Years in the Art Fair Business
First show ever
late 2009 in Toronto
What are the best things about art fairs
Immediate feedback from audience, networking with other artisans
Best show ever and why
I enjoyed The Bust Craftacular in NYC a few years ago. It was just the right fit for my work, and a cheerful environment. I also liked the Danforth East Arts Fair in Toronto a lot. Very positive experience all around.
Worst show ever and why
During my first year of shows I signed up for a new and poorly run show. What makes it memorable is the palpable disrespect from the organizers towards the artists. It was obvious that we were only seen as a source of revenue for the organizers.
