I got juried into my first art fair and my first big art show! I'm really excited - and very nervous - about both of these, so if you've ever been interested in seeing my photography in person, and are in the Michigan or Chicago areas in mid/late July, please come say hello and hang out! It will be great moral support for me! Like I said in the descriptions above, the first art fair event is FREE to attend, and it's huuuge fair that takes up most of downtown Ann Arbor, because it's pretty much four fairs rolled into one, so it's a lot of fun! I will be in the shared tent booth #A101 for New Art New Artists with a few other upcoming student artists (there are maps for the booth layouts available at the event).
The second art show event is hosted by RAW Natural Born Artists, an international independent art organization that specifically seeks to expose underground talent. Because of their altruistic and indie ways, they do require artists to sell 20 tickets at 15$ each to support our spots in the event through our RAW artist website profile pages, but it will definitely be well worth it - the event will feature a bunch of awesome live music and performances, art gallery spaces, and a fashion show! For an example of what you can look forward to at a RAW event, here's a video preview of one of their past shows:
If you would like to support my place in the event and are interested in coming, I could really use your help so please visit www.rawartists.org/sophiaadala… and click the "Buy a ticket for this artist" link!
And if you're unable to attend either of the events but still wish to help me out, it would really mean a lot to me and I'd be soooo grateful if you could help share the news, especially if you know anyone in the Chicago area for the second event - I'm really nervous I won't be able to sell my 20 tickets so I could really use the help! Thank you so much and I hope I'll see at least some of you at one of the art events!
PS. Thank you everyone who helped me out by leaving feedback in my poll! It was super helpful and I truly appreciate it!
