What are the best things about art fairs

interaction with people about my work

Best show ever and why

Artsplosure 2012 - 90,000 people in two days and people were BUYING. I was hoarse from talking to so many thousands of people

Worst show ever and why

Hillsborough Art Festival (NC) March 2012: no advertising and the people who came thanks to artists advertising couldn't find it: the city wouldn't let organizers put up any signs! Good quality of work, too, but unlikely anyone will ever come back.
