with host artist Miriam Schulman
What does it really take to sell your art at art shows? Is it even still worth doing art shows?
Tracy Lizotte joins us to share her knowledge and expertise on how to maximize your results at an art show. Tracy has an incredible amount of experience selling her art at shows, fairs, and festivals. Although the market may have peaked for doing art shows, Tracy finds that it’s still a profitable way of selling art. If you currently sell your art at art shows or have been looking for additional ways to sell your art, Tracy has some fantastic tips and tricks for you!
I have a checklist for you (in the links below) to help make sure you have everything you need for each art show you sell at. Tracy and I also discuss the importance of having your artwork protected from the elements and displayed beautifully at your art shows. We love Flourish Displays and highly recommend them for your artwork.
We hope you enjoy our conversation and wish you success in selling your art at future art shows!

Calling all artists...
If you are a little stuck right now…
Or, um a lot stuck…
Or you need to know where you should be focusing right now…
Or just want some more momentum forward and some outside expert eyes on your art business…
This is for you. So, keep reading 😃
👀One of the most helpful things to grow your art business is to get someone that knows-what-the-heck-they-are-talking about to take a peek at it.
☎️And I'm offering this right now for a limited time: A confidential 1-on-1 breakthrough and strategy session to turn your passion into profit.
For the next few weeks, I’ve blocked off time in my calendar and I would love to talk to you 👩🎨
Now as you might imagine, I don't have time to talk to everyone which is why this is by application only 📝I only have a few spots open and they're going to fill up fast!
Oh…and if you qualify for the 30 min strategy and breakthrough session? It’s free! ❤️
What’s the catch? 🤔 Well, there really isn’t one but let me explain.
1️⃣: The goal of this session is to help you. I want to learn about you and your goals to help identify strategies/work through challenges and develop a plan forward. It doesn’t matter if you are just getting started in selling art OR if you are a seasoned pro looking for your next steps (or…somewhere in-between). As long as you want to turn you passion into profit this is for you.
2️⃣ : Obviously spots are limited (I can only do so many calls) so I only want to talk to folks who are serious about selling their art. (not you want to "paint for fun"-- nothing wrong with that-- but then this isn't for you) There really isn’t a “catch” other than if you’re a good fit to work with me long term then we'll talk about that as well. Maybe or maybe not (and only if it is a perfect fit)
