Soooooo, it's the time of year when I'm looking over shows for next year and have decided to get serious. This involves picking out good shows where I feel I may have a market. There are 2 outdoor shows that I will be applying for, but I just can't shake the feeling that I may become a carny!! Outdoor shows are a very different vibe than indoor, and a lot more "interesting folk" seem to participate. Oh well, I'm sure I'll look great in shorts, man socks and sandals:) ...I'm not meaning to insult, just taking advantage of a picturesque stereotype:)
Here's the dilemma. Most of the outdoor shows have no power available for lighting, which causes me some trauma. I would be inclined to just say no to doing them, but I have seen some great artisans outdoors before, so it must be viable. If anyone has any ideas for outdoor lighting that does not involve a generator, please let me know.
I'm also well aware that I may have some issues with humidity due to the nature of my framed mini's. Again, many artists do outdoor shows, so I guess the secret is a good tent?
Anyway, I'm hopeful to hear of any tips that readers can give me based on experience. Please don't direct me to tips on the internet....I've read them all:) I would love to do a post one day on really practical tips for shows, so if anything is heart-stopping I will certainly print it and credit you.
