Adding enclosed storage area behind festival tent

Contributing to a great site; winning a fantastic prize

Posted on June 17, 2015 at 12:09pm 2 Comments

I won a great prize for doing something I should have been doing for years -- I made a small contribution to support Art Fair Insiders / Art Fair Calendar this year. Given how much I get out of the Calendar and Insiders, the call for artists, show reviews, etc., I wish I could have done more.

I am so appreciative of all that goes into running these sites/services and providing the wonderful support to artists across the country.

I won a free show from AFFPS (Atlanta Foundation…

Art on the Creek in Johns Creek, GA

Posted on July 8, 2010 at 5:49pm 3 Comments

Has anyone participated in Arts on the Creek in Georgia? What did you think about it? This is the 4th year for the show, so I'd imagine the chances of anyone being a part of it on here are slim ;-)

I'm trying to find some new shows for the fall, rather late to get into many of them... Any suggestions?

Thanks!

Hi, Janet. We haven't really met, but I was an artist at Peachtree Hills and we exchanged a few words. i really wanted to take a look at your work because liked your booth (what I could see from the quick dash to the porta-potties... story of my life. I never really get to see anything at shows). i recognized your booth in a recent post so i looked to see if u would be at Chastain. Not expecting to get a chance, particularly since i am far from you, but thought i would at least say hi this way, and let you know my intentions are at least good.
