Paragon Fine Art Fests

I  am curious about the Paragon Fine Art Fests.  Has anyone ever done any of the
Texas shows?  How about the Florida shows?  I am looking for feedback to decide if they are worth appling for.

Hi douglas, Thanks for the speedy response.
Did you get a chance to see my work? If so, can you give me an idea (without any obligation of course we all know this business of ours is a roulette) how 2D like mine can be received by the patrons in those shows?
What would they look for, rally cheap items or more expensive ones?

Hi Douglas,
I'm an artist residing in Florida, my medium is mixed media. You can see samples of my work and a description of the process at

Living in Florida does not expose me to many Oklahoma artists, as a matter of fact I don't know any...

I participated last year in two shows in Kansas, the Mulvane Museum in Topeka and Smoky Hill River in Salina.
In the first I had very poor sales and in the second very good sales. I intend to apply again for the Salina show this year.

I wonder if you could give me some information about the shows in your state, specifically the shows in Lawton, Norman and Tulsa that will take place this May .

Thank you

Ynon Mabat
