Art Festival Display Requirements…presenting your work with style, class & refinement.
Indoor Display Requirements
Your ultimate goal is to create an indoor gallery. Your display will not only add value to your art, 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 are not just buying your art, they are buying a piece of you.
For indoor events, all storage must be properly stored. Try not to 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. Carpet for the floor, an attractive fabric (as accent) and a plant or two are nice touches! Tables are not permitted in the art section.
2D Display Requirements:
For painters, photographers, mixed media artists, etc.
Your framing and matting should be in the same scheme. Take cardboard corners off of artwork during the show. Giclees must be professionally labeled as such. NO plastic bins for your prints. Have browse boxes or bins that either match your panels or are in the same fabric and color schemes. Try to have them free standing. Your walls should be covered, either with fabric or carpeting. No artwork on the floor; all work must be hung and displayed properly.
3D Display Requirements:
For Pottery, Ceramic, Raku, Glass, Wood, etc.
Different levels are the best to display pottery, ceramic, raku, glass, and wood. Make sure pedestals are painted an appealing color that enhances your work. If pedestals do not work for you, attractive shelving is another option. You should have panels or draped (walls) in your booth.
Jewelry Display Requirements:
Wood or mica units, with or without glass, with either coral, stones, or whatever ideas you can come up with to enhance your jewelry are the most attractive. Draped tables are not sufficient for the art shows.
Pipe and drapes are recommended if you do not have walls as part of your display. They can also be used to hide your storage area.
