"Thanks Chris....I'm in Dallas and will keep an eye on how this sale progresses. Hard to coordinate from such a distance. I would take it quickly if it were only 300 miles or so. Would you ship it?"

"I did it in 2011 for what it is worth. Produced by Blue Lotus. Not much traffic and what there was didn't seem to know it was an art show. Not impressed with management. I made my minimum but others nearby did zero."

Jay Heinrich replied to Barrie Lynn Bryant's discussion Anyone Got Sedona Art Festival News? in the group SW Artists
"Good luck with Sedona, great place to visit that time of the year. It certainly sounds as if they are setting up for a competitive environment with two "shows". You may want to check if there are any shows in the Phoenix/Scottsdale area…"
