Art fair fees

Just as an example of the spectacular financial burden of art fairs: Just finishing assembling all the paperwork required by my accountant to do 2015 taxes.

In 2015 we paid $66, 466 in art fair fees + $738 in art fair insurance + $3, 938 in travel/hotels to/from them + $908 in food + $1200 in shipping expenses after the fairs (we use the gallery van to drive the work to/from fairs and thus save those massive shipping expenses).

That's $73, 250 Samolians in expenses for five art fairs in 2015! About $14,650 per art fair.

And still, that's the main way to go if one wants to expose, expand and move artwork.
