In this section, we’ll cover some of the issues on the day: Dress for Success, Engage Your Friends, and Cater!
Part 3 Begins……..
Dress For Success
That might mean a breezy floral outfit if you are showing in Jacksonville, or a pair of ripped diesel jeans and a too-small t-shirt if you are exhibiting in Williamsburg. Wear what feels appropriate to your market and your art.
Engage Your Friends
Enlist your friends to help with the running of the show. That includes greeting visitors, offering drinks and snacks, and taking care of sales transactions and packing. Good friends will have a blast helping you succeed. Buy them dinner or return the favor!
No need to go overboard, but a simple selection of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks will always smooth the conversation and open up new connections for you. A tasteful selection of snacks (that donâ€™t run out) also helps. Don’t over-cater though or you might find your guests hovering around the food when you want them focused on your art:)
Check Back Soon for Part 4 where we’ll look at more things to watch out for at your show.
