Art Festival Display Requirements
…presenting your work with style, class & refinement.
All canopies are required to be white and able to withstand winds and rain. The best canopies for these conditions are Flourish, Showoff, Light Dome and the heavy EZ UPs. Do not have any metal exposed on your panels. No sale signs, or hand written signs are allowed. Your company name or artist name should look attractive - not too bold or obstructive Carpet for the floor, a nice fabric (as accent) and a plant or two are nice touches!
Your ultimate goal is to create a 10 x 10 outdoor gallery. Your display cannot only add value to your product but it will also be what brings the customer in to your booth. Make it different, make it classy, make it match your personality as an artist. They're not just buying your work, they're buying a piece of you.
2D Display Requirements:
For Painters, photography, mixed media, etc.
All framing and matting should be in the same scheme. Take cardboard corners off of artwork during the show. Must have at least 75% of originals hanging - nicely matted and framed. Giclees must be professionally labeled as such. NO plastic bins or Target, Wal-Mart browse bins for your prints. Have browse boxes that either match your panels or are in the same fabric and color schemes. (Try to have them free standing.) Putting them on tables loses the value of your prints. You must have panels (walls) in your booth, that must be covered with fabric or carpeting.
3D Display Requirements:
For Pottery, Ceramic, Raku, Glass, Wood, etc.
At different levels are the best to display pottery, ceramic, raku, glass, and wood. Make sure pedestals are painted a nice clean color that enhances your work. If pedestals do not work for you, nice shelving will do. Remember that these are art shows, so make the shelving attractive. You must have panels (walls) in your booth, that must be covered with fabric or carpeting.
Jewelry Display Requirements:
Anyone can put out tables and velvet necks for display. What we find most attractive is wood or mica units, with or without glass, with either coral, stones, or whatever ideas you can come up with to enhance your jewelry.
