Reading through the various posts, it seems that Reviews of Shows are a sought commodity. Thus, I thought I'd do a little blog-journelling, as I am getting ready to jump into the Art Fair scene for the first time. Might be worth a few laughs for you, the experienced artists out there, as you read about the various shenanigans I get into as I go along. Here's where things stand today:
