I just received the acceptance e-mail from one of the top 100 art shows in the US, Arts and Apples. It takes place in Rochester, Michigan in September and draws over 200,000 visitors. I was not expecting to be accepted so I put it out of my mind until the e-mail. There are hundreds of artisans attending and most return every year so open booth space is limited and new applicants's work is carefully reviewed by a jury.
Booth space is expensive, $450, but artisans on an average bring in $2500; not a bad return on investment, if one can only afford the investment.
This painting is one I'm currently working on
