I don't get irked very often, but when I get a "call to artists" promotion, that is well written, usually very beautiful and well created. I look at it and say, "wow, looks great, where's it at" but…Continue

Is it just me, or is anyone else experiencing small print on this site. I know we had some server issues a month ago, and maybe the gremlin has reappeared.Continue

I don't get irked very often, but when I get a "call to artists" promotion, that is well written, usually very beautiful and well created. I look at it and say, "wow, looks great, where's it at" but then it doesn't give the viewer any indication of the state or even city it is located in. It may just say Fall Art Show, or Visit Us on Main Street, etc., and when that happens, I usually just delete it and go on to the next. Promoters, when you spend all that time and money on creating your…See More

Hi Larry, St. Pete really isn't that far away from Fort Myers. I'm a newbie that's for sure. I don't have enough work for a show but I'm working on that.

I see you work in wood. What do you do? And do you do shows? If so, anything down my direction or in the Sarasota/Bradenton area?
