Consider the New York Art Expo: An artist will pay almost $900 per day for four days, a minimum of $3,550. For this, the artist receives an exhibition space of about 4 x 10 feet. He is included in the Expo along with 400 or more other exhibitors selling everything from frames to sculpture. This demands a lot of investigation and considerable thought before jumping in.
