Hi Nancy!  Great to connect with a fellow animal lover!  I'm always looking for animal related venues.  My first show for the year will be Lake County Fair Grounds in Grayslake (stepbystep productions).  Last year I did the Grayslake Art Fair, I need to get that info mailed in, time seems to slip away.  Good luck at the "pug" show!

Hey Nancy!
I'll let you know how it goes for me and try to get an idea how the 2D artists are doing at this show. Best to you!

Hi Nancy, thanks for the tip on Retro. Actually, we put Custer's Last Stand on our list this year...we will do it...thanks for the thumbs up. I zapp juried for the Hyde Park Art Fair, we will see if I get in...wish me luck!

I did Lincoln Park Art Faire last is small but relatively inexpensive and I did well...and will do it again this is towards the end of the season...right at the corner of Lincoln Park and Clark in front of the Lincoln Park Conservatory which is where you would get your app.
Happy Creating~
