Sections of St james - Kentucky art show

I am applying for the st james court art show, yet there are 4 distinct sections to the show. I am ignorant of the show layout, certain parts of a show usually have a flavor, or focus, if you will. I make contemporary aluminum wall pieces.; which section(s) should I be considering? See More

What are the best things about art fairs
You see the reactions of people to your work. Ideas start tumbling out of other artist's mouth. People look, laugh, cry,
Best show ever and why
Cherry Creek Stanley show. My first show, sold my highest price piece with 5 minutes of show opening
Worst show ever and why
Loveland Sculpture festival. Almost no people attended the show; it was very disheartening.

What is one fun fact about yourself?
As an artist, I recognize that my business plan (make pretty things at great time and expense) is for the birds; and that is ok. The reactions of customers, when they squint, and their eyes go wide when the recognize what they are looking at, that makes it all worth while.
