The great thing about doing an art fair with a gallery is that apart from making, labelling and perhaps packing the work you don’t have to do a thing.
After running gallery/open house type events this is such a relief. Even if you don’t send out a single invite people still come. No cooking or bottle-washing either, let alone transporting, hanging, labelling, invigilating, admin, publicity, private view and heaven knows what. Not to mention clleaning the loo.
If you look hard you can see my Universal Origins, Near Seven Sisters and Cliftonville Tea-Gown.Work was being regularly moved around and rehung.
Mind you, one pays a hefty commission. But I’m inclined to think it’s worth every penny. I haven’t had the feedback yet from the Affordable Art Fair though….
