What are the best things about art fairs
Meeting wonderful, interesting people and trading work. Learning new ideas.
Best show ever and why
Ann Arbor Street Fair in the beginning. We were all together, trying to make ourselves known. Also, the first year of our art Festival at St. Thomas Epsicopal Church in Trenton, Michigan. We cleared a thousand dollars the very first year, and brought art to a working class neighborhood. It was a very satisfying effort.
Worst show ever and why
None, all brought friends.

After nine years in the Ann Arbor Street Fair, auspices of an invo through Mike Church and demonstrating every year, in my last year I had sent in my application , been accepted, notified that I would again demonstrate, and some nit came along with a clipboard and asked me what right I had to be there and demonstrating. I don't remember my last year date, which is not right at hand at the moment. This is all being included in my autobiography. My mother, as sculptress, Eileen Anderson a modernist painter, and myself a potter, combined efforts in two booths and made them a gallery. I found little art activity in the Downriver area when looking for art fair info in 1952. Therefore, I founded the Downriver Arts and Crafts Guild and annual show and I believe it is still going today, having a site on the web.
