Years in the Art Fair Business


First show ever

Actually, I was doing trunk shows at Henri Bendel and Bloomingdales in NY before art fairs, but I'd say, Hoboken NJ was my first outdoor art fair.

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I'm having just as much fun coaching other artists to grow their own art business as I am making my own art!

  • Hello Andrea,

    I'm signed up to do the Pleasant Ridge Thanks and Giving Show on 11/13 and 11/14 at the Community Center on Ridge Rd.  It's a fledgling show, small but well attended and a good place (I hope) to get my feet wet.  I'll let you know how it goes or perhaps you could stop by...thanks for reaching out.
