From Jack Busa, Chief Creative Executive -
"We will listing the categories that most fairs use but not limiting the number. This process sometimes allows for very good artists to not be accepted because their category is full and other media, with maybe less interesting work, is still being promoted. Given that it is inside and electricity is available, there is the opportunity for under showcased art in digital or kinetics to be shown. Given the genesis of the fair by artists and patrons, the key consideration will be the work and the creative process. There is a difference between artists who are creative, those who are artistic and those which are both. While we need to have and will have balance, we will also must try not to "lockout" deserving artists such as yourself.
We do not require white tents for a homogeneous look, after all, you are not all the same. There are not just parallel rows of artists. The show is laid out in a grid with small conclaves of artists surround by walkways. This optimizes corners and end-caps, and allows patrons to have a gestalt of your work.
You can no longer be just an artist, you need to be an artist/curator and entrepreneur. Your assigned space is yours to design as you want to represent you and your work. The most successful artists understand that for less than the price of a one-time quarter page ad in a local newspaper they can create a 3D ad of their work and themselves. They have incorporated the tools necessary to develop a client base and future commission work. They have taken advantage of art/entrepreneurship courses and are marketing themselves. This show, unlike almost any other, created for individual artists, is designed for you to do that."
