What are the best things about art fairs
Meeting new people, getting feedback and encouragement, and selling!
Best show ever and why
San Antonio - Fiesta Art Fair 2019 and 2023. I love the crowds, the energy of the town during the special week of Fiesta! I always do well financially, the promoters are very helpful, there are always artists coffee and snacks available, and the artists dinner which is becoming more and more rare is a fabulous way to really connect with other artists which I can't do much at busy shows. Also I won a Best of Show award in 2023.
Worst show ever and why
That's tough to say because shows I love have some horrible years. Maybe Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival in 2016? ( I think) in the pouring, pouring rain, standing in mud, soaking wet with people still wanting to shop oblivious to my situation. Other years I absolutely LOVE that show.
Who referred you to ArtFairInsiders.com? Please be specific.
Just the web. I have known about it for years.
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I have dreams of combining van life and shows with a mobile studio for part of the year.
