This was my first real show and I didn't really know what to expect. I was attracted to it because it's close to home, the booth fee was only $30, which included one 6' table and two chairs and I was able to bring along another table of my own. The show hours were also appealing, 6 to 9 on Friday evening and 10 to 4 on Saturday. So, not a huge investment, great location, affluent area...all good, right?
So, on Friday evening they had appetizers and wine for show-goers and…Continue

Fairhope used to be a very decent show but has slipped in last 5 years. They do get 150,000-200,000 or so attendees but many are also going to the Art Center show down the way. That show always struck me as the "sad sister" to the Chamber show. It's not a high end show for sure. And the sad kicker is that several shops and outsiders set up "also booths" to capture sales although they are not in either show. The public does not know this and probably does not care. And the Chamber & City…Continue

I've had my Nissan van - the tall one - for two years now. I've racked up 90,000 miles in those years, and until Saturday, never had a problem. But on Saturday, 30 miles or so from home, on my way back from Virginia Beach, I ran into and killed a deer.
The event was awful. It was dusk, and it's hunting season, so I was watching. It didn't matter. One instant, the road ahead of me was open. The next minute, a large deer was there. She died instantly, and I think there's a small…Continue
Just got back from Bling show in Highland Park..Amdur productions show..I don't know what to think about her shows.She did a nice show, had munchies for artists and if they needed anything, they were accommodating..can't complain about that.. Amy even went through and purchased a few things from cheaper artists to help out..
Jury fee was only $15, we paid $450 for the space and $75 for electricity, inside venue, but half the exhibit space you'd have in a normal set up.. Good thing I…Continue
I know the Eastern Shore Chamber puts on the March Fairhope show but there is another run concurrently and I can't seem to find a link to it. Anyone know? I'm too late for the Chamber app, wondering about the other.....
Unless you are selling your artwork to an art museum of some kind, your artwork is probably destined for somebody’s living room.
And, apparenty, this is what people want in their living rooms:
Over the years, I notice what I can and cannot get away with: Animals are ok.…Continue
