What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

Selling art of course! Meeting other artists & collectors.

Best show ever and why

I'll wait on this one

Worst show ever and why

Pretty much all the small "monthly art walks" in the metro Phoenix area. You sell a little but nothing that someone can do full time.

  • Thanks for your support, Brian. It is appreciated.
  • A gold trophy to you for all your contributions to the community at AFI -- your generosity and sharing and good thinking skills are a gift to all of us. Many thanks.
  • Congrats on winning the Post of the Week Award - 12/10/12.
  • what kind of work do you do? do you have a few pics? we are in the presido with a large foot traffic count. We get travelors from all over the world. I only have room for a few more artists. My permanent artists  (those with a one year contract) I charge 175 per month + 15 per cent commission. The artist usually makes a lot more under that plan. If I really like someones work but have questions if I could sell them, I go 40-60.............I take more risk but make a lot more. we are open 7 days a week except on Christmas. Artist friendly and two artists< my wife and I are the owners and sales people.

  • Happy Birthday Brian.  Hope this year is your best year ever.
