I happened to read a face book comment the other day that was very disparaging of art fairs. This artist was bitter because she felt show producers were making the big money while artists were taking the brunt of expenses. You can look at this subject from the artist's perspective and from the producers'. Let's do that.
From the Producers' Perspective:
Beginning art show participants need to learn the ropes before they start selling very much, but a veteran artist can sometimes net thousands at a single show if their work is priced right
And, that of course, depends on how salable the art is.
