I think it would be appropriate for all artists to avoid applying to any show in North Carolina and Mississippi until they repeal the law that allows people to discriminate against Transgender people.Continue

Best show ever and why
4th Ave Spring Art Fair 2013 Tucson
Sold a $5000 piece, had several return customers from last fall's show and did over $10,000 for the second time in two shows.
Worst show ever and why
Gold Coast Art Fair 2013, Chicago.
Well run, beautiful place, but poor selection of artists and a very non-buying crowd. The good customers have learned the quality of the show has been going down and stopped coming.
Who referred you to Please be specific.
Chad, a man I met at the Stone Arch art Fair

Downtown Boulder Fall Fest Art Show

Posted on August 19, 2012 at 5:00pm 2 Comments

I've been accepted for the Downtown Boulder Fall Fest Art Show which is Sept 22 and 23rd.  I live in Minneapolis so it's a 1000 mile trip each way so it's got to be a  pretty good show for that effort. I can't find any reviews of the show. Does anyone know anything about it? The deadline for me accepting their invitation is Aug 27.
