"Thanks Connie.  I don't go to many shows anymore, too much of the same thing at show after show.  It's interesting that I don't think there are that many shows close to  Miami and Dan, who lives there also, thinks there…"

" OK, I am done with these last two. Photo credit on Rocky Mtn. goat: Kim Lucas. Not the shedding winter coat.  The other shows how much of a slog it was up from the trail head at the road bend in the valley.  "

"The Ghost of Jobs syndrome, they need a couple grand. Go pay them they will give you another box that doesn't quite work which too will have to be replaced in a couple of years. Don't fight it...its bigger than the both of us. "

First show ever
Royal Oak, MI, and the following weekend the State Street Show in Ann Arbor. Baptism by fire!
What is your website?
http://artfaircalendar.com
What are the best things about art fairs
When you go home with fat pockets.
Best show ever and why
Ann Arbor Summer Art Fair 2001 - best sales ever at an art show, lots of money flowing in the streets of Ann Arbor. We went home and paid all our bills!
Worst show ever and why
As beginners, grasping at anything, got talked into an "art show" at Boysville, a fundraiser at a rural boy's reformatory. The first day we pocketed $5 in sales. Instead of spending the night we cancelled our hotel reservation and went home.

Matters of Life and Death

Posted on July 21, 2015 at 10:30am 5 Comments

My apologies to the members here for my absence for several months. As you may know my husband, Norm Darwish died in early May. Since then I've been preoccupied with so many things. I won't list them, as you are all creative people with fine imaginations. 

On Sunday, July 19, we held a Memorial Open House for Norm at our home in Southern Michigan. Many thanks to everyone who attended: friends, family from out of state and the…

Hi Connie,
Thank you so much for the warm welcome. I am very excited to be a part of a group of people who are like minded! I am an emerging Artist so I know I can learn so much from others, and from the archives.

Best Regards,
Aspen
