Melbourne Art Festival-New Howard Alan Show, last weekend.

This one was new first show for HAE in downtown Melbourne.

This is one month earlier than the long established festival which had been downtown for years which is now moving to a local park away from downtown.

HAE had 150 booths setup in quads down New Haven, the Main Street downtown.

Everybody had one great outside wall to display on. The other opposite side was not jammed up against your neighbor. You had room to store or hang there,nice.

There was room for rear storage if… Continue

Scottsdale Arts Festival 2017

It had been 6 years since the last time I participated in this show, even had a different portfolio of work to show, but the results were little better then the last time. I even had a better booth location, or so I thought.

Logistics:

The show is set up inside the the Scottdale Civic Center Park which has meandering…

Fairhope Arts and Crafts Festival Another Take

Margaret covered most of the essentials in her post but we wanted to provide a little more information about our experience.  At the outset, I want to make it clear I do not intend to be bitchy or disagreeable in any way.  My intent on writing these reviews is to provide specific information about shows that we do in order to assist others in deciding if they want to apply in the future. I try to do so in an entertaining way.  But I am so upset at what happened at this show that I might seem…

Fairhope......Art Fun in the Deep South for some!

It was the 65th year of the  Fairhope Arts Festival this past weekend. In a cute suburb of Mobile Alabama, the show hosts 236 artists throughout the town's main cross streets. It's 300 dollars to participate with a prize chest of over 10 thousand dollars. The show is a three day event that starts at ten each day and ends at 6 on Friday and Saturday and then on 5 on Sunday.

Load in on Thursday at 6 pm was pretty uneventful and was easy to maneuver as was load out. The show is set up in…

Manatee Art Festival--Apollo Beach, Florida

First off. This show is not out in a dung-infested cow pasture--anymore. A few years back it was moved to a scenic county park right on Tampa Bay.

You can smell the salt air, feel the cooling bay breezes wafting thru your booth.

I have done this show off and on over the 25 years it has been held. It is only a thirty minute drive from my Ybor house.

On this date, everybody would love to be at Vero Beach art show. But alas, those old art ladies will not let all of us in, so other… Continue
