shot was one that had been set up in a foot of
snow. Obviously it was not at a show. But the artist had given us a
great booth shot, he was in. Porta potty man was out.
You are displaying your business to the show. Present your booth as
it will look at their show, and make it look as professional as
