Coconut Grove, anyone?

Posted on December 2, 2013 at 12:22pm 9 Comments

  I am accepted to the Coconut Grove Art Fair in February. Never did that one! Any advice, helpful hints? It is very expensive to even be in Miami, so any advice for lodging?  Should I be happy or worry?

 Thanks for any suggestion!!


Bucktown Art Fair

 This is my first comment since I joined this site and, unfortunately, not a good one.

 Last weekend I did Bucktown Art fair, in Chicago and would like to point that it was not a good art fair. Not for me. Some people did well, but those with low price point. This was more of "community art fair" where everything and anything goes. I should have  known better, mia culpa...maxima!!


  But, I am glad to join this group of people and hope to help with my judgement as  well…

It was so dusty! Everything got coated with dust when we loaded out. Also  we brought a rake to clear our site of a bunch of twigs and branches and things. I'm sorry the show was not so good for you.

Ana, as Geoff responded to your remark about Howard Allen, it's your right to have an opinion. I disagree, however, with your strong judgement about HA. I am familiar with many opinions that circulate among artists concerning HA and their show directors, and not all of them are positive. It is, however, an undeniable fact that HA, and also ACE for that matter, offers an opportunity to many of us to participate in a number of great to fair art and craft shows across Florida and other locations without necessarily breaking the bank. Our personal experience, especially when working with HA and ACE show directors like Helayne and Shirley, has always been very positive and pleasant. And, most importantly, most shows attract a great number of visitors, though not always buyers. The latter can not be faulted to Howard Allen or ACE.
