Hello Amy, Thanks for alerting me to this change. I had spent time looking around for this show's show dates but could not find anything. I was planning on contacting someone to find out about the show's status before I just removed it from the calendar. I appreciate your help.

The Contemporary Crafts Market that is listed for
March 7 and 8 is now non existent. That show was
permanently canceled several years ago. The promoter
is Roy Helms and Associates. You can get in touch through his website craftsource.org
He does have 2 shows in Pasadena now, one in June and one in November.

Hello Judy, good luck with your art event. Sounds like you have made good plans.

Judy Hu

The purposes of the Maeya art festival competitions are, first, to discover and showcase the talented worldwide artists, and second, to help develop the collection for galleries, museums, private parties and talent agencies; third, to create an elegant event with the entertainment and education for the local community; fourth , to create the multicultural exchange experience through the arts.
Come to enjoy the art from China and local, bring your kids to get the master’s instruction at the workshops; meet the artists from oversea; enjoy the beautiful Palos Verdes peninsula.

Hello Heidi, I don't know if the information you are looking for will be found here. However, what I suggest is your artist friend and his wife should see about joining www.ArtFairInsiders.com. This is a website for artists. They could ask that question to our group of over 11,000 artists and one of them may have some information to help them out.

I don't know if they are interested in Sedona, AZ or not. I have never seen such an artist community like they have there. They may want to check that out.

Jacki Bils

Thank you, Heidi, for alerting me to that error. I will get that fixed.

Artists & crafters, any suggestions for a small, friendly, artsy town within 90 minutes of S.F. for a fine woodcrafter (& wife) who's moving here from NY state? They love Benicia, but are interested in other areas too. Not too hot or hilly, affordable homes. Thanks!

Heidi Ross

Note: The Live Oak show in Berkeley, CA is on SHATTUCK Ave, not SHALLUCK Ave.

Jacki Bils

Muriel, I do have a suggestion. I think you should join www.Artfairinsiders.com. It is a free group for artists and others associated with art shows. There you can post your question to the 11,000 artists we have in our group. The artists help each other out and share helpful information. You can ask this very question once you become a member. Hope to see you there. Jacki

Muriel Lange

Looking for juried shows that appreciate hand crafted stringed instruments. Any suggestions?

Jacki Bils

Hello Pamela. We only list Fine Art and Craft shows that are juried. If a show wants to have their show listed here they need to contact us. If they qualify we can list their art show. If you know of a good show that you think should be listed here encourage the show to contact us.

Pamela Perkins

David Blake

New here, looking for good shows in Washington state to sell my woodcarvings and antler sculptures. Thank you

Jacki Bilsborrow

Hello Momo, yes, the best way to find all about an Art Show is to talk with an artists who has done the show.
Jacki B


The best way to find out about a fair is to contact artists in your medium and ask them for their opinion. If the fair is excellent it will be the first thing they say, else read between the lines. Some fair may have a good reputation but be pits and junk, some fair may be less glamorous and be excellent.

Jacki Bilsborrow

Hello Elisabeth. We can list your shows. You will need to go to www.artfaircalendar.com. Look for the link on the left side of the page to list your show. Just follow the directions. Jacki B

Elisabeth A. Seeger

There are two big western art shows in Washinton in May - The Ellensburg Western Art Show, 2nd or 3rd week in May and Ritzville, WA art fair the next weekend - both have high quality painting and sculpture, and the Ellensburg show has an auction and quick draw event too.

Jacki Bilsborrow

Hello Linda, yes we do have some western shows in our calendar. We have shows listed in Montana, Colorado, Wyoming,Utah, Idaho, Nevada, and Arizona in our Southwestern Section. We also have some western shows listed in California, Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Utah listed in our Western section. Look through both of those sections to see if you can find what you are looking for. Are you an artist? If so, you should join our other website, www.artfairinsiders.com. It is a website for artists.

Linda Sole

Does the newsletter post shows for Montana, Idaho Colorado and Wyoming. I need more western based show schedules.
Thanks Linda in Kalispell, MT

Jacki Bilsborrow

Hello Jose. I am sorry that I don't know who that artist is or where he is from. Maybe someone will see this and contact you. Do you remember which show you saw him at? If so, contact the show organizers. They could probably help out. Good luck.
Jacki B

Die machine, being an artist who is trying to make a living from their craft is not for the faint of heart. Hang in there.
