Uptown Art Fair - Minneapolis - Black Lives Matter

Covid-19 has prevented many art fairs from taking place this year.  One show that will definitely look different is the Uptown Art Fair.  While the Uptown Art Fair will be canceled, it will be adapted for the changing times. The Uptown Association decided to cancel their traditional art show which was planned for August 7-9, 2020 to protect the health and safety of the artists, art patrons, guests, neighbors, and volunteers. However, art will still continue to take place.  The Uptown…See More

Years in the Art Fair Business
I actually have worked for a handcolored photographer for many years and helped him do matting, framing, shipping, and other work around the studio.
First show ever
First real art show I ever went to was the Ann Arbor Art Fair. I really loved working at that show. It was amazing.
What are the best things about art fairs
Meeting new people, seeing all the great work of the other artists.
Best show ever and why
Ann Arbor Art Fair because it is so big and there is something there for everyone. I enjoyed the art atmosphere, the creative people, and the patrons.

Connie Mettler, of course.
What is one fun fact about yourself?
I was a member of a National Championship Cross Country team 2 years in a row.

Posted on February 11, 2020 at 8:30am 4 Comments

    Once again I have spent some time evaluating the www.Artshowreviews.com website.   Take a look.  I think you will find some very interesting facts.  We know many of our artists use our Art Show Reviews website.  We know because you have also told us many times that you do use it when you are making up your schedules. 

    However, we need your help.  This website will not be as useful to…
