Tips on organizing a juried Plein Air Event or Festival?
I am now working with a local art center to redesign their annual Plein Air Event, a fundraiser for the Center. I am looking for ideas, tips and recommendations on what makes for a great event. The vision is to build this event into a noteworthy regional -- even national -- event.
Sponsors are clearly key, as it allows for funds to pay respected jurors, attractive cash awards, marketing and all.
But artists need certain things....
- free or low cost housing
- info about the area
- places and times to network
Those attending need things too....
- free access
- range of sales prices
What attracts collectors?
When you have participated or attended such an event, what has made it worthwhile?
Any suggestions of events to visit on the West Coast (California, Oregon, Washington)?
