The bad reports were from a couple other artists from Ft. Collins, one 2D and one 3D artist. They were negative about The show in the early 2000's but, actually did well last few years. Another bad report was from may neighbor in 1989. He was a watercolor artist. I saw him at that show as a visitor and it did look more like a flea market. He said it would be his last one. 

The last time I tried that show was in 1976. The show was good then, but my booth wasn't. I used four kitchen chairs as easels and sold 2 oil paintings out of four.

ernie  email promoter so we will see the new show fine arts cost the public 25.00 per person just to walk in the door.  curious to know how long that lasts with two other shows going on.  

Comment by Ernie Komarek yesterday

Sculpture in the Park is still on, but entries closed Jan. 31st. They claim 80% of artist made sales last year with total sales over $1 million.

Art in the Park Loveland 2015 is across the street and may have booths available. $225 & $250 for 10x10 booths.

Loveland Fine Art Invitational & Sale is also at the same location. Deadline for entries thru Zapp is June 1st. $500 for 10x10 booth.

Maybe I should I it out how did it do last year
Comment by Ernie Komarek yesterday

I don't know about a show that folded, but Art in the Park really sucked years ago. The city has backed out and the art league is bringing the quality of the show up. Buy/sell is banned now.

Comment by steve appel yesterday

i did art in the park  with the thompson valley art league years ago and will never go back to that one.   I heard that the city helps run the show  so  when did diabetic socks, and amway products become an art.  It looked more like a swap meet.  And when i attended very few people showed up so i doubt the 40,000 no's are right.  Over inflated    is the answer for crowds.  Why then did the Loveland show that weekend fold.
