Last weekend was the 2nd annual River Clay Fine Arts Festival in Decatur, Alabama. We were there for the first festival last year, making this our first repeat show. Decatur is located in north central Alabama on the banks of Wheeler Lake, a part of the Tennessee River system. The site is the park surrounding city hall in the downtown area and adjacent to a new arts center located about a block away.
There were approximately 80 artists. From our observations the quality of the work…Continue

I noticed on http://festivalinthepark.org/ that Charlotte’s “Festival In the Park” this weekend is still going ahead as scheduled, despite the Charlotte riots and curfews. I was wondering how that is working out. Are the artists and crafters actually setting up? What were they told by the promoter? Will anyone show up tomorrow and Sunday? Are the police actually able to provide credible security?

How does an art festival plan its budget? What's so hard about putting on a small event and what about those big blockbuster events with sponsors, good prize money and hopefully buyers.
Show organizers and those who are curious about the work involved should find this article from the Chicago Tribune really interesting. Expo Chicago, September 22-25, is one of those big…Continue

Lu was accepted for the first time in at least 10 years. This is probably the most artist friendly show that we have ever done. Lu was impressed from the moment that she went to check in and came back to tell me about the most helpful woman who checked her in.
We then went to set up our tent and found that we had a fence post in the middle of it, as we were trying to figure out what to do, our block captain came by and asked…Continue

This was last weekend in downtown Birmingham,Michigan right on the street--Old Woodward Avenue. This show is produced by the Ann Arbor Guild but you do not have to be a member to do it. It is on Zapp.
For the second year in a row, weather killed the attendance on Saturday--rain, until about 3pm. The crowds never showed up even though we still had over three hours to sell. This basically made it a one day show.
A couple of artists that I know made serious money that…

Made in Ohio is always labor day weekend, held in the historic living museum known as Hale Farm and Village. Hale is a representative of an 18th century Ohio farmland village, made of buildings brought to the property. From the parking lot you can see the Hale house and Barn, and through a short trail you walk into a village green lined by vintage homes and buildings. For labor day weekend this bucholic sight is embellished with 100+ white tents filled with amazing art, handcrafted…Continue
Before too much more time has passed I wanted to share our experience at Arts, Beats, and Eats this past Labor Day weekend. It was a good show for us in that we made pretty good money and we had a great time doing so. The event is in its 19th year and as the name suggests combines music, food and art in a community celebration. Its current venue is several blocks of downtown Royal Oak, a trendy community north of Detroit. There is a minimal charge to get in, $3.00 before 11am and $5.00…Continue

I really like to collect pottery but when I start seeing what my friends Chad Jerzak, Adam Egenolf and Thomas Harris do to produce the work they do and what entitle I appreciated a bit more. Each one of them has a unique style. More interesting was to learned how much the equipment cost to produce the…Continue
