Art Show Website

October 4, 2012

 AWE member Joni Davis recommended this site to me.  She said it is a great place to find art shows and hear about other people’s experiences at the show.  Here at HandMade in America, we are working on a similar database of arts and craft shows.  If you have an experience selling work at a certain fair, gallery, etc and would like to share your experiences, please email me for the form at
The ZAPP® SystemZAPP® enables individual artists to apply online to multiple art shows through one central Web site, The online application process also allows artists to directly upload digital images of their artwork for jury review. The result is that all artwork in the system is in a consistent, high-quality, digital format. The digital images are presented to the jurors of each show and the system allows them to score online.
