I posted this earlier, and Suzanne gave some great information, but I think it was in the wrong spot,so...
I need advice on how to set up a booth or tent for an art festival. The space is 12 x 12. I have never done one & need to know about displaying artwork (paintings on canvas) & things I will need in the tent to organize the space. Another option for this festival I am applying to is a 10 x 10 picnic table area...how would I display canvases in a space like that without just laying them flat on the table? What are some good brands of tents? is white preferred at most of these shows/festivals? Thanks!
Dick Blick carries a range of tents or "art shelters" for use at festivals. They carry a lot of the E-Z Up brand, so that must be one of the major art festival tent brands. You can see them here: http://www.dickblick.com/categories/outdoorstudio/outdoorsunshelter...
Most of them are white. If your art festival has a preference, they would probably make that known. White reflects heat so it's probably a good choice just for that reason!
Hope that helps and good luck with your show!
