Rittenhouse Square, Philadelphia

Posted on June 6, 2011 at 9:30pm 2 Comments

I know there have been reviews of this show before, but here is my 2 cents worth.


Philadelphia is a city with only a handful of Art Festivals for a local artist to choose from. There is Rittenhouse Square, which is limited to fine art only (Photography is excluded). There is the Museum Craft show in November which is mostly craft, obviously, and there is the Manayunk Art Festival, open to all. I think maybe this is a good thing, as there isn't any festival fatigue that I hear…


Art City Austin. TX review

Posted on April 7, 2011 at 8:30am 1 Comment

This is my first time doing this show in downtown Austin. The show takes place along the main street, Ceasar Chavez Blvd, that runs along the Colorado River. The river separates the downtown area to the north, and south Austin, which has been evolving into a funky, artsy area. I have been told south Austin wasn't that desirable years ago.


When I told my art festival friends I was doing Austin, I was getting lots of concerned looks. I got a lot of "good luck"s and even one "I…


Bethesda Row in the Washington DC area

Posted on October 18, 2010 at 9:47pm 4 Comments

There are a number of shows in the DC area, Reston, Alexandria, and 2 in Bethesda, and more I am not aware of. Washington has the advantage of being somewhat recession proof (probably an overstatement) because the federal government does well when the economy is not good. I have always thought this is a good venue in all economic climates. So here is my review;

First, the logistics. This is a Saturday morning setup, always not fun. Most of us had 6 AM load…

The Plaza Kansas City - a review

Posted on September 28, 2010 at 8:50pm 8 Comments

This was my first time at this show. I do pastels that range from $450 to $3200. I had heard lots of good things about this show, and did not get in last year when I applied. I have to say that I found the good things to be true.

First, the logistics. Set up is on Friday morning. We all got staggered times to load in, and it was very smooth getting in. The show is on wide streets, and the booths are in the middle with a couple extra feet on the sides and back. It was a…

Bellevue Museum of Arts Show - Forget what I said last month...

Posted on August 2, 2010 at 9:03pm 7 Comments

Some of you remember my post about my "trend" of people not buying higher priced (relatively) 2-D work. (I am a pastel artist with a higher price range). I made a comment about the spewing oil well, and maybe that was depressing patrons.

Well, the well has been capped for almost 3 weeks, and I made the very long trip to Bellevue, WA to do the BAM Artsfair with much trepidation.

In my case, the fear was for naught. First, about the show. It is…
