From my mailbox:
I work on the arts festivals for _____ ____ on ___ _____. We have a show in the fall, where we try to attract more fine artists, and we provide judging and cash awards. We have one unique very talented artist who has attended for the last several years. She has won the top prize every year for the past several years. Some of our return artists have begun grumbling that she…

Last weekend we were in Huntsville, Alabama for Panoply, which is a community festival of the arts. There are three music stages, food vendors, arts activities for the kids, and an Arts Marketplace. The venue is Big Spring International Park in downtown Huntsville. The Arts Marketplace is set up along a sidewalk the surrounds a small lake and on the street that runs between the park and a performing arts center. If your booth is on the street you can drive right up to your spot and…Continue
Got home today from Bayou City Spring Festival in Memorial Park, Houston, TX.
I just live 205 miles from the show and I am not sure I should continue doing this show even though it is so close.
Now a little background.... this past weekend was my (I believe) 37th year in a row in the show. If I lived 206 miles from the show I might just give it up. My time at the show dates back to the old Westheimer Arts Fest. days. The show was at deaths door some twenty years or…Continue
Melanie Rolfes: I love to read your show reports – they are always full of useful information. One of the things in your reports that always baffles me is how you get your booth set up and broken down so quickly. It takes my wife and me between 5 and 7:30 hours to load in and set up our booth, and 3 to 4 hours to break down and load out. And that is for a single Trimline, not the double you are setting up. How you are able to get it done in 1:30 hours and 45 minutes amazes me. What is…Continue
I just checked the site and I couldn't find any write-up for the Downers Grove show, mid-September. Anyone out there done this show? Any comments? It is one of Amy Ardmur's Chicagoland shows. She does so many in that condensed area during the good weather months. Is that a good thing or bad? Is it just too saturated with shows that the buyers are fed up; or, are there so many shows because one can't feed enough to the beast?

I am In the middle of the spring marathon of shows. First marathon for me so as already stated my reviews are a bit shorter and pics not included. Just completed two HAE shows in the DC area. Arlington and Fairfax. I have reviewed Arlington a few times already so if you want more info search here on AFI. Fairfax was a first time event for HAE.
Love love the DC area for sales. Have done Arlington as a single show traveling from Atlanta and well worth it. Was excited to have another…

Last weekend we did the Magic City Art Connection which is held in Linn Park, Birmingham, Al. First of all, Birmingham is our adopted home town. We have lived in the area for 10 years and have attended to show in the past but this was our first year showing our work. Birmingham acquired the nick name "Magic City", not due to an over abundance of budding David Copperfield wannabes, but because of the rapid growth of the steel industry shortly after the civil war. The show was magic for…Continue
