Started Oct 2, 2012 0 Replies

Does anyone use a 10'x15' trimline?  I love it when I show with a friend and we do a double trimeline booth, but we only do that at a few shows.  I don't think I can fit or deal with two trimlines on…Continue

Turtle Creek Arts Festival in Dallas Texas is the second weekend of November.  This was the inaugural show.  The show takes place in Reverchon Park next to Katy trail.  Turtle Creek is a very high end area of Dallas, in the middle of the city.  Many artists won’t do a first year show but I have had success with new…See More

Bayou City Art Festival Downtown Houston TX

We are driving from Houston as I write this on our way to New Orleans to enjoy some good food and drinks after finishing up two Texas shows. The Houston show was this past weekend. It was very impressive that the organizers and the city were able to not only go on with the show but to do it up to the standards of past events. If…See More

"Thanks Connie for adding pics. This year 1400 artist applied and they chose 240 so I think about 250 artist booths. The show has been going for over 40 years one in fall and one in spring."

We usually don’t do suburban shows especially in a park but Cottonwood has a great reputation and many well established artist do this show both in fall and in spring and continue to return year after year. Cottonwood lined up perfectly with Houston so we decided it was time to try the show. Serri the show director communicates very well…See More
