What is your website?


What are the best things about art fairs

Interacting with potential customers and fellow artists. It's wonderful to get customer feed back!

Best show ever and why

After over 40 years doing shows I really can't narrow it down to that. If a show produces good dollars to pay the bills and book more then I am happy. And set up and break down matter and the quality of the artists and booths matter very much! If I am clearly out of place with the quality then I never do well.

Worst show ever and why

After 40+ years, I've had a few. No crowds, Poor promoters and misrepresentation of the event.

Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.

Larry Berman. Saw a blurp on your site somewhere else. Doesn't everybody know Larry?

What is one fun fact about yourself?

I remember traveling from DC to FL every year, like all the ole' timers did for a 3 month stay with almost back-to-back shows in the 70's. On the way I would change clothes to greet the warmth while driving.
