A potential way to start art shows

Posted on April 26, 2020 at 11:30am 1 Comment

A potential way to start art shows on a limited basis. A drive by art show. Artists set their tents up either in the street facing the center of the street (if the street is wide enough) or on the sidewalk facing the street. Then potential customers slowly drive by stopping to ask questions or purchasing what they see.

Lots of issues and need of discussions.

Check out the examples of my art photography:…
