FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Can FAI assist me with pricing my artwork ?
We ask that you price your artwork based on your sales history. We will be glad to provide feedback and pricing suggestions afterwards.
How many artworks can I exhibit?
The number of pieces depends on the wall size that you have. We usually do not overhang artwork, and the pieces need to “breath” so they can be appreciated by the visitors.
Does FAI provide individual booths per artist, or wall space within one booth?
We could provide you with your own semi private space within our booth if you are interested in working at the booth and trying to sell work on your own. This might be constrained by booth layout but we will do our best to accommodate. Please inquire.
Is there a deadline to submit my work?
Deadlines vary by fairs. We usually ask that the images of the work that you would like considered for the fairs will be submitted for review no later than three months prior to the fair.
How is the space calculated?
The space is calculated by the width of the wall which is the linear ft.
What is the height of the walls?
In most fairs the walls are 10 ft high.
What kind of booth location does FAI have in fairs?
We always have prime locations in fairs, which are centrally located and present our exhibiting artists with top visibility.
How many sales can I expect? What is the price range?
Sales volume varies from fair to fair and prices range between $500 – $20,000. We can’t guarantee sales, but they are in our best mutual interest, and we do guarantee every effort will be made to sell the artwork.
How much space is between the next artist and me?
Spacing between artworks and artists depends on the pieces being exhibited, the aesthetics, and the overall design of the booth. Our experienced team will curate the booth for the best presentation and salability.
Can I hang all the art that fits on the wall space?
We do our best to make your artwork stand out, so we usually don’t overhang unless there is good artistic justification for that. This sometimes means the selection of work that we exhibit will not include all of the artwork that you present to us.
When do I have to send the artwork?
A few weeks prior to the fair.
Who is responsible to ship the artwork to the fair and back?
Can I send you my work rolled?
Yes, you can and we can get you a quote for stretching and framing.
Do I have to take care of customs when sending the work?
We can help with the process, but you are responsible for your shipping and shipping related arrangements, including customs.
Insurance during the fair?
Your work will be covered by our fine arts insurance policy while it is displayed in our booth.
