Profile Information

Your Medium
Years in the Art Fair Business
First show ever
Alpine Artisans Summer show 2009
What is your website?
What are the best things about art fairs
Enjoy the people -- both other artists and folks that appreciate art -- and enjoy selling my work.
Best show ever and why
Great Western Art and Design Show, Great Falls MT during Western Art Week (Charlie Russell Week). Sold a tremendous amount of images to very appreciative audience
Worst show ever and why
A river runs through it - sponsored by Alpine Artisans in Seeley lake Montana. Held in conjunction with a festival celebrating Norman MCclean. We were all stuck under a large tent, poor lighting, rained all day, tent leaked, cold windy and wet'', nobody came to buy or even look at the art. I chalk it up to "paying my dues."
Who referred you to Please be specific.
Found it referenced through a show I was accepted in -- Sunriver Art Fair.
What is one fun fact about yourself?
Been making photographs since 1965
