Mainstreet to the Rockies Downtown Frisco Art Festival, an HA event

This was the first time experience for this artist in Frisco, did an HA event in Redstone, UT years ago billed as Park City, UT a bait and switch?

All spaces were marked for the early (5AM) load in time. Load in was remarkably not chaotic as was load out, everyone behaved themselves. Minimal presence of staff with fewer instructions at the time of load-in, most instructions were given via their website or online way ahead of the show.

It has been years since I've done a…

The Phyllis Olsen Art Show in Cadillac, Michigan

Well, I have not blogged in a while.  So here goes.

I gave up on the Ann Arbor Show after 30 years, it just was not worth it anymore.

So, two years ago, I tried the Cadillac show as a replacement.

Not that I expected to gross as much as AA. But the show is an hour plus from my Saugatuck casa.  It is small, less than 100 exhibitors. It is held in a mellow downtown park right on the lake and it is easy-pezy to setup and teardown.

So last year I managed to pull $1500…

Prizewinners at Madison and Cherry Creek 2018

July brings the BIG shows and if you're not doing an art fair this month (especially if you live in the heart of the country) you probably aren't too serious about this business. (Just my opinion).

The V word

The V word has been becoming the promoters favorite word and to me it means a Tupperware sales person. I don’t understand why they can’t use artist or artisan that is what we are. I have noticed one thing that shows that use that word is usually the kind I want to stay away from because I feel they just want to sell space and do not care who they have in their shows.
