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.
