Apollo Beach—they call it the Manatee Art Festival—I call it toast

This Show was the second weekend in March, same time as Vero.

Do not waste your time with this show, it is a loser for people trying to sell art.

A little background.

Apollo Beach is about 30 minutes South of my Ybor house. I have used it as a bailout show whenever I do not get in Vero.

I have done it for more than 10 years and could usually grind out $1500-$2000 and I slept in my own bed.…

Houston Bayou Art Show—Finally, something good to talk about

This Show was on the last full weekend in March.

They finally got their act together and limited the show to 300 artists. That meant nobody was stuck on an outer loop where half the attendees never walked.

We had excellent cool weather, decent crowds, about 15000 total.

Most artists made 6-10x their booth fees.

This is a three day show with no evening hours.

You can setup either on Wed. Or Thursday before the show.

At teardown, you can scrum with the…

Passed on it

Thank you Nels for confirming exactly what I feared would happen.  Glad  didn't drive from Ft. lauderdale for the show.

Art Attack Ft. Myers 2 weeks ago was a bad enough experience.

Sante Fe CC Art Show, Gainesville,FL—A total waste of time

Have done this show since the early eighties.

Used to be a strong $3-4K show.

Not anymore, can barely break a grand.

This is a huge college town teeming with young professionals.

You would think they would support the arts.  They do not.

Crafts have a better chance here.

I saw very few 2-D pieces go by this weekend.

You have too many artists for too few buyers.

Do not waste your time unless you live close to it.
