Fine art show in various media
Years in the Art Fair Business
First show ever
In the late 1990s, I organized and directed several smaller shows. In 2000, the College of Medicine at Rockford hosted the first Art on the Lawn, a juried one-day show of fine arts and high end fine craft in various media. Now in our 14th year, the show is held on the grounds of Rockford College at 5050 East State Street in Rockford. I have directed the show since its inception. Always the second Sunday in June, the deadline to apply is usually mid-March.

What are the best things about art fairs
All the wonderful artists and beautiful art!
Best show ever and why
Why, Art on the Lawn 10th anniversary! Perfect weather, wonderful artists with a great mix of art and sales were very healthy.
Worst show ever and why
Rock Valley College arts and crafts fair...full of buy/sell, items in plastic marked "Made in China", even though the rules clearly forbid it. Didn't make a single sale, but the booth across from me selling $3 necklaces made a killing.
