To see my high quality, fine art landscape photography “up close and personal”, attend one (or more) of the wonderful Wisconsin art fairs listed below in which I participate. (Scroll down to see the prints I’m displaying at the art fairs).

I tend to keep a matted print in the booth for 2 years, three if it is popular. I replace approximately 35-50% of the matted prints exhibited at art fairs each year. Of the prints that do not sell, a small few are retained for inventory.
Of the prints I do not wish to keep, I remove the print from the mat and destroy it. If the mat is in great shape, I will then re-use it for a new print displayed at art fairs. If the mat has any bent corners, dents, or scratches, the mat will also be destroy and no longer used. A new mat will then be generated.
All ordered prints are printed “on-demand” specifically for the order. It is matted with a recently cut mat that has never been used or displayed at art fairs.
Considering Entering Art Fairs?
If you are considering entering art fairs yourself, you may enjoy a number of blog articles (under “Art Fairs” category) I've written about my experiences at art fairs since starting in 2012.
