What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

Well organized, advertised & attended.

Best show ever and why

Kentucky Crafted open line of communication w/ artist, well advertised & attended. Also May fest in Tulsa, OK really took care of the artist & was very informative of weather conditions b/c they change so quickly there.

Worst show ever and why

Zona Rosa in KC, MO Made it hard for artist to set up, not understanding of the artist made you feel like a dollar sign & thats it.

  • Thank You, Dee Dee, for referring Diane Balber to Art Fair Insiders.
  • Hi DeeDee,

    Thanks for the kind words!

    All I can say is - keep trying to get in!! I've never applied for it & I don't go every year :-( but it is an awesome show & well attended. You'd fit right in & do very well, I'm sure! Ask Tom Gross what he knows, too; you can tell him I said so. Ironically, with the exception of 2 shows, the Art Guild has totally shut everything down - no exhibits, no gallery, no classes, bare-bones staff - until they get their funding straightened out. They mostly operate thru membership fees, grants & (corporate) donations, & the money just hasn't been there as in past years. I doubt they'd ever give up the fall show, though, unless they were truly desperate. So hang in there! :-)

  • Hi DeeDee and no, I'll not be in Springfield. I'm home for April and May. I'm caught up with orders almost so I'm giving my attention to remodeling right now. You can only ignore a house so long! I'm still thinking of working in another wholesale show before Chicago. My next retail is Wichita in September. Hope Springfield is good for you.
