Summer in Montana is the time when a lot of art and craft shows are happening. After all, we want to catch all the tourist traffic we can get during our short summers, and show the visitors what we, Montanans, are capable of. This is also the time when county and regional fairs take place. So, what would happen if the two types of events were combined?
Part of life as an artist and a maker is applying for shows. Although there are some similarities in the process, different shows have different rules and requirements, and sometimes, making sure one meets those requirements feels like jumping through hoops.
