Next month I will be involved in two outdoor art shows; the Hoboken Arts & Music Festival and the Downtown Bethlehem Fine Arts & Crafts Fair. I am in the process of upgrading my display tent so that my presentation is more along the level of my work. A phenomenal collage artist from Wantage, NJ, Carolyn Dubiel, sold me her professional art panels for display. Additionally, I invested in a real print display rack, a director's chair, and a professionally printed banner.

But, I'm stuck on doing one thing and I would appreciate any suggestions that you may have. I'm learning an emerging artist needs to ask for help rather than try to do everything by herself. Although these shows are in the daylight hours, a booth still needs electric lighting to properly show the work and to attract people to their location. Neither show offers an electrical source. I've read about people using marine batteries and power packs. I know nothing about them, how to use them, what to look for, how much to spend. If you have any sound advice please email me or direct comments below the post. Thanks in advance for your support!

We don't know anything about the power sources, but Erik has had a lot of positive input for similar electrical questions on doityouself.com. You need to become a member (but at no cost) and within an hour or so you'll get a response from a qualified electrician. Heide & Erik
