If you had your choice as a painter, would you choose either Northern VA in Reston or Springfield Old Capital in Illinois?  I haven't done either before.  Switching up my May shows this year and not…Continue

I live in Ohio and can easily drive 9 hours to a show, but I would like to start doing shows as far away as TX and CO next year.  I know a lot of artists drive that far, but I'm wondering if anyone…Continue

Anyone use flood lights?

Started this discussion. Last reply by Larry Sohn May 22. 2 Replies

I have 6 LED lights from propanel and honestly, they just aren't cutting it. And they are such a pain to set up as my booth walls are 9' tall. I was thinking about getting a couple flood lights to…Continue

I was waitlisted for Three Rivers in Pittsburgh. Was wondering when the booth fees are due for the show since that's when most people seem to get called off the wait list. I can't find anything…Continue

Bethesda Row Arts Festival Review, October 14-15

Posted on October 18, 2017 at 12:00am 19 Comments

Just got back from the Bethesda Row Arts Festival in - you guessed it - Bethesda MD.  I looked all over this site beforehand for a good review of this show and couldn't find anything, so I'll try to fill in some holes for anyone else looking to do the show.  This was my first time here.  I heard the same folks put on another spring show here is Bethesda, but this review is specifically for the Bethesda ROW show in October.  I…

What a weird year... recapping my last 6 shows

Posted on July 3, 2017 at 9:30pm 6 Comments

I don’t know how the year has been for most of you so far, but its been a weird one for me.  All my shows have been flip-flopped from 2016. 

 

Arlington in April was barely worthwhile in 2016, but this year I had a killer show even though Saturday was almost totally rained out so everything sold Sunday!  I did Art Birmingham in May (a first for me) and it…

For the Love of Art - South Bend, March 4, 2017

Posted on March 10, 2017 at 9:03pm 4 Comments

I was just logging on to write a review of the "For the Love of Art" show in South Bend, IN but Alison Fox beat me to it.  Alison covered most of the bases and was spot on, so I'll just add on my experience and if you want to see exact logistics check out her review.  I stayed in the Double Tree with the artist rate and it was so nice just being able to walk across that skywalk over to the show!  The venue was really really beautiful!  The previous years it had been held at a location…

Hey everyone! I've recently started using my art for "good" and have created a children's book titled "What Makes You Special?" featuring my original paintings as illustrations and my original story.
