Suttons Bay Art Fair. Sounds crazy I know. I grew up in northern Michigan and have always struggled with my art career. Last summer after years of never having any interest in Michigan shows other than the occasional demoralizing appearance at Ann Arbor I finally applied to Suttons Bay. It's close to my family and it isn't very expensive. It turned out to be a great experience. I didn't move into a new tax bracket or anything but I had a good show and felt as though I had finally found my audience. This along with the non corporate all volunteer nature of the show and it's beautiful setting make it a star in my book.
Worst show ever and why
Ann Arbor. Expensive. Low Sales. Greed in general. Weather. Length. The only good thing is my friends coming to stay with me!
