A few months ago, Focus Gallery posted a photo on their instagram page advertising an upcoming exhibition called 'New Talent'. The post was a call to action for artists who had never exhibited their work before, to apply and be considered for the exhibition. At this point I had obviously never exhibited in a gallery, but I had also never done a show before either. Although it seemed a little daunting at the time, the prospect was also incredibly exciting, so I applied straight away, and I was utterly thrilled to receive the good news that my work had been accepted!
Good evening all, I know I have written several posts about the Country Living Spring Fair now, but I felt that this one deserved an extra special little mention. As most of you know, I applied to several fairs this year, but this fair was one I had my heart set on participating in. I was so thrilled to be accepted, after having launched only a few months earlier, I rallied together to get everything finished and in place in order to exhibit back in April.
Good afternoon gang. I understand it has been a while since the fair, but I wanted to take the opportunity to write about my experience as it was my first time attending such an event, never mind exhibiting at one! As you may have already seen from my 'Setting Up' post, which you can read here, actually preparing for such an event can be quite the challenge, but believe me, it is totally worth it. Situated across the entirety of Alexandra Palace in London, this show features so many amazingly creative and talented businesses, and I was utterly thrilled to join them this year. Having been an avid reader of the magazine for years, I knew their show wouldn't disappoint.
Earlier this year I had applied to several shows and festivals, and I so was thrilled to find out that I had gotten one of the last spots available to exhibit at the Country Living Spring Fair at Alexandra Palace in London! Having never exhibited at a fair like this before, and only having one month to prepare, I was working like mad to get everything finished on time. I have to say, during the research phase of the process, (there's always a research phase right?!) I didn't find that much information on tips and tricks for setting up, so I thought I'd give you my breakdown of events, in the hopes that any future exhibitors will find this helpful!
