Martha Bennington replied to Connie Mettler's discussion I just KNEW Naples needed another 6 art events!
"I don't think Naples is the only market that is being over saturated with art shows.  My opinion is that it is happening across Florida, and we've personally experienced the over saturated art show market in the Sarasota area.…"

"Bonnie, I have to disagree with you. We were two booths from you in the same parking lot extension of the show. Friday and Saturday we terrible show days due to weather. No bodies fault. Saturday was packed, as was Sunday. I knew exactly what I was…"

"Thanks peeps, I think its the mixed bag of feeling ripped off on one hand, but such a great area and receptive crowd. The promoter is Grazia Productions, Maria Mariottini."

East Nashville Arts Fest... One Artists Perspective

First the positive notes: East Nashville is an amazing, art appreciative, funky, cool side of Nashville. The area is filled with fantastic boutiques, galleries and restaurants. Bongo Java is what a coffee house should be like, Battered and Fried has the best sushi rolls, Art and Invention Gallery has the most amazing collection of artists and art and the Antique store at the end of the street has the sweetest ladies behind the desk and great unique finds… more on these fantastic places…See More

What are the best things about art fairs
too many things to count! the opportunity to 'test drive' new ideas, listening to what people are talking about, networking with other working artists, traveling all over the country...this could be a long list!
Best show ever and why
Detroit Festival of the Arts 2006, it was my first chance to show in my hometown, the place that first inspired me... and i won Best in Show!
Worst show ever and why
Ojai Street Festival, a one day event, got lost looking for it, and i think a total of 15 people showed up, none of whom were interested in art, all they wanted to do was climb the rock climbing wall...
